Mobile, Al - Part 1

Season 11, Episode 10 of 20

In Mobile, Alabama, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark Walberg and appraiser David Rago visit the Mobile Museum of Art. The museum has been the temporary home and haven to a collection of George Ohr pottery rescued from the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, Mississippi, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. At the Mobile Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center, there's a whirlwind of great finds, including a lap desk given to Martha Washington's granddaughter by the Marquis de Lafayette; a watch once belonging to baseball great Leroy "Satchel" Paige, bought at a pawnshop for $25; and a strikingly beautiful vase - created by legendary ceramicist George Ohr and brought to ROADSHOW by one of Ohr's great grandchildren - valued at $10,000 to $15,000.
