A demi-lune mahogany Sheraton-style sideboard, English Chippendale-style oval dining room table with carved claw and ball feet, a mid-19th century mahogany flame-front chest of drawers with elaborately carved legs with lion paw feet, a tall post canopy bed with a raised panel headboard and other prized items donated over the years to the Historic Beaufort Foundation will be featured in a July 29-30 Summer Sale in downtown Beaufort.
“At our Summer Sale, we’ll be offering to the public a number of unique finds that have been donated to the Foundation over the years for our use, without any restrictions,” said Lise Sundrla, assistant director at Historic Beaufort Foundation. “These are items given to us for the benefit of the Foundation to use or to sell and are not part of our Verdier House collection.”
The event is set for July 29-30 at the Best Western Sea Island Inn on Bay Street in downtown Beaufort, from noon to 4 p.m. on July 29 and then 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 30. Admission is free to the sale. Sale items include furnishings, decorative arts, books and publications, art and more.
“We have some beautiful pieces in this sale, but we’d much rather they find a good home than stay in climate-controlled storage with us,” Sundrla said.
Delivery options will be available at the sale if needed, or buyers are welcome to take their purchases directly home themselves.
Proceeds from the sale will support Historic Beaufort Foundation’s work to preserve, protect and present sites and artifacts of historic, architectural and cultural interest across Beaufort County.
