- Program Description
913, 4/18/2005: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW stops to smell "The City of Roses," Portland, Oregon. While lingering at the Oregon Convention Center, appraisers sniff out some truly arresting artifacts like a third-grader's rare, circa 1820 Sunderland figurines representing the seasons; an original radio transcript from the naval base on Oahu, Hawaii, detailing the events of the invasion of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941; and an enormous 1896 lithograph poster depicting frolicking bathers at the legendary Sutro Baths of San Francisco, valued at an equally enormous $15,000 to $20,000.
914, 4/25/2005: Portland, Oregon's largest city and home to the world's smallest park (Mill Ends Park, which measures only two feet across), welcomes ANTIQUES ROADSHOW back for another hour of big surprises. At the Oregon Convention Center, appraisers cultivate a garden of goodies, including a bronze Japanese altar set elaborately decorated with mythical creatures from the Taisho period, circa 1915; a German artist's landscape sketchbook chronicling in rich detail his travels through the Alps around 1862; and a little girl's shoe, accompanied by documentation from 1928 showing the footwear once bore the autographs of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, with a value that could hit $500 to $700.
915, 5/2/2005: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW concludes its sojourn on the banks of the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon where appraisers at the Oregon Convention Center net a catch of fascinating objects, including a traditionally carved Hawaiian koa wood bowl so large it probably belonged to royalty — and is such a magnificent specimen of ancient craftsmanship, even the repaired cracks increase its value; a 1904 dog show trophy whose art nouveau hammered copper, silver and stag horn composition make it a very distinguished thrift store find; and an original print of the map that revolutionized our understanding of the American landscape — the Lewis and Clark report of 1814 — conservatively valued today at $45,000.
