Buyers who seek the luxury of fine furniture but can’t afford to buy new had plenty of choice at a New Jersey auction that featured used furniture from the Ralph Lauren Home line. A lucky bidder won a pair of leather wingback chairs for just over $6,000, while a similar new single chair is selling for over $8,000. Kovels’ October newsletter features other chairs and tables with the designer’s classic styling and high quality, along with their prices.

Collectors appreciate the bold, blue patterns of Delftware pottery, and the latest issue of Kovels features practical and decorative Delftware items from the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
