Artwork auctioned at three times the upper estimate price

When the work United States Ship of the Line Ohio by James Edward Buttersworth was auctioned at Christies in New York in May 2018, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at a - in retrospect quite modest - USD 150,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than three times as high at USD 456,500.00 (€ 391,173.95). Despite this good result, it is not the highest hammer price for an artwork by James Edward Buttersworth; that achieved among the auctions we observed the lot The Yacht "Magic" Defending America'S Cup, 1870 sold at auction in November 2014 with the realized price of USD 821,000.00 (€ 660,073.97).

Kunstwerk zum Dreifachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit United States Ship of the Line Ohio von James Edward Buttersworth im Mai 2018 bei Christies in New York versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – USD 150.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit USD 456.500,00 (€ 391.173,95) mehr als dreimal so hoch. Trotz des guten Ergebnisses ist dies nicht der höchste Zuschlag für ein Kunstwerk von James Edward Buttersworth; den erzielte unter den von uns beobachteten Auktionen die Arbeit The Yacht "Magic" Defending America'S Cup, 1870 im November 2014 mit dem Hammerpreis von USD 821.000,00 (€ 660.073,97).
