The chair that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling sat in while writing the first two books of the series was sold at a New York City auction for $394,000, and an anonymous buyer made the bid, which far surpassed the seller, Gerald Gray’s, expectations.


On the chair are etched in words from Rowling herself, who wrote "Gryffindor," "I wrote Harry Potter in this chair," and signed the piece before initially auctioning it off in 2002 for $21,000 to benefit charity, the AP reports, adding that the furniture also comes with an original letter, written by the author.


"Dear new-owner-of-my-chair. I was given four mismatched dining room chairs in 1995 and this was the comfiest one, which is why it ended up stationed permanently in front of my typewriter, supporting me while I typed out ’Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ and ’Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," the note reportedly reads.


"My nostalgic side is quite sad to see it go, but my back isn’t."
