Not that we’re superstitious or anything, but we’ve posted 12 item listings today just in case. To cap it off, we’ve got a box of several holiday light strings (approximately 10 strings) at a bright & winning price.
42939-1. There’s something very Miss Havisham about this piano—with lovely wood that must have been dazzling when new, and with its classical lyre-styled pedal mount, the grand old era from which it came remains visible despite the nicks and scratches of time. The story of the Erard company is as fascinating as its creations (really, Google it when you can), and if we’re reading the internal numeral correctly, this piece may be from between 1861 – 1870. Internal piano #: 42833. We are working at assessing the current fair market value and will price it accordingly. We also know that the German Schimmel company bought the Erard name in the 20th century.
House set: $20.00; Party Ware set: $30.00; Dolls: $10.00 each
Little Tykes Toddle Toy Family House set, Little Tykes Party Ware set, 14” Love Me Baby dolls by Lovee Doll. Okay, I have to admit, I had to look up the Lovee Doll & Toy Company because I couldn’t believe it was real. Not only was it a real company, it STILL is, somewhere in NYC and somehow without its own website, which: interesting. These boxed gems appear to be from the 1970s or ‘80s, and we know some adults who would get a kick out of owning these, which: also interesting.
Fancy Boogie Nights lettering isn’t the only attraction to this groovy set of appliance rollers—check out the model’s sassy, carefree kerchief and the ease with which she is now able to move that leviathan brown fridge. So much easier to retrieve all those cat toys now.
42879-7. Savvy design appreciators know the Thonet name means simple & striking mid-century modern pieces, and this bent wood desk is a prime example. One big, central drawer means you’ll never have to wonder which drawer your thing-a-mabob is in. Or your doo-hickey! Measures 3’ x 18” x 30”H.
42885-7. It’s rare that I can’t tell if something is wood or laminate, but this very nice-looking reception desk is one such creature. It came to us listed as a wood desk, but its surface appears so utterly unblemished and shiny that I thought it must be a really slick veneer, which it also could be. I suppose it’s possible that some wood is so nice I think it’s veneer (“too nice to be real?”), but then this throws so much into question for me on a Friday that I just don’t know what to do or say anymore other than Go, Hawks, so there you go. Measures 71 x 39 x 41”H.
42918-3. Much like a Seahawks win, this desk is big and gorgeous. Features five wide drawers and a work surface so expansive you could just about win the Stupendous Bowl on it. Measures 40” x 7’ x 31”H.
