What did Marc say about the review?

Marc told the owner, “What I do know is that a smaller version of this, a console table, was put up for auction a few years ago.

“It didn’t have a platform base, it was missing the top, and it wasn’t in brilliant condition, and it raised £ 55,000.

“We can’t really say what we have here, but it’s a lot better than £ 55,000.

It’s bigger, it’s more complete. For me it’s better quality.

He added, “It’s bigger, it’s more complete. For me it’s better quality.

“I could suggest that if we put it in a really good auction somewhere in Hong Kong, for example in a very specialized oriental sale, that a table like this could make £ 80,000 to £ 120,000.”

The owner smiled broadly and casually replied, “That’s nice!”

“I’ve thought long and hard about what it might be worth. I have to say I haven’t seen very many of them. I think I’ve sold one in my career, ”said expert Bill Harriman.

“There is no reason to doubt that it is not right. If so, then I think it must be £ 150,000. “
