Majorelle Desk, $1M desk set
SUCCESSION DISPUTE RESOLUTION
A family divided over succession rights almost put this French desk set in a yard sale. David J. Goldberg valued it. Final price: $1.1M at Sotheby’s.

Knowledge is money. This star lot was discovered in a routine personal property appraisal by the Appraisal Group. On advice from the Appraisal Group, the desk and its chair were placed in a highly publicized international auction. When the hammer went down, the shouts of joy resounded from Louisiana to Paris.

An estate tied up in litigation was costing everyone money. When the Appraisal Group set the fair market value of its antiques and fine art at around $200,000, the contents were swiftly sent to auction.

Mitigate the losses. It took several weeks for the Appraisal Group to determine the value of the more than 1,200 items of Southern antiques and fine regional art that filled the historic estate. The exercise was worth the effort. The Appraisal Group put the value at about $200,00. The properties were sold at auction, ending seven years of litigation.
