R. J. Horner Hall Chair

Published by under RJ Horner


While this isn’t one of R.J. Horner’s best work, I wanted to capture the image due to the fact that this is a labeled piece that I have not seen before. R. J. Horner was at the location in N.Y. shown on the label from as early as 1886. Bidding starts at $150 and expected range is $300 to $600. Bidding ends on the 15th of February.

R.J. Horner Carved Griffin Parlor Set

Published by under RJ Horner

Brand new imported Baranzelli/Scalamandre silk damask from Italy on this powerful R.J. Horner (attributed) parlor set with carved griffins and outstretched wings. There is a lion mask on each of the seatbacks as well as paw/claw feet. Currently bid up to $4,100 with 8 days to go, I’m sure it will climb much higher. More detail on this set can be seen here.
