"Atlanta, Ga." (Hour One) - In this episode, surrounded by the spectacular marine life of the Georgia Aquarium, host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser David Lackey examine some 19th-century examples of the shockingly realistic aquatic, amphibious and reptilian-themed plates and vases known as Palissy ware. Highlights include a decorative egg with a Faberge mark, purchased for $15,000, that may not be all that it seems; a 1787 land grant signed by Benjamin Franklin; and a New York Chippendale corner chair, circa 1760, purchased as part of a large collection for $750-$800, but actually valued between $250,000-$300,000.
