Auctioneer Leigh Keno with the Salem, Mass., card table, $347,200 ($50/100,000), that is attributed to Boston's foremost Federal cabinetmaker, Thomas Seymour. The painted decoration is thought to be by Joshua Holden working in the John Ritto Penniman shop. The table is from a suite of furniture that includes four chairs, one at Winterthur and one on loan to the New York State Museum. Inscribed "Eleanor Maria Doane 1841,” the Hamblin-Prior school portrait soared to $142,600 ($25/35,000).

This carved, joined and painted oak chest was discovered in an upstate New York house not far from where auctioneer Leigh Keno grew up. Attributed to the Deacon John Moore shop tradition of Windsor, Conn., it was made between 1675 and 1690. Estimated at $100/250,000, it sold by phone for $632,400.
