Antiques Roadshow: Raleigh, NC - Hour Two

Airs Monday, January 11, 2010 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Raleigh, North Carolina, this guest is delighted to learn that his watercolor painting is an original piece, called the “Trammel,” by noted realist painter Andrew Wyeth. Bought in 1985, the painting has greatly appreciated over the last few decades — appraiser Nan Chisholm assigns the piece a realistic insurance value of $450,000.

"Antiques Roadshow" visits the North Carolina Museum of History with appraiser J. Michael Flanigan to look at the work of Thomas Day, a free man of color who became the most famous North Carolina furniture maker of the 19th century. Highlights include a circa 1800 eastern North Carolina bottle case on stand; an 1812 needlework sampler; and a 1985 Andrew Wyeth watercolor, whose owner benefited from a tug-of-war between art dealers, valued at $450,000.
