In Hartford, Connecticut, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW finds a sign of the times — actually a whole collection of antique inn and tavern signs — at the Connecticut Historical Society.

Appraisal highlights include an heirloom early-19th-century Duncan Phyfe dressing table; a rare set of vintage jewelry by influential 20th-century designer Suzanne Belperron; and a watercolor signed by Katharine Hepburn — who gifted the owner with the piece when the actress was performing at the American Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, Connecticut — valued at $15,000 to $20,000.
