Al Capone Furniture. Al Capones Treasures Arlington Heights Illinois. A Chicago auction house will conduct the bang-bang type April 15 when it sells some 60 items that belonged to mobster Al Capone including Capones bed a stuffed marlin Capone.
It was unveiled today with more modest historically accurate furniture and amenities. This beautiful dresser was made by a company based out of Chicago called Peck and Hills Furniture Company. TIL Al Capone set up an empty storefront with a bookshelf a broken piano and old tables chairs to look like an antique store.
In the end Mae Capone died on April 16 1986 in a nursing home in Hollywood Florida.
She covered the living room furniture with sheets and refused to serve any meals in the dining room. The store could be a parody of Al Capone who was in fact the owner of a furniture store and used it as a smokescreen for his illegal activities. Yep this is the real stuff from Capones Palm Island estate in Florida where he fished and smoked his cigars after his prison term and where he died in 1947 when he was only 48. Al Capones men would unload smuggled liquor from Canada that seaplanes would deliver to the Hideouts private lake.
