Program Description

1107, 2/12/2007: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark Walberg gets a taste of Tucson, Arizona, history from the seat of an antique buggy, part of the impressive stable of horse-drawn conveyances housed at the Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum and proudly mobilized for the annual Tucson Rodeo Parade. At the Tucson Convention Center, it's a pageant of prized possessions, including two Picasso-designed vases bought in France; a court affidavit submitted by Jimmy Carter to the state of Maine on the eve of the 1976 election appealing their decision to list him on the ballot as James Earl Carter; and an ornate saddle — purchased for the owner as a child and ridden just once when she competed for the title of Coolidge Cotton Days Rodeo Queen in Coolidge, Arizona — a cinch to bring $6,000 to $8,000.

1108, 2/19/2007: In Tucson, Arizona, host Mark Walberg and appraiser Rosalie Sayyah are at the picturesque Arizona Inn for a conversation about traditional American Indian jewelry of the Southwest. ROADSHOW experts at the Tucson Convention Center continue their own tradition of discovering hidden treasure, including a vibrant 19th-century Navajo chief's blanket; a silver brooch made in the 1940s by then struggling sculptor Jose DeRivero, whose works now grace the most noted museums and galleries; and a 1776 French harp, bought for a modest sum at an estate sale and identified as the work of Jean-Henri Naderman — harpmaker to such aristocrats as Marie Antoinette — that commands an estimated value of $60,000.

At the Tucson Convention Center, crowds brave the 104 degree heat to bring in some cool objects, including a rare collection of 1956 Olympics memorabilia saved by the owner's father, trainer for the gold medal-winning American basketball team that included Bill Russell; a striking collection of World War II American propaganda posters; and a trio of paintings by acclaimed 20th-century French "outsider" artist Gaston Chaissac, given an auction estimate of $50,000-$100,000.
