The most exciting news in the Antiques business coming out of New York’s Americana Week is the official launch of Leigh Keno’s new auction house. Keno Auctions will hold its inaugural sale on May 10, 2010 in Stanford, CT. Leigh, famed for his appearances on Antiques Road Show and Found uses his TV honed skills with video introductions to some of the key objects lined up on his site. They are rough, but give great background to the pieces available.

Highlights include the diminutive Chippendale drop leaf table (above), built by Newport, RI’s John Goddard in 1765.
