Grogan Auctions $60,375 Highboy
DEDHAM, MASS. – On February 2 a Massachusetts flattop highboy sold for $60,375 at Grogan’s Winter Auction.
The narrow width (base some 37 inches, top approximately 35 inches) accentuated the verticality of the 74-inch case piece. A center drawer of each section was decorated with a sunburst-type fan.
The high bidder told correspondent Bob Jackman, “I am a Connecticut collector, and I bought it for another Connecticut collector. He is an advanced, sophisticated collector, and I am sure that he will be very happy with it.”
