Out of curiosity, just how much does the corday faux ivory horse go for?

I keep seeing the same one on ebay and wonder if the price is way too high for this solid [Confused]

Hi Lisa,

It is to high.

The going price now is around $100.
The most I have ever seen it was $200 back in the days of higher prices for "other solids".

I would for myself pay some over $100 but not $200. But then I am getting stingy.

Yep, it's way too high. I've been bidding against this same seller only to loose so she can resell for big bucks. [Sleep] Tsk tsk listing fees are mounting. [Roll Eyes]

Hi Greyhound !
The ivory horse is on auction the third time and I don't think that she can sell it for that price.
Much to high.

Can't believe someone bid! I guess I'll STILL have to compete against this seller next time someone lists. [Puzzled]

Maybe that wasn't a real bidder.
Just trying to make it look like it sells for that much. So next time around it will go high.

That happens in other auctions .
It is pretty easy to get a friend to bid on your auction to make it appear to be worth more than it is.

Or maybe someone just wanted it that bad.

I recently saw a Corday 'ivory' unicorn necklace but the photo was so blurry I didn't dare take a chance. Now that the horse is gone, I'm regretting not having bid on it

I thought the price was too high, too, but I haven't seen another one. Are they relatively rare?

Seems as if the Corday solids are enjoying a comeback. Saw three go for over a hundred on ebay - the ivory horse, carousel and fish. Are these rare? Ann you probably know. Have to say these are nice looking solids.

The fish just went for $180.49 =
unusually high. [Eek!]

But, saw a couple go around $40 = bargain. [Silly]

I bought one MIB for $75 =
lucky it didn't go higher, although wished it was cheaper. [Smile]

Some of the Corday solids seem to be making a come back from low prices.

They are still not back up to their high of a few years ago ( she painfully says).

The rocking horse , jack in the box, fish, signet, carousel and horse use to sell for $300-500.

Margaret and I have bought many of these Max Factor and Corday solids lately just because we like them. They are very well made and a lot of them are in great condition for their age. I have to confess that I paid over $200 for the ivory horse (and bid that much again and lost). We may be crazy but we love the look and feel of these old solids.

Hi,

You are right about the look and feel of these older solids. [Big Grin]

They are made so much better than the current solids.
Maybe that is why Corday is no longer with us. [Frown]

Ann & Ken

P.S.
We paid well over $200 for ours also. [Smile]

Thanks for the backup Ann and Ken. We were feeling kinda out there on a limb. We kinda think that if the Estee collectors got a good look at some of these old ones they would want a few in their collection. The Jack in the Box is a great example of a good one. Also the rocking horse is a great one. [Smile]

Can't leave out the Carousel and the Dauphin. [Smile]

One of my all time favorites is the wax sealer.
Signet de Corday.
If you can find it MIB it comes with the wax sticks and I guess you could really use it. What am I saying , use a MIB. [Eek!] [Eek!]
Although I have heard of folks actually using the perfume in the solids. [Eek!] [Eek!] [New Laugh]
