This February, Antiques Roadshow touches down in Atlantic City, then detours to the Wheaton Arts Center in Millville, where appraiser Arlie Sulka looks at some beautiful old American paperweights and host Mark L. Walberg tries his hand at glass blowing.
Highlights include a Walt Whitman memoir inscribed by the author to a group of firefighters; a late 19th-century bronze and marble statue by the acclaimed French sculptor Albert Ernest Carrier Belleuse; and an oil painting by acclaimed 19th-century Canadian artist Cornelius Krieghoff, noted for portraying narrative-like scenes, valued at $200,000 to $350,000.
Part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt, seven-time Emmy® Award-nominated Antiques Roadshow marks its 14th season in 2010.
PBS’s highest-rated series, Roadshow is seen by almost 10 million viewers each week. Veteran television personality Mark L. Walberg serves as series host.
Cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-lost items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. The series’ season premiere includes Roadshow’s first-ever million-dollar find and sets the pace for one of the most unpredictable lineups ever. Antiques Roadshow is produced for PBS by WGBH Boston.
Executive producer is Marsha Bemko.
