This week’s antiques range the globe. An 18th Century embroidery celebrating George Washington (worth thousands) is a sharp contrast to a Taoist burial idol from China. One appraiser admires a rare Art Nouveau purse -- with a secret; another waxes nostalgic over a baseball poster autographed by dozens of Hall of Famers. Visit to the MD Historic Society’s War of 1812 exhibit.
