Back at the Tampa Convention Center, appraisers juggle an array of treasures, including a 1750s classic black walnut Philadelphia dressing table; a 1900s Tabriz carpet woven in the classical style of the late 16th and early 17th centuries; and a painting by acclaimed 19th-century marine artist James E. Buttersworth that could draw $80,000 to $100,000 at auction.
