Antiques Roadshow: Biloxi, Miss. - Hour Two

Airs Monday, July 29, 2013 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event in Biloxi, Mississippi, this guest (right) brings in a beautifully preserved 1811 silk-on-silk embroidery created by her great-great-great grandmother. Made in Philadelphia and taken from an English print of Lady Grace, appraiser Beth Szescila estimates the beautiful heirloom embroidery could be insured for $40,000 to $50,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. Mark L. Walberg hosts.
