See a Porfirio Salinas oil painting on Antiques Roadshow

Feb 21, 2014

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is in the Red Stick city, as host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Christopher Mitchell head to Port Hudson to discuss a rare Civil War hand grenade. Highlights include an early 19th-century Louisiana work table that was stored in a barn for several decades; a collection of insightful Civil War Confederate letters that were found in the wall of a torn down Mississippi house; and a Porfirio Salinas oil, ca. 1935, in its original frame, that was bought by the owner’s grandmother for $100 in 1935 and is now valued at $45,000.

Antiques Roadshow airs on Mondays at 7 pm and 11 pm on channel 3 and at 7 pm and 12 midnight on channel 3-1.
