I don't usually buy furniture when I thrift
but these were too good to pass up!
My timing was perfection as I happened to be standing
at the back area of the Goodwill JUST as the base for this table was being
carried out to the floor. Down it went in front of me and I waited in
anticipation for the top. As he brought the heavy glass closer I declared, "I will buy this"
before it even got put on top of the base.
(good thing, as someone else forlornly gave me the thumbs up a few feet away)...
After some online research I found it's provenance; a walnut base Adrian Pearsall table called 'Jacks' circa 1960. Valued anywhere from $2,000-$3,000 depending on the dealer.
Not sure how but I hope to sell this piece...
My next find on the same day were these 2 Italian made leather & chrome cantilevered
chairs with their stickers intact underneath: "Sans Souci".
I can actually use these and they tuck in nicely against the wall so they are a keeper for now.
(oh, and they were priced at $5.00 each).
