Million dollar appraisal at Antiques Roadshow..

Call me weird but i love the Antiques Roadshow.. both the British and US versions.For those of you who dont know its a tv show where “members of the public bring in items to be appraised by professionals in the hope of discovering that junk from the attic is actually a valuable treasure”.Most of the stuff is junk but every now and then people bring in something thats worth a fortune and on Saturday in Raleigh, North Carolina a woman brought in four Chinese carved pieces of jade she inherited from her father.Turns out they are from the Chien Lung Dynasty (1736-1795) and were made by imperial order for the Emperor and were given a “conservative auction estimate of up to $1.07 million”.The show has never cracked the million dollar mark..old timers rejoice  🙂

Forget the million dollar jade, check out that creepy chick from the Ring..damn!!
