Relative Riches (#1319H) Duration: 55:35 STEREO TVG

This special edition puts family folklore to the test. Did that refinished chair once seat royalty? Did a tall tale get passed down with a tall chest? "Relative Riches" demonstrates the proof is in the provenance. Highlights include a bow and quiver purported to have been made and signed by Chief Geronimo; a carved emerald and ruby ring that would benefit from a bill of sale; and a questionable 1815 Kentucky corner cupboard that might have more value as firewood than furniture.
