"Louisville, Ky." (Hour Three) - Centuries before texting, girls were expressing themselves via embroidered samplers, as appraiser Nancy Druckman shows ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg at the Embroiderer’s Guild of America in Louisville, Kentucky.
Highlights include a rare, circa 1910 Dirk Van Erp lamp, originally bought for about $100; an exceptionally well-preserved 1876 portrait Jumeau doll with all original parts, except her hair; and a fortunate Kentucky corner cupboard — at one time destined to be burned and thrown away — made of locally grown wood and valued at $8,500.
