Any Antiques Roadshow fans in Nashville? Don’t get too excited – The show isn’t actually coming to town – But we think this is probably the next best thing. A handful of appraisers that have appeared on Antiques Roadshow will be working at the NPT Antiques and Fine Arts Appraisal Day this Saturday at The Factory at Franklin, and they’ll be appraising your mystery antiques just like on the TeeVee! Each individual item appraisal will cost $10, and the event runs from 9am-4pm on Saturday, May 9. Oh, and leave your coins, stamps, books, arrowheads and ESPECIALLY your burial materials at home! From NPT:
Special guest appraisers, all of whom have appeared on the hit PBS show, Antiques Roadshow, include Ronald Bourgeault (Folk Art, Silver); Linda Dyer (Tribal Arts); Rafael Eledge (Arms & Militaria); Kerry Keane (Musical Instruments); Gloria Lieberman (Jewelry); Simeon Lipman (Sports Memorabilia, Collectibles) Stuart Slavid (Pottery & Porcelain); and David Weiss (Paintings & Drawings, Metalwork & Sculpture and Rugs & Textiles).
