The chair that JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, sat on while writing the first two books has sold in the US for around $NZD560,000.

JK Rowling picked up the chair for free in Edinburgh before writing the books.

The chair has messages written from JK Rowling, including: “O, you may not find me pretty but don’t judge on what you see” and “I wrote Harry Potter while sitting on this chair”.

The chair also comes with a letter written by the author, saying that the chair hurt her back.

It reads: “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. My nostalgic side is quite sad to see it go, but my back isn’t.”

  1. Seriously, that’s just ridiculous. Unless you’re J.K Rowling’s biggest fan, I would buy it for $1,000. That’s like buying a blank canvas and buying it for 1 million dollars because it was made by your favourite author/artist.

    People these days don’t know what they’re buying -_-
