Christie's charges a Buyer's premium calculated at 23.205% of the hammer price for each lot with a value up to €110,000. If the hammer price of a lot exceeds €110,000 then the premium for the lot is calculated at 23.205% of the first €110,000 plus 11.9% of any amount in excess of €110,000. Buyer's Premium is calculated on this basis for each lot individually.
Please note that the table top is silver plated.
The present lot is illustrated in Alchimia, Milan, 1985, p. 35. The design for the front decoration is illustrated in the exhibition catalogue Allessandro Mendini, Groninger Museum, 1988, on page 162.
