TBP interviews our very own Treasure Detective who has some warnings about fake antiques.

“Treasure Detectives” takes you deep inside the world of arts, antiques and collectibles and asks the question: is it a fake or is it worth a fortune? The series introduces world-renowned art detective Curtis Dowling and his team of investigators whose clients may be the victim of elaborate hoaxes. Each week, the “Treasure Detectives” team meets collectors and verifies the authenticity of collectibles, artwork and antiquities using innovative technology and street smarts to determine whether they’re sophisticated forgeries or extremely valuable collectors’ items…answers that could cost or earn owners a small fortune. They trace not just where an item came from, but how it was made…and in many cases, how it was faked.
