If you like modern furniture, then this will not be up your alley. A Nicholas Brown antique secretary that was originally made around 1760 was sold at Christie’s auction house for $12,100,000. This is the highest price ever paid at auction for a piece of American furniture.
If you can find a Chippendale antique secretary originally made by the Goddard-Townsend family of cabinet-makers than you probably could make just as much money. It is believed that no more than seven were made.
