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.
"Vintage Hartford" - Fifteen years passed before ANTIQUES ROADSHOW visited Hartford again, and some of the values of the items appraised have changed dramatically — some for the better, and some for the worse.
Appraisal: Violin and Pfretzschner Bow
A 1915 Coca-Cola® jigsaw puzzle and an Emancipation Announcement print both gained value since 1998, but the big winner is a Tiffany aquamarine glass vase, which was originally appraised at $30,000 to $40,000 and is now valued between $90,000 and $100,000.
