From the Roadshow

Thrift Store Vase Worth a Small Fortune

Overbeck Vase
Antiques Roadshow

A lucky guest visiting “Antiques Roadshow” for a valuation discovered that his thrift store vase was worth a bundle. The piece was purchased at a Goodwill store in Indiana for just $4.99.

Pottery expert David Rago identified the vase as “a seriously, seriously good piece of Overbeck.” He went on to share that the vase was made by Overbeck Pottery of Indiana, a company comprised of four sisters. They marked their pieces OBK, as found on the bottom of this example.

Rago estimated that the vase would sell for $50,000 to $100,000 at auction, should the owner decide to sell.

Wow, should keep us all searching and picking in hope of finding a hidden treasure.
