10 Most Expensive Items On Antiques Roadshow

Intro

The Antiques Roadshow had its debut in 1979, and ever since then, people have been lining up to get their family heirloom appraised in hopes of it being worth thousands – or even millions! – of dollars. And while the majority of items brought in are pretty much worthless, some of them are worth a fortune! Here are the 10 most expensive items on the Antiques Roadshow.

A rare brooch by the Victorian designer and architect William Burges turned out to be one of the show’s biggest finds back in 2011. During one of the episodes, Geoffrey Munn – the Antiques Roadshow jewelry expert – stated that the six brooches were his most wanted items in the world, and that he had been searching for them for more than 20 years. Jill Cousins – of Market Harborough – was shocked to see Munn holding up a sketch of six brooches, because one of the jewels had been in her jewelry box for 20 years! A few weeks later, Mrs Cousins was invited to a recording of the Antiques Roadshow, where Munn was able to see her brooch and confirm its authenticity.
