A painting by John George Brown is featured on Antiques Roashow

Sep 20, 2013

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW host Mark L. Walberg meets appraiser Eric Silver at Miami’s Wolfsonian Museum to examine its large collection of World’s Fair objects — from souvenir ash trays to Fair objects to spectacular works of fine art. Highlights include a rare, Qing Dynasty (early 18th century) vase; a 1956 Gretsch Chet Atkins Model 6120 guitar; and a charming oil painting by popular Victorian artist John George Brown, valued at $40,000 to $50,000.

Antiques Roadshow airs on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.

At ANTIQUES ROADSHOW in Miami Beach, Florida, this guest hoped his 1876 John George Brown painting might be worth $3,000. However, appraiser David Weiss astonishes him with an estimated value of $40,000 to $60,000! Brown is widely known for his depictions of street urchins, newspaper sellers and shoeshine boys, making this painting of a beautiful young lady slightly atypical.
