Antiques Roadshow Cincinnati coming in April

 

Cincinnati – Jewelry, pottery, art, furniture, posters, toys, collectibles, dishes, heirlooms, woodworks, clocks and thousands of other items got the Antiques Roadshow treatment last summer at the show’s Cincinnati taping. There were people who heard what they expected, others whose dreams of an early retirement were dashed, and a lucky few who learned they had something really special – but what made the cut for the actual show?

 

The wait to find out is almost over!

 

The first episode will be broadcast at 8pm Monday, April 1, on CET. In this one, Antiques Roadshow visits the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati for a look at vintage electric signs. Some of the items featured include a baseball bat used by Mickey Mantle, art pottery from Cincinnati’s very own Rookwood Pottery and works by locally born and world-renowned artist Edward Henry Potthast valued at between $41,000 and $63,000. This episode will repeat in primetime at 8pm Thursday, April 4, on CET.

 

The second episode will air at 8pm Monday, April 8, on CET. This episode includes a visit to the Cincinnati Zoo to talk about how today’s endangered rhinos are affected by the antiques trade. Discoveries in “the city that sings” include a suit that belonged to Colonel Sanders, a bronze horse sculpted by Solon Borglum, and an 1846 wall map of the United States valued at more than $10,000. This episode will repeat in primetime at 8pm Thursday, April 11, on CET Create.

 

The third and final Cincinnati Antiques Roadshow will be broadcast at 8pm Monday, April 15, on CET. This one features the craftsmanship of Cincinnati carved furniture, a French advertising post and an impressive bust of Abraham Lincoln as well as a tip to the races with a trophy of the 1908 Belmont Stakes and an early 20th-century toy horse and buggy. A repeat of this episode in primetime will be at 8pm Thursday, April 18, on CET.

 

CET would like to thank everyone who applied for tickets and participated in Antiques Roadshow this summer.
