Highboy Brings $46,000 at Nadeau’s Spring Auction
WINDSOR, CT. – Made in Connecticut, a Queen Anne cherry highboy that had spent most of its life in homes in Glastonbury and Farmington led sales at Nadeau’s annual spring auction on March 22.
The casepiece – which came with a detachable pierced crest, according to some a vernacular attempt at a stylish Chapin-style bonnet – sold in the room to Woodbury, Conn. dealer Harold Cole for $46,000 including premium against an estimate of $25/35,000.
A pair of Windsor high chairs notable for their elegantly high backs was also knocked down to Cole for $12,075. In all, Nadeau’s realized just under $600,000 on 480 lots.
