Behind the Scenes in San Antonio, Texas
View photos from "Roadshow's" visit to San Antonio, Texas on July 14, 2007.
In San Antonio, "Antiques Roadshow" host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Beth Szecila visit the Witte Museum’s collection of horn furniture, a craft popularized in 19th-century America by Texas maker Wenzel Friedrich.
Highlights include: a controversial silver statue of St. Catherine that could be a fabulously valuable medieval masterpiece — or a 17th-century copy; an early 19th-century heirloom needlepoint sampler from a Newport, Rhode Island, ancestor; and a massive desk and bookcase, made in the mid-19th-century German-Texan tradition, valued at $7,000 to $10,000.
