Above: A stunning 1946 oil painting by Rockwell Kent. The painting was inherited from the owners’ grandmother, who purchased it the year it was painted. The owners also inherited a letter from Kent to their grandmother.Without the accompanying letter, the painting would be worth $100,000-$150,000. However, with the letter, appraiser Alan Fausel values the two items between $150,000-$250,000.

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.
