A young Richmond collector on Antiques Roadshow
Tune in tonight or set your DVR for the premiere of Antiques Roadshow Richmond. The hour-long episode — the first of three — will air at 8 p.m. on WCVE, our local PBS station.
Episodes featuring Richmond, Parts 2 and 3, will air the following two Mondays, May 19 and 26.
Antiques Roadshow is PBS's highest-rated series, seen by about 8 million viewers each week.
Watch to see what the treasures shared in town last August might be worth and what stories they might tell.
One hightlight during tonight’s episode is a late 19th-century watercolor brought in by a young boy (pictured with the artwork). Apraiser David Weiss calls him, “one of our youngest up-and-coming collectors.” He purchased the watercolor by Albert Neuhuys for $2 at an auction. Curious to learn how much it’s worth? Tune in tonight.
You can find out what one of your own treasures might be worth at an Antiques Appraisal Fair this Saturday, May 17, at Patrick Henry’s Scotchtown in Beaverdam. Matt Quinn and Ken Farmer, two experts from Antiques Roadshow, will be there.
Appraisals will begin at 11 a.m. and will run through 3 p.m. Tickets are limited. If you go, save time to tour Scotchtown and its beautiful grounds, as well. Details here.
