If an auction and its cast of items were likened to a cinematic production, nobody would be able to predict its ending. You might have your favorite movie characters picked out, but who jumps into the spotlight to carry the plot is anyone’s guess.
We are always on the look out for moments that elevate unsuspecting items and Bidsquare bidders created quite a few zingers during Skinner’s 20th Century Design sale on December 14th.
Here are the Top 5 items that stole the show on Bidsquare!
What could have been an extra drinking coffee in the background of our auction movie turned into an oscar winning performer. These playful storage units rushed into focus as the highest selling lot in the sale and sold for nearly 57x their $300.00 high estimate for a whooping $17,200.00!
This classic group of dining chairs spun around and double stepped well above their high estimate. Hans Wegner always proves popular on the modern design scene and these teak and upholstered stars didn’t disappoint.
Clink your goblets together! This ensamble of Tiffany art glass cracked their high estimate of $2,500.00 and sprouted skyward. Click here to see more Tiffany results from the sale.
