Four Rooms US
About the Show
Sellers enter fierce negotiations with four expert US antiques dealers to get top dollar for their memorabilia, but the challenge lies in knowing when to accept an offer and when to move on
Series 1 Summary
In four rooms, four of the shrewdest art and antiques dealers in the USA - Bill Roland, Jake Chait, Jordan Tabach-Bank and Patrick Painter - are ready to part with big money. Each has made a fortune knowing what to buy and how much to pay for it.
Now, participants in this new series are hoping to walk away with fortunes of their own, by selling their most treasured possessions.
Moving from room to room, sellers enter fierce negotiations with one dealer at a time, trying to get top dollar for their memorabilia. The challenge lies in knowing when to accept an offer and when to move on.
Many of the sellers bring along amazing artefacts. But once a seller rejects an offer, they can't go back. Haste could cause them to miss out on big bucks and greed could send them home empty handed.
The show challenges the dealers' expertise and tests the sellers' nerves. One wrong decision could cost thousands. Presented by Michael Kalish.
Negotiations take place between the sellers and the four antiques experts over a king's solid-gold sword handle, autographed bonnets of three NASCAR vehicles, and a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.
The four dealers vie for Kurt Cobain's guitar and a lock of Elvis Presley's hair. A Civil War enthusiast is sent packing, negotiations heat up, and the sellers learn an expensive lesson: come prepared or leave disappointed.
The four dealers gamble on the craziest collection yet, including a Prohibition-era roulette wheel, an extinct marine reptile known as 'The T-Rex of the Sea', a saddle that was custom made for film star Jack Palance, and a map that leads to murder. But it's a tiny bottle originally bought for 25 cents that drives bidding sky-high.
The four dealers compete for a dress that was worn by Marilyn Monroe, a rare African insect collection, two early photographs by Ansel Adams, a Tiffany lamp, and a remote-controlled bunny that's an advertising icon.
The four dealers wonder whether there's money to be made from a car that walks on water. Rare Star Wars memorabilia leaves one expert moonstruck, everybody scrambles to get their hands on some props from musical comedy film The Blues Brothers, and a set of 'Wacky Packages' artwork is up for grabs.
The four dealers vie for a Kashmir sapphire ring, a superhero suit dating from the 1950s, a set of 19th-century love letters that were transported by hot-air balloon, and a collection of antique bottles of spirits.
