    It is called a:

    Caesar’s Royal Lions Hand-Carved Throne Chair

    Baroque style

    if genuine approx 3500- 40 000

    have it assed by Sotheby's

    and do not be scared of a reserve placed by then, it usualy achieves 10x as much

    Chairs and tables like that achieve astronomical prices, a simple Duncan Phife table can set you back USD$ 120 000

    regards SACGS SUPPORT

            I always feel so happy when someone "comes across" a bargain. Hope it is worth every dollar that it seems to be ...!
            Yesterday I was clever and wanted to change the world.
            Today I am wise and am changing myself.

              thanks guys and gals have spoken to Sotheby's and they have a guy in the area next week who is going to come and check it out, but they are talking in 40000 to 80000 price range!! I am stunned to say the least as I offered the poor guy I got it from R500 if this plays out well I will definately go and give him a couple thousand more!!

                Lightning only strikes once.
                You paid in good faith and unless he is short of cash rather keep quiet otherwise they start asking questions.

                    It looks superb, and you done the right thing by contacting them.

                    Remember:

                    You will not find a 'Rembrand, van Gogh, and or a Monet' sold by any other means but by public auction.

                    The same applies to rarities like these..

                      Nubbi - you restore one's faith in humankind! That would be the most wonderful surprise for a man who is battling. Bless you! :)

                        I want to come and "test" your beautiful chair - how much will you charge per test run?
