I am in the market for some pretty blue and white ceramic garden seats for my living room. These fine examples were sold by Skinner Auctioneers & Appraisers (here in Boston). I have been tempted to buy a mass produced version online for $100 or less, but the real thing can also be had for a reasonable price, as you'll see here. I've included the expensive stools too because they are too beautiful to overlook.
My favorites. This pair sold for a reasonable $356.
How about two seats plus an umbrella stand for $88? All modern pieces and not antiques, but an excellent buy.
My second favorites because of their delicate beauty and price. Sold for $95.
Stunning, but sold for $3,185.
This bold pair sold for $1,715.
So, I will try to sit tight, hold onto my wallet and wait for a unique and reasonably priced piece at Skinner. I hope it won't be a long wait.
