    Anyone know antique furniture?


    I have 4 mahogany chairs that came out of the Mt. Washington Hotel some years ago, part of the the furnishings built expressly for the Bretton Woods Conference of 1944. They have been coated in latex paint, so they would need stripping and re-finishing, the bottoms are there, just need re-covering, dark green velvet per the antiques picker I got them from in 1985 (although they look like leather coverings in the pic below). They are complete and not broken. One of those projects that I've been meaning to get to ... since 1985.

    Assuming I don't get to them in the next 30 years, how would I go about selling them, not giving them away? And how to go about getting an appraisal.

    Here's a pic from the Web of some gents at the conference, seated in the very chairs:

    Don't believe everything you think.
