Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Baltimore, Maryland, this woman presents a violin and bow her husband acquired from a local violin shop in Washington, DC. Appraiser Fred Oster of Vintage Instruments, Inc. recognizes the instrument’s unique construction and materials as the work of Nicolas Lupot. The accompanying bow is identified as a 19th-century piece by Dominique Peccatte, one of the most influential bow makers in history. Together, violin and bow make beautiful music to the tune of $140,000 and $20,000 respectively.

"Antiques Roadshow" caps its sojourn in Baltimore, Maryland, at Geppi's Entertainment Museum, where appraiser Phil Weiss gives host Mark L. Walberg a collector's eye view of comic strip art. At the Baltimore Convention Center, "Roadshow" draws a wide array of objects, including a magnificent bench crafted by master woodworker George Nakashima; a unique two-sided painting by B.J.O. Nordfelt; and a rare violin made in 1798 by renowned French violinmaker Nicolas Lupot, accompanied by a bow crafted in the style of Dominique Peccatte, one of the most influential bow makers in history. Together, violin and bow make beautiful music, to the tune of $140,000 and $20,000 respectively.
