Last year, when workers were dismantling Le Bec Fin before its conversion to Avance, I reported that the twin grand crystal chandeliers were headed to a private buyer.

The buyer must have decided that they do not go with the carpets.

S&S Auction of Repaupo, N.J., will sell them, along with sconces and Trumeau mirror, on March 9.

Opening bid for each chandelier - and please buy them in pairs, because they will be lonely otherwise - is $50.

Catalog is here.

William H. Bunch Auctions, meanwhile, is selling 11 Louis XV chairs from Le Bec Fin online today.
