Part adventure, part history lesson and part treasure hunt, seven-time Emmy-nominated ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is now in its 14th season. Specialists from the country's leading auction houses - Bonhams & Butterfields, Christie's, Doyle New York, Skinner and Sotheby's - and independent dealers from across the nation offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-lost items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds. The 2010 lineup kicks off Monday, January 4 at 8/7C with ROADSHOW's first-ever million dollar appraisal.

Highlights include a 1920 Arts & Crafts desk and lamp - both of which light up; a rare circa 1960 Gibson Double 12 Electric Guitar; and a set of four Chinese Quianlong Period (1736-1795) carved jade objects whose auction estimate of $710,000 to $1,070,000 makes it the highest value appraisal in ROADSHOW history. Additional appraisal include: Apache Childrens Toys & Moccasins c. 1880-90; Appraised Value: $4,400 - $6,000; Late 19th-Century Hungarian Refugee Family Jewelry, Appraised Value: $12,000 - $14,000; 1841 Henry Lowndes Stoneware Storage Jar, Appraised Value: $10,000 - $15,000; 1912 Leslie Thrasher Oil, Two Boys Riding A Pulling Horse, Appraised Value: $15,000 - $20,000.
