Peter’s Post-Auction Picks for the May 6, 2012 Auction

May 14, 2012

In one important way, the May 6th record breaking sale isn’t even over. In all auctions there are lots where the available bidders are unable to meet the consignor’s reserve–the result is an opportunity for some incredible bargains and investments.

As there are several terrific works of art and design that are still obtainable, picking only five for today’s blog is like trying to pick your favorite child–you know you have one but you don’t want to hurt the other’s feelings. Thus, with a nod to that great child welfare officer, Solomon… we’re chopping the Post-Auction Picks blog in two as Dan Tolson picks his favorite design pieces still up for grabs, while I get to remind you of some of Peter’s personal favorites still up for sale.
