Antiques Roadshow: Hartford, Conn. - Hour Three

Airs Monday, October 14, 2013 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Hartford, Connecticut, this guest wows appraiser Kathleen Guzman with a signed watercolor by Katharine Hepburn. A gift to the guest from Hepburn when she performed at the American Shakespeare Theater in Stratford, Connecticut, the charming painting's creator and original signature boost its value to $15,000 to $20,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. Mark L. Walberg hosts.

In Hartford, Connecticut, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW finds a sign of the times — actually a whole collection of antique inn and tavern signs — at the Connecticut Historical Society.

Appraisal highlights include an heirloom early-19th-century Duncan Phyfe dressing table; a rare set of vintage jewelry by influential 20th-century designer Suzanne Belperron; and a watercolor signed by Katharine Hepburn — who gifted the owner with the piece when the actress was performing at the American Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, Connecticut — valued at $15,000 to $20,000.
