Behind the Scenes in Baton Rouge
Iconic local collectibles and international masterpieces made their way to the appraisal tables in Baton Rouge on July 27, 2013. ROADSHOW sure got a taste for Louisiana pride in the state capitol! View the photos
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.
Highlights include a French Art Deco diamond and platinum ring, ca. 1930, purchased at auction for $30 as cubic zirconia and now valued at $25,000 to $35,000; a copy of the book "The History of Magic," with an inscription from the owner’s old college roommate — Jim Morrison of The Doors; and four Rembrandt and James McNeill Whistler etchings that were collected by the guest’s father from around 1940 to 1960 and are appraised for $100,000.
