New Orleans


Episode Info

Part 1 (of three). Items appraised in New Orleans range from a 1654 Rembrandt etching to an early 20th-century guidebook to New Orleans' red-light district, Storyville. And there's a pair of 1920s Lalique glass figures, which put a smile on their owner's face. Their value? "Much higher than I would have thought," he says. "More in line with what I would like." Also: host Dan Elias offers a thumbnail Mardi Gras history at the Louisiana State Museum's Presbytere and surveys the African-art collection at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
