America's Antiques Roadshow - premieres weekdays at 6.35pm from 4 August (Sky 534 & Virgin Media 243)

Mark L Walberg presents the American version of the series in which members of the public consult the experts to
learn the value of some of their ancient curios and collectibles.

The first three programmes of the week find Mark in Tulsa,
Oklahoma. On Monday, he visits the Pawnee Bill Ranch with
appraiser Nicholas Lowry to look at some remarkable Wild West
posters. They are shown a collection of Chinese rhinoceros horn
carved libation cups, some 300 years old and valued at over
$1,000,000, a record for the show. On Tuesday, Mark is impressed
by a 1960 first-edition copy of To Kill A Mockingbird, with an
inscription by Harper Lee. On Wednesday, Mark joins appraiser
Eric Silver at the Philbrook Museum of Art. Highlights include a
Ming Dynasty cast bronze guardian figure, dating back to 1600. On
Thursday the scene shifts to Eugene, Oregon, where Mark and Ken Farmer find a 1919 oil painting by Norman Rockwell, entitled The Little Model(pictured left), valued at $500,000. Finally on Friday, Mark joins appraiser Jeffrey Schrader at the Willamette Heritage Center to discuss the history and current values of World War I uniforms. One owner is made happy when an early 20th-century Russian presentation sword from the reign of Tsar Nicholas II, purchased for $500, is valued at over $75,000.
