HOW DID A MOSQUITO REVEAL A MASTERPIECE?

"ANTIQUES ROADSHOW" APPRAISER BRINGS GUEST TO TEARS IN STUNNING SEASON OPENER!

Hit PBS Show Delivers Season 22 Surprises With Never-Before-Seen Treasures New season premieres Monday, January 8 at 8/7c PM

November 21, 2017, Boston, MA - After more than 20 years searching for America's hidden treasures, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW finds sensational first-time objects in six cities featured as part of season 22. From eyewitness accounts of historic moments to items that are truly macabre, ROADSHOW appraisers, guests and locations make this a ground-breaking new season!

"I was amazed by the number of never-before-seen items discovered on this year's tour," says executive producer Marsha Bemko. "That mix of new treasures and sizzling stories along with our first event filmed at a Gilded Age mansion in Newport, RI fills this season with can't-miss episodes!"

Along with discovering the mystery of the mosquito and the masterpiece, viewers will see other first-time items such as:

· In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a head in a box! A plaster head, that is, of a convicted bank robber who fashioned the prop to aid in his attempted prison escape. Harrisburg episodes will air January 8, 15 and 22.

· In New Orleans, Louisiana, a charming study of Andy Warhol painted by his friend, artist Jamie Wyeth, capturing Warhol with his beloved dog Archie. New Orleans episodes will air January 29, February 5 and 12.

· In St. Louis, Missouri, a vintage Ozark Airlines poster, ca. 1960, featuring aircraft of the era and company logo illustrated through mid-century modern design. St. Louis episodes will air February 19 and 26, and March 26.

· In Portland, Oregon, an eyewitness account of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln captured in a letter written by the guest's grandfather, who was at Ford's theater that fateful night and captured a most remarkable description of John Wilkes Booth. Portland episodes will air April 2, 9 and 16.

· In Green Bay, Wisconsin, a rare Cadillac "rain lamp," ca. 1968, used to promote the famous auto brand through modern design and a unique mineral-oil-on-wire feature that simulated rain. Green Bay episodes will air April 23 and 30, and May 7.

· In Newport, Rhode Island, a one-of-a-kind 1939 Royal typewriter, plated by Cartier in 24k gold and presented to the guest's grandfather, who was vice president of sales at Royal during the period. Newport episodes will air May 14 and 21.
