NEW YORK, NY -- Furnishings for dining in the grand style achieved exceptional prices at Doyle’s October 18, 2023 auction of English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts. The sale showcased a broad selection of elegant furniture, Georgian silver, porcelain, mirrors, clocks, chandeliers, tapestries and rugs from distinguished estates and prominent collections.

Highlighting the auction was an important set of twelve Geoge IV Gothic Revival oak dining chairs more than tripled their $7,000-10,000 estimate to realize $34,650. Originally part of a set of forty-eight, the dining chairs were designed by John Foster, Jr. of Liverpool. They were commissioned in 1820 by the 12th Earl of Derby for the State Dining Room at Knowsley Hall, Lancashire.

An elegant set of twelve Continental quartz and lapis obelisk-form place card holders soared past their estimate of $1,500-3,000 to achieve a stunning $20,160. And a Regency mahogany, part-ebonized and gilt-bronze mounted extension dining table sold for $5,670, surpassing its $2,000-4,000 estimate.
