(Rochester, NY) – An Antiques Roadshow special edition, “Tasty Treasures,” premiering Monday, November 14 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11), celebrates the season with a cornucopia of appetizing antiques and delectable collectibles for and about eating and drinking. Plucked from Roadshow's appraisal archive, highlights include a coveted stainless steel 1930s meat serving cart that saw decades of use at a Reno, Nevada casino; a rare toy coffee service made of 18th-century British porcelain; and an heirloom Tlingit Indian oil bowl and ladle, acquired by the owner’s great-great-grandfather during a military posting to Sitka, Alaska, in 1877, valued at a jaw-dropping $250,000 to $300,000.
