    Paid $15, Now headed for auction

    Found this super high end Councill Craftsmen carved mahogany accent chair at my local thrift store for $15. It is now headed to auction with a minimum reserve at $100 but should do much better. When new it sold for more than $1000.

    Years ago I bought a buttery soft nailhead trimmed leather chair with matching ottoman that set me back a bundle but I wanted a classy chair instead of a recliner. The first night I had it our cat scratched the crap out of it with her hind paw claws. I have disliked cats from that moment on.
    Until I get it safely to the auction house this aternoon it resides in my bedroom which is off-limits to my daughters cat.

    Council Craftsman used solid mahogany and not veneers. This was a very expensive piece in its day. I do not believe they make furniture out of solid mahogany anymore. You should definitely do well.

    UPDATE:

    Went to the auction on Saturday to see how the chair would do. A 'friend' was there also. Actually he was our president in the MRO I belong to. I was his VP. He had caused me more anguish during those years than I care to even think about. Suffice to say, a very poor leader but still a friend nonetheless.
    He bought a very heavy coffee table at the auction that was topped with an equally heavy piece of tempered glass and asked if I would help him load it into hs SUV. I agreed to help him but warned him that I'd better not miss what I'd came to see which of course is my chair going on the block.

    After loading the coffee table he says, 'ok, hop in, or do you want to drive your Jeep to my house?'
    'WHAT? Dude, I told you I am not missing my chair auction! I will drive over after the auction and help you unload the table!' (luckily he lives only a mile or so from the auction house)

    So then he tells me to stand by, he is going to 'hook me up'. I saw him walk over to where the furniture is held as he is having a conversation with one of the auction house helpers.
    Next thing I know is my chair is immediately put on the block only moments after his talk with me and the helper.
    He had talked the helper into putting my chair up next so that I could leave sooner and help him with his stupid coffee table!

    Where did he get the right to push forward something that didn't belong to him and had no intention of bidding on? Of course I didn't find out about it until I got to his house and boy, I was steamed! I thought it seemed strange that my chair went on the block as soon as he left and now I know why.

    By the way, the chair failed to meet the reserve and did not sell. I will cancel the reserve and try again next week. I sure hope my 'friend' doesn't show up.

    Next week, park a few blocks away and attend the Auction incognito. Make sure you do not sit anywhere near him, turn your' phones ringer don't and don't answer any calls or texts from him.
