AR says "Aloha!" to its 11th season with a voyage to sunny Honolulu, Hawaii. Host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Nancy Druckman of Sotheby's explore the longstanding tradition of Hawaiian quilting by visiting the stunning collection at the Queen Emma Summer Palace and sitting in on a quilting class at the 'Iolani Palace. At the Hawai'i Convention Center, appraisers stitch together a vivid portrait of the past when they discover such treasures as an ancient Hawaiian Omeke poi bowl; an Atomic Ray water pistol, purchased by the owner at a Hawaiian swap meet for $20; and an 1886 painting of Hawaiian Princess Kaiulani sitting beneath her famous banyon tree in Waikiki. This lovely depiction by English artist Robert C. Barnfield is valued at $30,000.
