A sleeper table
If the price of those two Deming & Bulkley card tables at Sotheby's on Nov. 19 is too steep, consider lot 660, a Boston pier table, ca. 1815. Though its presale estimate is $15,000-25,000, this table with paw feet is in superb condition and could reach $50,000 or more, says Sotheby's specialist John Nye.
