When one young boy turned up to Antiques Roadshow with an old painting he’d purchased for just $2, people presumably wrote his purchase off. However, he was confident in his discovery, certain it was worth $150. And much to his delight, it turned out the artwork was worth a lot more.
For two decades, PBS’ Antiques Roadshow had helped to uncover some of America’s most valuable collector’s items. From rare Chinese cups to important works of art, the show has wowed audiences with astonishing appraisals of valuables worth up to $1.5 million.
