"Grand Rapids, Mich." (Hour Three) - ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s stop in Grand Rapids includes a detour to the Holland Museum in Holland, Michigan — and a nod to Western Michigan’s Dutch roots — for a look at Delft tiles through the centuries.

Highlights include a rare, Stickley music cabinet designed by Harvey Ellis; a painting by French artist Édouard Cortès that’s authenticated in a very enlightening way; and a pair of prop spears used in the 1939 classic film "The Wizard of Oz," estimated to be worth $30,000.

This episode originally aired in 2009.
