Antiques Roadshow

Kansas City, Missouri, Part 1 (#710)

When ANTIQUES ROADSHOW makes a stop in Kansas City, Missouri, host Dan Elias reveals how it went from cow town to "Paris of the Plains," with almost as many fountains as Rome and Swopes Park's two thousand acres of formal gardens and winding boulevards. Appraisers at the Kansas City Convention Center encounter a remarkable array of objects, including a vase made for the Imperial Household of China between 1736 and 1795, a wild collection of memorabilia - including a tee shirt with bullet holes - documenting the life and antics of beat generation writer William Burroughs, and an 1880s Pennsylvania poplar dry sink with fantastic grain painted finish, estimated to be worth $ 8,000.
