Antiques Roadshow: Junk In The Trunk

Airs December 16, 2013 at 8 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At "Antiques Roadshow" in Des Moines, Iowa, this guest shows off his collection of Iowa native Grant Wood artwork and personal effects. Inherited from Wood’s aunt, the assortment includes a drawing and lithograph, as well as a trunk containing some of the iconic American artist’s possessions. Thrilled by the discovery, appraiser David Weiss offered an evaluation of $14,000 to $22,000.

Just when you thought ANTIQUES ROADSHOW couldn’t possibly have more great discoveries to share, comes this special edition. “Junk in the Trunk” is a new episode of never-before-seen appraisals from ROADSHOW’S 2011 season.

App for iPhone and iPad

Join the fun as you test your appraisal skills on actual antiques from across the USA. The app incorporates only real antiques, photos, item histories and values, as appraised on the TV series. Your purchase supports PBS and ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.

Experts Library

No doubt about it, our experts are extremely knowledgeable. But they also have a secret weapon — a backstage library of reference materials covering an abundance of topics from all areas of the antiques and collectibles world. In case you'd like to get your hands on some of these tools of the trade, we've created a full listing organized by category.

Highlights include one of a set of six inherited chairs, made 50 years ago by a furniture designer who also did commissions for Aristotle Onassis; a rare and extensive collection of WWII prison camp materials that posthumously established a glider pilot’s eligibility for a medal from the U.S. Department of Defense; and a drawing and lithograph by iconic American artist Grant Wood, as well as a trunk containing some of his possessions, acquired by the owner from Wood’s aunt and valued at $14,000 to $22,000.
