Ever wonder where that antique chair really came from or who first owned the intricate bronze chandelier hanging over Mom's dining table? For this video, Curbed sent Roxanne Elizabeth Usleman—normally the Vintage Store Psychic for our sister site, Racked—to explore the wares at David Duncan Antiques, a mainstay of the NYC antiques scene since 1989. Over the course of an afternoon, Usleman honed in on pieces with incredible provenance, including those that once belonged to decorating legend Elsie de Wolfe and philanthropist Bunny Mellon. Watch the psychic at work—and working her magic on a rather debonair Duncan—above.
