Justin Miller, a Los Angeles resident, stumbled upon the mesmerizing item - a high-backed Danish chair from the 1930s - during a random browsing session on Facebook Marketplace. Showing incredible intuition, Miller decided to take a chance and bought a chair for only $50.

Experts believe that there are only about 50 such chairs in the world . This rarity, combined with its design, has undoubtedly contributed to the remarkable demand.
Before the auction, Sotheby's estimated the cost of the chair in the range of $30,000 to $50,000. However, the final bid exceeded all expectations, confirming the chair's status as a real gem in the world of collectible furniture.
After such news - everyone should go to the "Furniture" section and try their luck!
