Another Thursday and another trip to the auction house for a preview of Friday’s auction. As has been the case in the past few months, nothing spectacular or extraordinary but a few things that caught my eye. A few things that I can’t recall seeing before.

First is this Moravian stool. I’ve seen a few at Old Salem but none in the wild.
