Antiques & Collectibles: Authentic — from ‘Roadshow’ to Tiffany

“Antiques Roadshow,” PBS’s most watched prime-time series, returns for its 18th season tomorrow at 8 p.m. on WGBH Channel 2 with highlights from last summer’s visit to Boise, Idaho, where one of the highest valued finds of the season was discovered.

It was a painting of an Italian landscape by the Hudson River artist Sanford Robinson Gifford (1823-80) that had been inherited and relegated to the owner’s basement. It was appraised at $300,000.
