    What happened with the woman that got the Million-Dollar appraisal on Antiques Roadshow..

    for the four jade carvings, including a dragon-design bowl that had been ordered to be made at Imperial command? Altogether the items were appraised for 1.07 million. My husband and I saw the episode the other night and it was taped in Raleigh, NC (I believe the year was 2009). I am curious if the lady sold her pieces at auction and if so, how much did she get for them? Thanks!

    You might be able to look it up on Google by typing in some key words.

      I tried but all I could find were articles written around the time the episode came out.

    Her son, very carefully, took it in and got it appraised at the $1,000,000,000. About 30 years ago she received an offer of $5,000 and refused it thinking she could get $10-20,000 at that time.
    At the end of the show, I guess, he was told (she was not there) it could be sold for $700 - $1,000 at an auction. He bubble wrapped it to put back under the desk. So I assume that was not sold. The link to the site where I found the information is below:

      Kevin, that is interesting, but the vase is not the items I saw. There were four pieces of carvings of green jade. Thanks anyway!
