Behind the Scenes in Minneapolis, Minnesota
View photos from ROADSHOW's visit to Minneapolis, Minn. on Saturday, July 9, 2011.
In Minneapolis, host Mark L. Walberg joins appraiser Sebastian Clarke at the American Swedish Institute to discuss Mora clocks, beautiful tall case timekeepers cherished by many Swedish-Americans who immigrated to the U.S. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Highlights include a questionable George Elmslie chair that, if authentic, could fetch $50,000; a 1900 McKinley-Roosevelt poster discovered at a flea market; and a 1976 fancy intense yellow diamond ring, valued at $140,000-$160,000.
