Widower fulfills his late wife's wish on 'Antiques Roadshow'

A Widower Fulfills His Dead Wife's 'Antiques Roadshow' Wish

Things got emotional on Monday night's episode of "Antiques Roadshow" when a grieving widower brought in several vases to honor his late wife.

The two have always been big fans of the "Roadshow," and she was excited to get the two Bohemian vases appraised.

Sadly, she died before they could make it, so he and her twin sister decided to make the trip anyway to honor her dream of being on the show.

"I would put these at a value of about $4,000," said appraiser Kathleen Bailey on "Antiques Roadshow."

"Wow, alright!" said the vases' owner.

"This is an emotional one! Thank you for bringing them," said Bailey.

"Thank you for having us," said the owner.

This episode was definitely a tearjerker. Quite a few viewers on Twitter admitted to reaching for the tissues during the touching appraisal.

The owner of the vases was happy to hear they were worth so much. His wife had purchased them for just $25 a piece at a consignment shop in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Though he struggled to hold back tears during the appraisal, he said she would have been so thrilled to hear their value.
