You’ve watched the show, and you’ve wondered to yourself…that thing I threw away a few years ago that I thought was junk, did I make a huge mistake?!
Well, as we know, 99% of the time you didn’t make a mistake a mistake by throwing that out, because just as you suspected, it was junk.
But then, again, maybe that’s what these people thought they had, until they brought the item in for the appraisers to have a look-see.
For example, the owner of this old painting of some cats just took it to the taping to try to get more info about it. Turns out, the painting, called “Kitten Symphony” was painted by Julius Adam II, a German painter well-known for painting cats and kittens. Also, apparently cats and dogs are extremely popular subjects with auction houses that cater solely to collectors of cat and dog-themed pieces (that’s a thing?!).
The AR appraiser gave this painting – from about 1885 – an auction value of $8,000 to $12,000!
