Thought this was an interesting piece, but way out of my price range.
I have that same one. I bought it about 10 + years ago. I think I paid $350.00 for it. I know itís wasnít any where near $1500!!
One brought $ 2,820 at Christies auction a while back.
There are several for sale on Ebay right now with prices ranging from $600 to $980. A quick scan of the ones recently sold would lead me to believe the average selling price is closer to $500.
The CL one is a first edition there is also a second one.
The second edition was cheaper in both price and quality from what I have seen.
How do you tell a 1st from a 2nd?
The second edition was made in 2008 for the 100th Anniversary it has a different label
I have one still boxed never opened still sealed from the factory, will sell for $450.00 plus freight. I believe its a 1st edition but have not looked at the label on the box for 10 years.
Based on the date on the plate, I now know mine is a 1st edition as I purchased it back in the mid 1990's
