J.K. Rowling was given this chair for free along with some other mismatched chairs in 1995. She used the most comfortable of the chairs as her writing chair. After the publication of the fourth Harry Potter book, Rowling donated the chair to a charitable auction called Chair-ish a Child. It sold for $29, 117.
Now the chair has returned to the auction block with an opening bid of $45, 000.
Before J.K. Rowling donated it, however, she added something special to the chair. Written in gold paint are things like: "You may not/ find me pretty/ but don't judge/ on what you see" as well as "I wrote Harry Potter in this chair." It also says "Gryffindor" and is decorated with stars and lightning bucks.
I am truly envious of the person who wins this chair. They truly have a piece of literary history that is priceless.
