Mario Bautta Auction UPDATED

Horse Country Chic has alerted us to the auction of Mario Buatta's estate next week, which will include his needlepoint pillows.

His chintz fabrics were Must Haves in the 1980s and I think his style will come back again.  Sotheby's is holding the auction.  You can browse the two part catalogue online but the auction items will be on display in Manhattan before the sale if you are in the area.

UPDATE:  One lot of needlepoint animal pillows sold for $17,500 USD.

UPDATE #2:  A second auction of Mario Buatta's estate is scheduled for March 13-14, 2020.  There are a few pillows and quite a few framed needlepoint designs, particularly of dogs.
