Antiques Roadshow

What do a 1940 Olympic poster, a signed Oscar Wilde book, and a Moravian ceramic flask have in common? Well, they've all recently been appraised on the rather popular PBS program, Antiques Roadshow. If one can't watch the show itself, this website is a nice surrogate, offering additional information about antiquing, including a glossary of terms, a virtual roadshow tour, and some helpful tips. Seasoned veterans may want to skip ahead to the appraisers section, where they may learn about the appraisers featured on each program, organized by specialty. Visitors can also get inside each of the stories featured on the program by visiting the "Follow the Stories" area where they can select an area of interest (such as decorative arts or folklore) or by browsing through a list of cities the Roadshow has visited in the past. Finally, visitors who can't make it to a taping of the show should feel free to submit their own antique story online here.
