As the new year approaches, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s special edition “Trash to Treasure” sets an optimistic tone with more than 20 incredible tales of treasures rescued from rubbish heaps, roadsides, dumpsters and demolition sites. Highlights include: an autographed script of the Academy Award-winning 1935 John Ford movie The Informer, unearthed from a pile of discarded books, valued at $4,000 to $5,000; a rare circa 1885 Zuni pot, found by the side of a road in Tucson, valued at $15,000 to $25,000; and precious relics from Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Laurelton Hall mansion, destined for demolition until salvaged by a quick-thinking carpenter, valued at $80,000 to $100,000.
