Los Angeles Modern Auctions offers unsold Eames, Maloof and Warhol at minimum prices

June 30, 2011 |  8:18 am


184-2 Although the cabinet shown above was one of the most popular items at the Los Angeles Modern Auctions preview last week, it did not sell Sunday at auction.

Good news: The 50-year-old piece by an anonymous Dutch architect can still be had. Design fans who missed the bidding or simply decided afterward that it must be theirs can buy it for $2,500.

Los Angeles Modern Auctions sold $1.5 million worth of goods on Sunday and will continue to offer lots that went unsold, but this time with no bidding. Lots are listed at set prices, the minimums the owners of each object is willing to accept. Prices include the auction house commission.

The leftovers range from a $200 American Modern lacquered coffee table to a $56,250 Andy Warhol  screen print called "The Marx Brothers." Other items include a Charles and Ray Eames ESU-420-C storage unit, $8,750; Eames lounge chair and ottoman, $4,375; and a 1965 Sam Maloof armchair with green upholstery, right, listed at $6,000. 

LAMA Managing Director Shannon Loughrey said she expects the inventory to last through the next three weeks. A complete list of available lots is available online. The authenticity of every item offered for sale is guaranteed. All sales are final. (323) 904-1950.
