Storyline

Appraisers of antiques travel with the show to various cities. Area citizens bring articles for appraisal and often relate the histories of these items. The appraisers then expand on what is known about the treasures, sometimes exposing them as fakes, and they estimate the pieces' financial value. The show also includes tips for aspiring collectors of a wide range of items. Written by Carl J. Youngdahl <zomno@casbah.acns.nwu.edu>

Trivia

One of the show's most famous "big discoveries" was a Seymour mahogany card table, bought at a garage sale by a New Jersey retiree decades previous for $25. She later sold the table at Sotheby's through one of the men who appraised her table on the air, Leigh Keno, for over half a million dollars. See more »

User Reviews

 
Slightly better than the British version--though it's certainly not as original.
14 May 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I love the American version of "Antiques Roadshow" that is shown on PBS. It's very, very interesting and even my daughter loved it when she was a tiny kid. Why? Because the stories are so interesting and the appraisals so enlightening. Think about it--folks bring in their knickknacks and treasures to discover if they are actually worth something--and that's most of what the show is all about other than a visit in each episode to a museum or collection for a short interlude in the middle of the show.

Although the British first came up with "Antiques Roadshow", I find that I prefer the American one (though I watch both). That's because, for me, much of the excitement of the show is watching the reactions on the public when they get their appraisals--and the British reactions are, in general, much more muted.
