Antiques Roadshow Visits Iowa on NET Television

With 20 brand new episodes in 2011, “Antiques Roadshow” celebrates its Crystal Anniversary—a 15-year romance with America’s eclectic treasures and the history that surrounds them. Host Mark L. Walberg travels to Iowa in February to continue the journey through America’s attics and basements.



On three consecutive Mondays in February, “Antiques Roadshow” will visit Des Moines to showcase a collection of sand bottles; a late-Victorian gold vest chain and fob; a pair of 1963 and 1966 Green Bay Packers signed footballs; and a rare collection of promotional movie memorabilia from Hollywood’s Golden Age valued at $25,000 to $28,000.

Walberg is joined by appraiser Wes Cowan at the Iowa State Museum in Des Moines, to look at its collection of highly-prized sand bottles by 19th-century Iowa folk artist Andrew Clemens. A 19th century painting by Emile Munier, falsely thought by the owner to be a print, is actually valued at $100,000 to $150,000.

“Antiques Roadshow” episodes from Des Moines air Feb. 14, 21 and 28 at 7 p.m. CT on NET1 and NET-HD. The three Des Moines episodes repeat the following Thursdays at 8 p.m. CT and Sundays at 5 p.m. CT. NET 1 and NET-HD are part of NET Television, a service of NET.
