Antiques Roadshow: Campbells Soup Paper Dress
Paper dresses were all the rage in the late 1960s, and according to Antiques Roadshow
appraiser Nan Chisholm, they’re “the ultimate symbol of disposability in modern culture.” According to Chisholm, this 1967 Andy Warhol-inspired paper dress, appraised when the Roadshow
traveled to Omaha in 2004, could fetch between $2,000 and $3,000 – good news for the owner of the dress, who was previously told it was worth only $40.
