Part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt, WGBH's Antiques Roadshow is the highest-rated series on PBS. Watch as auction house experts and independent dealers offer free appraisals of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains, and items salvaged from attics and basements, revealing the fascinating story — and, sometimes, surprising value — of each object.
Antiques Roadshow: "Junk in the Trunk 4"
Antiques Roadshow has more appraisals than ever to share from the eight cities it visited during its newly expanded Season 18 tour. The first hour of “Junk in the Trunk 4” is an all new episode with appraisals from Roadshow's 2014 season, including a Steiff Pushmi-Pullyu Doctor Dolittle character, ca. 1967, acquired at a PBS auction in 1968; a Pablo Picasso linocut, ca. 1950, discovered in a basement; and a pair of Italian carved door panels, ca. 1550, purchased at an estate sale for $500 and now valued at $20,000 to $30,000.
