What’s your treasure?
Is it a rare book discovered in a dusty stack? Is it a hand-written letter, dating back to the Revolutionary War and passed down through generations? Is it a piece of artwork, purchased at a garage sale but worthy of a museum?
The discovery of a special something is just part of the thrill, says art and antiques expert Brian Witherell. Just as exciting is finding out the stories behind these items – true or otherwise -- and what they might be worth.
KIXE is the PBS member station serving Siskiyou, Modoc, Trinity, Shasta, Lassen, Tehama, Plumas, Glenn, Butte and Colusa counties and has been airing “Antiques Roadshow” since 1997. Witherell’s has provided appraisers for Antiques Roadshow since 2001 and is bringing that experience to four KIXE viewing communities.
