~CAROL BOVE . . Phillips / up-dated: SOLD
this piece sold for just under it’s high estimate, not bad !!
unless you check out how her shelf piece did – in same auction: sky rocketed !!
this piece composed solely of real peacock feathers, did not do as well as her shelve piece, which is way less interesting in my opinion (!!) probably because buyers were wary of buying anything ‘organic’ – that could degrade through time. in my opinion this buyer – made out like a thief !! good one !!
