A rep for the classic show, which will air its 16th season next year, said that the cups are worth somewhere between $1-1.5 million, making the collection the most valuable in “Antiques Roadshow” history.

According to Mason, the cups were often given as gifts to wealthy people for special occasions in the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
