Can You Spot the Most Valuable Antique?

Can You Spot the Most Valuable Antique?

A little game to help wrap up Antique Week on a fun Friday note! Here are four antiques, and while they are clearly very different items, they have much in common. All could be classified as Folk Art, are American, in good condition and from the 19th century. They have one really BIG variance - and that is in value (as determined - very basically in this case - by the listed asking price). If you were to come across these four priced equally at a flea market this weekend which would you choose as the best potential investment?

Remember, you are looking for the most valuable item here — one of these is priced over $100k higher than the the other three! Add your guess to the comments below and stay tuned. We'll share the answer on Monday.

A. Portrait of a Woman, American, 19th Century

B. Highwheel Bicycle, American, 19th Century

C. Ox Weathervane, American, 19th Century

D. Pieced and Appliquéd Quilt, American, 19th Century

Good luck and thanks for playing along!
