In Des Moines, Iowa, "Antiques Roadshow" host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Francis Wahlgren explore an impressive extra-illustrated book set based on a biography of Charles Dickens at Salisbury House and Gardens, the estate of 1920s cosmetics tycoon Carl Weeks.
Highlights include: a collection of late 1950s and 1960s Lucy M. Lewis Acoma Pueblo pottery; an 1820 Russian Lukutin snuff box inscribed with the imperial arms of the Romanov dynasty; and an extremely rare 1623 Shakespeare First Folio, valued at $40,000 to $50,000.
