Program Description

Dan Elias and the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW crew open the New Orleans, Louisiana, show with a visit to the Presbytere, where the Louisiana State Museum pays homage to Mardi Gras. At the Morial Convention Center, the "bon temps roulez" all over the place. Among the diverse items brought for appraisal are a pair of exquisite Lalique sculptures, a carved wooden medallion, or "gang board," from the Civil War-era frigate Cincinnati, and an unusual decorative ceramic pot—made by a New Orleans art pottery club—valued at $15,000 to $20,000.
