Miami (Episode 14)


Episode Info

Items appraised in Miami (Part 2 of three) include a Persian rug, a Tiffany lamp and collections of Norman Rockwell posters and Beatles 45-rpm records (the sleeves are worth more than the records). Then there are Chinese vases, purportedly from the 6th to 9th centuries, and a gold "lifetime pass" to American League baseball games issued to George M. Cohan in the 1910s. Says appraiser Simeon Lipman: "It's phenomenal." Also: host Dan Elias visits Vizcaya, farm-machine magnate James Deering's early 20th-century Biscayne Bay mansion. "It looks," exclaims Elias, "as if a royal family had lived there for hundreds of years."
