Curt Doussett and Kinga Philipps are in Milwaukee, Wis., at the Milwaukee Public Museum, and the Chedderheads here believe they have Americas next lost treasure. Kinga is most excited about 15-foot-wide mosaics of Christopher Columbus made especially for the 1893 Worlds Fair and done in the famous Venetian Murano glass. Lost for more than 60 years, the mosaics may not win the prize now but could be worth over a million dollars!
