Rare Majorelle Orchid Desk Discovered In Tiny Louisiana Town

Rare Majorelle Orchid Desk Discovered In Tiny Louisiana Town.

A family in Carencro, Louisiana, a town of about 6,000 near Lafayette, was stunned recently when appraiser David J. Goldberg told them the family home held a rare Louis Majorelle desk worth an estimated $250,000.

The family had no idea the Art Nouveau desk and matching chair were of the Orchid bedroom suite created in 1903 by the renown French cabinetmaker Louis Majorelle.

Louis Majorelle was a co-founder of Ecole d’Nancy, the French movement that helped popularize Art Nouveau in France. His designs are in many museum collections, including MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum, Chicago’s Driehaus Museum and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

This is not the first time Mr. Goldberg, an appraiser for more than forty years, has delivered good news to an unsuspecting famiy. In fact, he has a reputation for recognizing treasures others have overlooked.

Among these is a 19th century William H. Buck Louisiana landscape with a $75 garage sale tag on it. Another recent find, a Newcomb Pottery Arts and Crafts style ceramic tile series went off at Rago Auctions this past weekend. The winning bid was $81,250.
