Antiques Roadshow: Dallas, Texas - Hour One

Airs Monday, March 28, 2011 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Dallas, Texas, the owner is left speechless after discovering her piece of artwork, purchased by her great-great-great-grandfather, is an 1847 oil painting by noted 19th-century artist James Henry Beard. Titled "The Illustrious Guest," the painting cleverly depicts famous American statesman Henry Clay as a guest at a tavern. Delighted appraiser Alan Fausel of Bonhams gives the painting an estimable auction value of $300,000 to $500,000.
