Appraisal Value Updates

Can you teach an old dog new tricks? ROADSHOW checks in with appraisers to see which "Cats & Dogs" items still keep up with the pack.

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.

"Cats & Dogs" - Whether it’s a ceramic dog or a painted cat, this special is chock full of appraisals featuring felines and canines — in sculpture, on canvas and in many other forms. Take a look at an original “Hush Puppy” mascot, dog portraits and one “naughty cat” bronze.
