Sep 20, 2013

From Miami Beach, Florida, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW revs up for its 15th anniversary season premiere. Host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Karen Keane scout for mid-century modern bargains at some of Miami’s antiques and thrift shops. Highlights include a rare 1960 re-release movie poster for the iconic biker film The Wild One, starring Marlon Brando; a George Ohr vase with a surprising secret; and a 1940s mobile by Alexander Calder — grabbing the number two spot in the list of all-time highest value ROADSHOW appraisals at $400,000 to $1,000,000!

"Miami Beach, FL, Pt. 1" on Antiques Roadshow airs on Monday, October 21st at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.

Pictured here, a cheerfully unassuming-looking mobile, received by the owner’s aunt in 1958 as a gift from Alexander Calder, and brought to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Miami Beach, Florida. Considered to be the inventor of the mobile art form, Calder’s kinetic sculptures often have been imitated. Appraiser Christopher Kennedy believes the mobile could be worth as much as $400,000 to $1M, making it the second highest value appraisal in ROADSHOW history!
