Understanding Our Appraisals
Useful tips to keep in mind when watching ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.
At the Midwest Airlines Center, collectors are thirsty for information about such treasures as a 1952 Fender Esquire guitar, prized by country and western musicians; a late 19th-century child's sled in the shape of a swan, considered a rare piece of American folk sculpture; and a cliffhanger: an 18th-century desk and bookcase passed down to the owner from his great-grandfather, a former governor of Connecticut, that could be worth as much as $250,000 - or $20,000 if the two pieces are determined to be "married." All appraisals from this episode are available for online viewing.
