Plot Synopsis

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW travels the country to capture tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-lost items salvaged from attics and basements, while expert appraisers reveal the fascinating truths and values about these finds. This series returned for its 18th season on Monday, January 6, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT on PBS (check local listings because day and time may vary). In the season opener, Walberg and appraiser Peter J. Shemonsky took a trip to the Egyptian Theatre in Boise, where they evaluated a first edition of the "Book of Mormon" that has been passed down through the guest's family since 1833; a 1955 Madoura plate designed by Picasso that previously hung above the stove, collecting grease; and one of the top finds of the season -- an 1858 oil painting by important Hudson River artist Sanford Robinson Gifford, valued at $300,000. PBS premiered the 19th season of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW on Monday, January 5, 2015 at 8pm (check local listings), as host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Eric Silver make a treasure-filled visit to New York City and its largest sports memorabilia find ever. They take a trip to the New-York Historical Society to discuss Frederic Auguste Bartholdi Statue of Liberty statuettes. Highlights include an unpublished Art Spiegelman book proposal, ca. 1974, that was positioned to become a sequel to his quotation book Whole Grains; a headboard from the set of The Godfather, Part II that was purchased for under $25; and an archive of rare photographic baseball cards with a handwritten letter from the 1871-1872 Boston Red Stockings, appraised at $1,000,000. Season 20 of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW premiered on Monday, January 4, 2016 at 8pm (check local listings). The season opener, "Spokane (Hour One)," celebrates the show's 20th anniversary with treasures like a 1919 Belmont Stakes trophy, 1963 "The Avengers" comics and two Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso oil paintings. Which find is worth $200,000 to $300,000? The twenty-first season of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW premiered on Monday, January 2, 2017 at 8pm on PBS (check local listings). Season 21 premieres with the first of three episodes from Fort Worth, Texas, where the show finds treasures like a rock & roll poster collection from around 1968, a Delaware Tribe beaded baldric and an Auguste Rodin "Eternal Spring" bronze that could have the highest value of the season. But is it authentic? Season 22 premiered on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 8pm on PBS (check local listings). In the season opener, "Harrisburg (Hour One)," ANTIQUES ROADSHOW makes its first visit to Harrisburg, where treasures include a Pennsylvania Dutch coffeepot, an 1892 H. F. Farny painting, and a Rene Lalique necklace. Which iteam is valued at $200,000-$300,000 during an emotional appraisal?
Season 23 of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW premiered on Monday, January 7, 2019 on PBS at 8pm (check local listings), with veteran television personality Mark L. Walberg returning as series host. The new season invites viewers onto the grounds of iconic destinations -- including a picturesque horse racing track steeped in tradition, a hotel favored by U.S Presidents and old Hollywood alike, a Gilded Age mansion celebrating the success of "the greatest show on Earth," and more -- while still experiencing the familiar treasure hunt that America has loved for generations.

The first 15 episodes of the new season include stops in these cities:

- In Rochester, Michigan, Detroit-area treasures are appraised at the historic estate of Matilda Dodge Wilson including a Willem Blaeu world map from around 1635, purchased at a second-hand shop for less than $20! Meadow Brook Hall episodes air January 7, 14, and 21.

- In Sarasota, Florida, there's no clowning around when it comes to show-stopping appraisals at Ca' d'Zan, the home of circus royalty John and Mable Ringling, including an 1866 Otto Georgi oil painting that leaves our appraiser speechless. Ca' d'Zan episodes will air January 28, Feburary 4 and 11.

- In San Diego, California, check into Hotel del Coronado for incredible items including a family table that was part of the 1959 "Kitchen Debate" between Richard Nixon and Nikita Khrushchev. Hotel del Coronado episodes will air Feburary 18 and 25, and April 1.

- In Tulsa, Oklahoma, ROADSHOW can't stop the rain at the Philbrook Museum of Art, but outstanding Oklahoma appraisals do include the first-ever "Yield" sign made around 1950 by the owner's father. Philbrook Museum episodes air April 8, 15 and 22.

- In Louisville, Kentucky, it's off to the races for first-place finds at Churchill Downs Racetrack, including a Picasso sketch and signed photograph that could be worth six figures. But is it authentic? Churchill Downs Racetrack episodes air May 6, 13 and 20.
