I was perusing the "Saturday Sale" on 1st Dibs this morning and came across this original Saarinen (for Knoll) side table offered for a sale price of $3760 by Threshold (an absolutely fantastic website with a treasure trove of antiques and accessories)
I thought to myself....THREE THOUSAND seven hundred and sixty dollars!!??? THAT is a sale price?? I know to have an "original" piece is more valuable and will appreciate, but really...would you buy a table for that amount of cash when you can get a brand new one at Design Within Reach for $759? I have seen these "originals" on 1st Dibs before...same style table for less than $1000. Was wondering what makes this one worth so much more...it has a scratch in the base as well...Someday, I will have one of these babies but not on "sale" for over $3K! WOW!
