ABSTRACT
Antique colonial furniture prices have taken off in Tasmania but it's still possible to find reasonable value. A Carver chair that costs $7104. But it is Hobart, the mid-19th century chair is huon pine, and the market for colonial furniture is changing. Over the past few years, mainland auction houses have won the big house sales and a few large collections of Tasmania and some huge prices have been paid. Mainland dealers, more aware of the possibilities of inexpensive purchases in Tasmania, and cashed-up tourists with an eye for colonial furniture, make for fewer bargains in Tasmanian auctions and sleepy village shops.
