About Treasure Detectives

The Treasure Detectives take us deep inside the world of arts, antiques and collectibles to uncover the stories of some amazing artefacts and whether they’re real or fakes

Treasure Detectives

Curtis Dowling and his team of investigators – research assistant Catherin Knebel, people person Andy Smith and collector Matthew Brandon Hutchens - verify the authenticity of collectibles, artwork and antiquities using innovative technology and street smarts. Is it a fake or is it worth a fortune?

From a collector who believes he has purchased a rare Lalique glass automobile hood ornament and the long-time art collector who believes he’s come across a rare Roy Lichtenstein, and collectors who think they’ve got their hands on a Tiffany lamp and a Honus Wagner T-206 baseball card, Curtis and the team are ready to go where no other treasure detective has gone before to reveal the truth.
