Behind the Scenes in Kansas City
Between indulgent meals of KC's famous BBQ, ROADSHOW got its fill of mouthwatering treasures at the Kansas City event on August 10, 2013. Get a taste of the action! View the slideshow.
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 an 1891 Kansas City Fire Chief presentation badge made by the fine jeweler Mermod & Jaccard and given to Kansas City Fire Chief George Hale at the turn of the 20th-century; a bold 1796 Chinese bronze censer that was recently found on the floor of a local antique mall and is now valued at $8,000 to $12,000; and a pristine 1965 Roy Lichtenstein screen print that was bought by the owner’s parents at a Kansas City department store in the mid-1960s and is now appraised for $300,000.
