Could You Be An Appraiser On "Antiques Roadshow"?

Hit the road and put your knowledge to the test!

  1. Number 1 Barbie Doll & Accessories (1959)

    PBS
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's $3,500 – $4,500!

    Appraiser’s notes: "She has arched eyebrows, white irises in the eye, and holes in her feet to slide into a stand. The value would be even higher if it had the original box and stand that came with it."

  2. Eloise Polk McGill "Flowering Cactus" Oil Painting (1937)

    PBS
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's $20,000!

    Appraiser’s notes: "Great condition with incredible colour. This painting was completed one year before her death and has as a distinct signature in the bottom left corner. This artist is well-known for painting blue bonnets and cactus flowers, like in this piece."

  3. French Porcelain Cabaret Coffee Set (1900)

    PBS
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's $5,000 – $7,000!

    Appraiser’s notes: "The set is of exceptional quality. All of the scenes are hand-painted and the raised gold detailing is all done by hand as well. This set was used for display, not for use."

  4. Charles Schulz “Snoopy” Sketch (1985)

    PBS
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's $12,000!

    Appraiser’s notes: "Schulz’s work is incredibly iconic, especially with the 'Peanuts' comics and 'Charlie Brown Christmas.' He is one of the top earning deceased artists and his work continued to earn millions every year. This sketch was done on low quality flip chart paper, but what’s unique about it is that this sketch is much bigger than the market is used to seeing."

  5. Chinese Huanghuali Cosmetic Case (1700)

    PBS
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's $40,000 – $60,000!

    Appraiser’s notes: "The person who constructed this used high quality, rare wood not just on the exterior, but on the interior. The carving on the top of the case is a stylized cloud shape that uses animal forms like dragons and the front is covered in lotus carvings. It would be value higher if it still had the original mirror that it came with."
