ANTIQUES and TRUE APPRAISALS

During a visit last year to the set of the popular Public Television series Antiques Roadshow, I was able to watch expert appraisers at work. They were examining precious objects that TV viewers had brought in.

The qualified opinions of these professionals reflect years of experience in handling and studying items in their field of expertise. They take into account such things as age, condition, and provenance—origin, previous owners, makers, and other history. They bring along magnifying glasses, flashlights, personal reference books, and so on—useful tools in evaluating the condition and value of items.
