Program Description

1113, 4/16/2007: In Salt Lake City, Utah, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg takes the plunge down Olympic Park's bobsled run to get in the zone for a look at Olympics collectibles with appraiser Philip Weiss. At the Salt Palace Convention Center, ROADSHOW experts favorably judge such outstanding finds as a 1920s to 1930s-era folk art quilt depicting scenes from Mormon history; a valuable Utah landscape painting by 20th-century Swedish American artist Birger Sandzen; and a mid-19th-century archive of materials documenting the career of Philip Margetts, considered the first prominent Mormon actor — brought in by his great granddaughter and valued at $100,000 to $150,000.

1114, 4/23/2007: In Salt Lake City, Utah, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg is joined by ROADSHOW appraisers Leigh and Leslie Keno for a tour of what may be the largest antique furniture store in America: Euro Treasure Warehouse, with some 40,000 pieces the owner had shipped from Europe. At the Salt Palace Convention Center, ROADSHOW appraisers discover treasures with local roots, including a writing desk made by the owner's great grandfather, Robert Nell, one of the original Mormon pioneers; a mid-19th-century shotgun passed down from the owner's great-great-grandfather, an employee of the Overland Mail Company stagecoach service; and an extremely rare, 1851 first edition copy of The Pearl of Great Price — the third volume of Mormon scripture — inherited from the owner's grandfather and valued at $45,000 to $55,000.

Walberg to the world of the rock hound and the market in minerals. At the Salt Palace Convention Center, ROADSHOW appraisers hit a mother lode of precious objects, including a set of clubs once owned by Utah golf legend George "Gix" Von Elm, who won the U.S. Open Amateur in 1926; a set of beautiful 18th-century Chinese white jade carvings; and a pair of rare documents: a Mormon advertisement on textile and a copy of Brigham Young's Invasion Proclamation — both issued in 1857, during hostilities between the Mormons in Utah and the U.S. government — valued at $10,000 to $15,000.
