Private Sales at Shapiro Auctioneers

In February of this year Shapiro Auctioneers sold by private treaty a rare 18th Century French side table for $30,000.00. The table was stamped R Lacroix, one of the leading cabinet makers in Paris, whose furniture also graced the hallways of Versailles. The table had excellent provenance as once being in the ownership of Lord Tate, the original founder of the Tate Gallery in London. The table was sold within 24 hours to a private collector in Paris.
