Host Dan Elias welcomes ANTIQUES ROADSHOW viewers to Seattle, Washington, from architect Frank Gehry's Experience Music Project — a totally interactive museum — before taking off on a whirlwind tour of the city center. Appraisers at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center discover an array of fascinating objects, including a mid-18th-century French Rococo double snuffbox, an elegant mid-19th-century enameled pocket watch in perfect condition with jewels intact, and a crazy quilt with roots in the great Seattle fire of 1889, estimated to be worth $10,000.
