"Billings, MT, Pt. 2" featured on Antiques Roadshow on Monday, August 26th at 7 pm

Surrounded by the spectacular scenery of a Montana ranch, host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser John Sollo explore the works of Thomas Molesworth, a significant figure in the popularization of rustic, Western-style furnishings. Highlights include a 19th-century Japanese suit of armor; an 1874 oil painting by noted Swiss artist Luigi Rossi; and a unique housewarming gift — a circa 1825 Parisian gilt bronze plateau (serving tray) valued at $50,000 to $70,000.

"Billings, MT, Pt. 2" on Antiques Roadshow airs on Monday, August 26th at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.
