This "Antiques Roadshow" special edition puts family folklore to the test. Did that refinished chair once seat royalty? Did a tall tale get passed down with a tall chest? “Relative Riches” demonstrates the proof is in the provenance.
Highlights include a questionable 1815 Kentucky corner cupboard that might have more value as firewood than furniture; a model 1849 Colt pocket revolver reportedly fired during Abraham Lincoln’s assassination; and a ruby and diamond bracelet that family legend attributes to Marie Antoinette.
