Karl Springer used a lot of lacquered goatskin in his furniture. There are hundreds of his goatskin parchment tables out there. As this auction is in Chicago and he had an operation there, best guess is that it's Springer.   http://www.nytimes.com/1991/12/06/nyregion/karl-springer-60-a-designer-of-classic-and-exotic-furniture.html   lefty
I think it would be very tough to find a goatskin covered table in that design, new or otherwise, for less than 3k.   lefty
The Wright design auction is online. Typically more interesting than Rago. Estimates are fakakta though.   http://www.wright20.com/auctions/2016/03/design   lefty
 I worked on a movie where Tiegs was nude and we had to add some body covering which meant rotoscoping her body frame by frame. Fun project. This is the pic that changed young LD's life.    [[SPOILER]]    For me though, it was Elke Sommers, Joey Heatherton and Angie Dickinson. lefty

I'm pretty sure that's par for the course for any NYC neighbourhood.   Had my details wrong. The guy who abandoned his apt did so because of the FBI. The CIA guy (5F) was an undercover CIA operative (he was known as "the black Steven Seagal") who was arrested and convicted for drugging and raping a women in Cairo while serving as the bureau chief.    lefty
I will never give up my truck.   An another NYC note: when you make friends with the head of the co-op board and get them drunk one night you hear the best stories. Like the brothel being run out of apt 4D. Or the guy in 12A who spent 1M renovating then abandoned his apt fleeing into the night when the CIA came looking for him.    Never dull here.   lefty
