Program Description

307: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW crowds in Rochester, New York, offer up antique toys, fine furniture and other classic, household items. Host Chris Jussel visits the George Eastman House, the former home of one of Rochester's most prominent citizens. Eastman revolutionized the world of photography and made it accessible to everyone with the invention of the first Kodak camera. Collectors from across the state converge on the Riverside Convention Center with a number of unusual items, including a nine-foot-tall fireplace mantel valued at $15,000 to $20,000 and an ornate cane rack that appraisers believe was carved from one piece of elm.

308: In Rochester, New York, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW experts look at furniture, decorative items, jewelry and paintings. Host Chris Jussel uses the Susan B. Anthony House as a backdrop for a lesson in women's history. Although Anthony did not live to see it, this Rochester native's work helped women win the right to vote with the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. At the Riverside Convention Center, appraisers share collectors' excitement as they uncover a portrait valued at $18,000 to $20,000 and a rare,Shirvan rug that the owner inherited from his former college landlady.
