Antiques Roadshow

Kansas City, Missouri, Part 2 (#711)

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW continues its stay in Kansas City, Missouri, and host Dan Elias relates the story of the "Steamship Arabia, a legendary casualty of the treacherous Missouri River in 1856," and a salvage triumph in 1987. Retrieved, not from the depths of the Missouri's muddy waters, but half a mile from the river under 50 feet of dirt. At the Kansas City Convention Center, appraisers have an easier time spotting treasures, including: a carte-de-visite album from 1860 featuring photographs of Civil War generals, Sojourner Truth, and other notables of that era; a beautifully hand painted and gilded eighteenth century Sevres box, and a colorful Czechoslovakian art glass chandelier made in the period between World War I and World War II, estimated to be worth $5,000 to $6,000.
