Antiques Roadshow: Louisville, Part 3
Monday, June 17 at 9:00 p.m.
Centuries before texting, girls were expressing themselves via embroidered samplers, as appraiser Nancy Druckman shows host Mark L. Walberg at the Embroiderer’s Guild of America in Louisville, Kentucky.
Highlights include a rare, circa 1910 Dirk Van Erp lamp, originally bought for about $100; an exceptionally well-preserved 1876 portrait Jumeau doll with all original parts, except her hair; and a fortunate Kentucky corner cupboard — at one time destined to be burned and thrown away — made of locally grown wood and valued at $8,500.
