Program Description

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW specialists from the country's great auction houses appraise all sorts of Americana in Southfield, Michigan. People came from all over the world to settle in Michigan, and in the objects viewers see glimpses of many cultural backgrounds. Host Chris Jussel tours Southfield—a relatively new and diverse town near Detroit, incorporated less than 40 years ago. At the Southfield Civic Center, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW appraisers are thrilled to find a magnificent example of Duncan Phyfe furniture and an important watercolor painting.
