"Vintage Hartford" - Fifteen years have passed since ANTIQUES ROADSHOW visited Hartford, and some of the values of the items appraised have changed dramatically — some for the better, and some for the worse.
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.
