John Sollo

At John Sollo’s first-ever ROADSHOW event he met a darling guest named Nancy and discovered an exotic and extremely rare mahogany chair lived for many years — unloved and unused — in Nancy’s mother’s attic. When to Nancy’s astonishment Sollo appraised it for $80,000 to $120,000, they each nearly needed to sit down. Here, join both of them again as they reunite to chat about their initial 2006 meeting in Philadelphia, and Nancy shares the bittersweet story of what happened after that.
