End of Summer Auctions - Looking for Bargains!

I am a bit surprised at all the auctions that take place in August. It's vacation time after all, and the regular customers may not be around. Anyway, I went on-line looking for potentially interesting bargains.

This Georgian style settee has graceful lines and seems a good buy if it comes in near it's estimate of $200 - $400 at the Doyle@Home End of Summer sale August 18th in New York.

Doyle@Home - Lot 482

I think this Korean brass mounted hardwood chest is quite interesting and decorative. This has an estimate of $500 - $700. 

Doyle@ Home - Lot 471

This Louis XVI style mahogany writing desk has simple lines and would work in a traditional or modern styled room. This has an estimate of $400 - $600 which is a great price for a mahogany desk.

This modern brushed steel daybed with leather cushion and ottomon will be offered at the Stair Galleries Exposition sale August 28th in Hudson, NY. I think it's very cool looking. The auction estimate is $400 - 600, and there is no reserve.

The next Copake Auction August 21st in Copake, NY includes this pair of Empire style chairs with rush seats. I love all the curves, and the rush seats. They have an auction estimate of $150 - $250.

End of Summer may be a time for vacations, but keep an eye on the auction sites for that potential bargain find.
