Antiques Roadshow: Pittsburgh, Pa. - Hour One

Airs Monday, February 17, 2014 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Pittsburgh, Pa., veteran Asian arts expert Lark Mason appraises a 17th-century Chinese carved rhinoceros horn cup. Originally purchased for $1 by the owner’s husband at a flea market, Mason assigns a much more substantial value at $350,000-$450,000.

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.

"Pittsburgh, Pa." (Hour One) - In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Alasdair Nichol head to the Andy Warhol Museum to check out some early works of the Pittsburgh native from his pre-Factory days—eclectic illustrations that garner ample attention from today's collectors.
