1950S SOFA BY ICO PARISI
Sold at Phillips, “Design Masters” (New York, December 17)Provenance heightened interest in this modern sofa, comprising an upholstered seat and back that are joined by a walnut frame. The Palermo, Italy–born architect devised the piece for his own family, in whose possession it remained for over 50 years. “It’s a unique, undeniably great work,” says Phillips specialist Domenico Raimondo, acknowledging that the Parisi market has been buoyed by robust demand for all things midcentury Italian. The sofa brought $70,000, more than triple its $18,000 high estimate.

UNTITLED, CIRCA 1958, BY RUTH ASAWA

Sold at Rago, “Fine Art” (Lambertville, New Jersey, November 16)
A bidding war erupted over this sinuous hanging sculpture, part of a signature series of wire creations by Asawa, who died last year at age 87. As documented in an accompanying letter from the San Francisco artist dated November 3, 1958, the work’s original price tag was $300. More than five decades later, carrying an estimate of $80,000–$100,000, the 61”-tall piece hammered for a remarkable $520,000.

$300? $520,000? …It’s just paper.
