A desk and chair used by noted author Charles Dickens while writing his book ‘Great Expectations’ has fetched 433,250 pounds at a charity auction in London.
The desk made of mahogany wood bears a bronze plaque, which carries the name of its famous owner.
The desk along with a walnut chair was passed down to the author’s great-great-grandson Christopher Charles Dickens.
After the death of Christopher, his wife Jeanne-Marie, Countess Wenckheim, donated both the items.
The Irish entrepreneur, Tom Higgins, who bought the furniture called the price ”a bargain” for such a piece of literary history.Courtsey : AIR
