Russian Kids Furniture Smuggled Right Under My Nose


So Rago auctions off a trio of vintage Russian modern kid furniture last October without telling me? What gives?

The set, a table, rocking chair, and side char in birch plywood, had "Made in USSR" labels, and was estimated to go for $400 - 600. It went for $210, including the 20% premium, so bidding was non-existent. They probably started at $200, got no bids, and someone scooped them up for $175. Yeah, capitalism, that's cheaper than off-the-rack at DWR.

What's the point of winning the Cold War if we can't enjoy the spoils? I'm the big man. I need the info, auction people.

We happen to have the table, two chairs and the rocking chair. All are in good condition.

I noticed this is from a year ago...are you still interested? We were going to bring them to a vintage dealer or post them on Craig's list.
