Take care of your furniture and it may pay off for your descendants

A few years ago this Seymour mahogany card table showed up at an Antique’s Road Show. At the time they appraised it at between $200,000 and $250,000. The owner was very pleased. Recently she decided to take it to auction at Sotheby’s. Watch this quick one minute video clip to see what it brought.
