Antiques Roadshow: Richmond, Virginia, Part 2
Saturday, May 24 at 9:00 p.m.
The Roadshow's stop in Virginia’s capital city continues with some fabulous finds.
Host Mark L. Walberg attempts to stump appraiser Sebastian Clarke on Federal-era materials at the Wilton House Museum.
Other program highlights include a 1765 Thomas Pitts silver epergne that was previously used to hold flowers instead of desserts; a Leveille-Rousseau perfume bottle, ca. 1890, bought at a Virginia flea market for around $20 and now appraised at between $6,000 and $8,000; and a Tiffany & Co. brooch, ca. 1937, found in the spare-button envelope of a dry cleaning business!
