The value of work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh is set to soar in price after the fire at the Glasgow School of Art, according to auction experts.
Sellers were “amazed” at the rocketing value of a set of chairs by the iconic architect, who designed the art school.
A pair of the set of six chairs sold for £13,200 in March before the fire devastated the building in May. Just five months later, another pair of ebonised oak “ladder back chairs” went for £36,050 at auction.
But the latest two from the set exceeded all expectations.
