"Billings, Mont." (Hour Two) - Surrounded by the spectacular scenery of a Montana ranch, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser John Sollo explore the works of Thomas Molesworth, a significant figure in the popularization of rustic, Western-style furnishings.
Highlights from Billings, Montana include a 19th-century Japanese suit of armor; an 1874 oil painting by noted Swiss artist Luigi Rossi; and a unique housewarming gift — a circa 1825 Parisian gilt bronze plateau (serving tray) valued at $50,000 to $70,000.
