The March 2022 issue of Maine Antique Digest has an article by Lita Solis-Cohen on the sale of the Pfaffenroth collection that was sold at Sotheby’s on January 19. The dressing table I restored in 1993 is illustrated in the article. The caption mentions my blog posts about the restoration and how Erik Gronning found my card glued to an interior surface. Estimated by Sotheby’s to sell between $5,000 and $8,000, it sold to Graham Arader III for $5670. That’s less than a decent modern reproduction. Substantially less than a great one. Seems like a good deal for an object that, while having undergone an appreciable restoration, still has much original material intact and that can be attributed to a known cabinetmaker’s shop.
