Million Dollar Find: PBS’ ‘Antiques Roadshow’ has made the find of a lifetime. A woman’s inherited Chinese jade has garnered a  $1 million appraisal from experts on the series. The pieces, passed down from the woman’s family, belong to the Chien Lung Dynasty (1736-1795). “For 13 years, we’ve been hoping to feature a million-dollar appraisal on ‘Antiques Roadshow;’ it’s been our ‘Great White Whale,’” said executive producer Marsha Bemko.
