Fans of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW have wrestled with these weighty questions since the hit PBS series debuted eight years ago. Beginning Wednesday, January 19, 2005 the producers of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW proudly present this brand-new weekly series of 26 half-hour programs, revealing the answers to What happens to the stuff after the owners leave the convention hall? ...

A cross-country excursion with stops in America's top antiques shows and auctions. Candid conversations and trade secrets from ROADSHOW experts. Unsolved mysteries surrounding stolen works of art and surprising updates on treasures from past ROADSHOW episodes. Series release date: 1/19/2005

Program Description

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW FYI correspondent Clay Reynolds catches up with the owner of a certain pelican who recently made a lucrative migration from Savannah, Georgia to New York City. The pelican in question is a bronze Rembrandt Bugatti sculpture appraised in 2003 at the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event in Savannah for $20,000 to $30,000 and sold at auction in New York. Later, Clay delves into the emotions that drive collectors when he visits with Nicholas Lowry of Swann Galleries, a longtime appraiser on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW and passionate collector of Czech posters. Then, ROADSHOW FYI joins expert Ken Farmer for a jaunt through Jugtown and the many other storied potteries of Seagrove, North Carolina. Finally, Clay and appraiser Colleene Fesko open up the cold case file of "The Chanting Cherubs," an early piece by famed American neoclassical sculptor, Horatio Greenough. Commissioned by James Fenimore Cooper, the marble masterpiece had a short public life, from 1831 to 1832, before it was reportedly sold — and then disappeared.
