Boise visit will open ‘Antiques Roadshow’s’ 18th season

The popular PBS show “Antiques Roadshow” filmed in Boise in June. The visit yielded one of the high-values for the season: an oil painting of an Italian landscape done by Hudson River Artist Sanford Robinson Gifford that was appraised for $300,000. The series of three episodes filmed at Expo Idaho will open the show’s 18th season.

Appraiser Leslie Keno from "Antiques Roadshow" examines a chair from Donna of Boise, from her great-uncle's grandfather. It dates about 1835.
