An oak chair from the 1930’s that J.K. Rowling sat upon – while creating the first two books of the Harry Potter series – has sold for $394,000 at auction.
It was one of four mismatched chairs given to the writer for her flat in Edinburgh, Scotland – back in the day.
That’s where she wrote Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
The famous chair has been auctioned twice before – once by Rowling to benefit charity.
Before it’s donation she painted on it; “You may not find me pretty–but don’t judge–on what you see.”
She also painted; “I wrote Harry Potter while sitting on this chair.”
