Slideshow: Nakashima Table Sketch
In this slideshow, get an up-close look at a table personally designed by George Nakashima in 1967.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW'S visit to Hartford includes a stop at the American Clock and Watch Museum in Bristol, Connecticut, to look at time pieces that reflect Connecticut’s rich history of clock manufacturing.
Highlights include a custom-made table purchased over 40 years ago from George Nakashima; a rare pre-WWI German toy wagon with its even more rare original box; and a highly-prized bronze statue of a medieval Russian warrior, by Russian artist Eugene Lanceray, valued at $120,000 to $130,000.
