Program Description

In this special edition, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW "Wild Things" revisits the most memorable animal-themed antiques and collectibles showcased on ROADSHOW over the years. Some of the warm and fuzzy discoveries include a 19th-century Charles Van den Eycken painting of cavorting kittens — an ode to the "inner wild thing" — appraised for $15,000 to $25,000. Among the more dramatic beasts of prey are a late period bronze Egyptian falcon mummy sarcophagus worth between $12,000 and $18,000. And in the category of creatures of the imagination is a sculpture depicting the elusive "kangaroo bird" as dreamed up and sculpted by the legendary Dr. Seuss in the 1930s, authenticated in a letter from Seuss himself, and valued at $25,000.
