Antiques Roadshow: Atlanta, Part 1
Monday, February 8 at 9:00 p.m.
The Roadshow visits the spectacular marine life of the Georgia Aquarium.
At the Aquarium, host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser David Lackey examine some 19th-century examples of the shockingly realistic aquatic, amphibious and reptilian-themed plates and vases known as Palissy ware. Other program highlights include a decorative egg with a Faberge mark, purchased for $15,000, that may not be all that it seems; and a 1787 land grant signed by Benjamin Franklin.
