Episode Summary

Antiques Roadshow - Trash to Treasure
"Trash to Treasure" proves sugar plum fairies aren't just in your dreams; they're also in your garbage. The one-hour special puts viewers in a festive mood with more than twenty 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 Indian 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.moreless
