So, Pete found out that our local auctioneer was having a multi-estate auction in an air-conditioned space today and we decided to check it out. While there were a few items and lots that I wanted to bid on, there was one in particular that I knew I had to have. It was an unassuming box full of pretty nasty, beat up pots and pans, but hidden in one corner was this beautiful Cathrineholm pot.
Now if you know me, you know that I absolutely love the color orange! I also love Danish Modern -- so I really wanted this. If anyone else at the auction knew anything about Cathrineholm, I figured I wouldn't get it since I've seen these same pots listed on etsy for over $100. Luck must have been on my side because I got the box for $12.50! (I'll be selling the other things in the lot at our yard sale, so I might almost break even.)
I was worried because the previous owner had written her initials on the pan and lid with a black marker, but a light cleaning with BonAmi (love the stuff!) took it right off.
