Appraisal: 1862 Minton Majolica Fountain

"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

Watch Jeffrey Holmes's appraisal of a violin and Pfretzschner bow, in Vintage Hartford.

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.
