Victorian specialty clocks: a green enameled “umbrella” clock and a solid gold miniature with an erotic engraving. We explore antique tables from Baltimore’s premiere furniture-makers – the Potthast Company, and a man’s diamond ring is worth thousands. There’s a tiny 19th Hebrew Bible, and we close with Andrew Ellicott’s compass, surveyor of Maryland’s historic Ellicott City.
