Bwahahalvar Aalto Children's Playset

allto_playset_ragoarts.jpg

So what did we discover in the upcoming Rago Arts Discovery auction scheduled for Sept. 11? That even with "(Attr.)" and "unmarked" in the lot description, it still takes a pretty big set of stones to sell this pile of ply scraps as an "Alvar Aalto Laminated Birch Child's Playset."

Meanwhile, there's a Schaukelwagen, identified only as "a child's wooden toy," paired up with a Cess Braakman sewing table. Totally random, and even at the low estimate of $800+premium, not a steal.

Lot 1167: Alvar Aalto (Attr.), est. $400-600 [ragoarts]
Lot 1070: CESS BRAAKMAN
Wood and seel sidetable together with wood child"s toy, est. $800-1200

What is the play value here? A thing that kinda make a slide and a bunch of pieces that look like they don't stack? I hope AA would have done a bit better.
