Instead Of Rent Money, His Friend Gave Him An Old Vase. If Only He Knew!
Sometimes, the funnest part about these Antiques Roadshow clips is learning how the owner of the featured item acquired it. As you’ll see below, the owner of this vase accepted it as payment from a friend whom he let stay with him, in lieu of cash. Well, that vase turned out to be an antique piece made by Grueby Pottery of Boston, that dates back to 1897; and it’s appraised at $15,000-$30,000! An interesting take away from this clip is looking at the bottom of a piece of pottery to try to determine age (specifically for Grueby Pottery). Take a look below, and get a closer look at the vase. What do you think? Would you cash in, or keep it?
