The catalogue for the Dorothy Draper Auction on September 29 at the Potomack Auction rooms is now available on-line. They are accepting on-line bids for the items. Here are some of the pieces that will be available. There are 209 lots in the Draper section.
One of the fascinating items on the block is a pair of screens that were used to hide the doors to the underground bunker at the Greenbrier. This was where Congress and the Cabinet would hide out in case of a nuclear threat during the Cold War.
The estimates seem very reasonable - chairs starting at $30, head and footboards for $100. There is also a lot of artwork in addition to the furniture and furnishings.
I think that there will be a lot of interest in this auction. I am certainly going to try and go!
