A young woman in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania carefully removes what she thinks is a framed print from her wall. It has great sentimental value because she inherited from her grandmother. The young woman has taken the painting down because she’d noticed there’s a pesky mosquito trapped behind the glass. But as she removes the glass, she realizes that there might be more to this “print” than she’d thought.
So the woman from Harrisburg – we don’t have her name – decided to take the artwork along to an episode of TV’s Antiques Roadshow. At the open appraisal session, the woman sat with her possession accompanied by art expert Meredith Hilferty. She explained to Hilferty that the painting had been appraised as part of a general assessment of her home contents.
