Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Orlando, Florida, appraiser Todd Weyman of Swann Galleries inspects a collection of rare etchings and dry points by James McNeill Whistler, including the scarce “The Palaces in Brussels.” These delicate prints, many signed by the artist, could draw $130,000 to $190,000 at auction.

As "Antiques Roadshow" arrives in Orlando, Florida, host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Arlie Sulka venture to neighboring Winter Park and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, home to a breathtaking collection of works by Louis Comfort Tiffany. At the Orange County Convention Center, "Roadshow" experts uncover a new cache of treasures, including a rare photo signed by the entire cast of the hit TV series "Bonanza"; a beautiful sterling silver Tiffany vase; and a stunning collection of scarce and delicate etchings and dry points by James McNeill Whistler, with a combined value of $130,000 to $190,000.

First Place in the Antiques Roadshow Top Ten Items

Above: From the 2010 season premiere of the U.S. "Antiques Roadshow," on PBS. It is the highest appraisal value ever given on the show. This 18th-Century Qianlong Jade Collection from the 18th century Qing Dynasty was acquired between the late 1930's and through the 1940s, by her father while he was serving in the military as a liaison. The guest recalls that as a child, she "heard that some of them had imperial seals," and was curious to learn more. What a surprise it was, to learn that they were the most valuable items to ever be shown on the North American syndication of the show. Original air date: January 4th, 2010 Appraiser: James Callahan Appraised on: June 27th, 2009 (in Raleigh, North Carolina)
