Granny’s Heirloom Furniture Gaining In Value

When we were redistributing the furniture and effects from an ancient relative’s bungalow recently, the grandchildren were invited to take the main items.  One had the gorgeous danish inspired dining set from 1961 which still has the critically important blue serial number labels atached to each item.   Another less astutue candidate somewhat ungraciously agreed to offload the beds and dressing tables.  I notice he’s still using them in his newly bought marital home.   The other grandchild put in an early bid for the g-plan sideboard.  Apparently she’d ben advised by her papa that this would be a winner later on.  Fair enough.  None of them seemed particularly grateful for their bounty at the time but they have all been carefully scanning the well known auction sites to see how their newly found gains might fare if put on the market.  Very well is the resounding answer.  Especially the danish dining set, complete with original seat cushions and very little damage. . . . .
