Segment: Lark Mason — 18th-Century Korean Painted Silk Panel

Clip: Season 23 Episode 24 | 4m 34s | Video has closed captioning.

At the 2005 Bismarck event, Asian Arts appraiser Lark Mason met Dee, the owner of a tattered but magnificent silk court screen, several hundred years old and apparently of Chinese origin. Dee said she’d come close to throwing it out, but eventually enlisted Mason’s help to sell it at auction. An auction that would wind up leaving Dee elated, and Mason and his colleagues in shock!
