The Antiques Roadshow tour in the United States will be increasing the number of cities on the list to be visited. As convention centres make bookings years ahead of time, the programme’s production team is also thinking ahead into the future and adding two more cities to the existing six on the tour. The team at Antiques Roadshow has most recently welcomed antiques fans to the Anaheim Convention Centre, where six thousand collectors turned up.
The appraisers are helping guests to understand the history of the items, along with the potential value. Treasures range from valuable art work to family heirlooms which are only valuable to the owner of the piece, but they all have a story to tell. According to Marsha Bemko, the executive producer, the number of interesting and valuable discoveries continues to increase, with more than one million items being appraised during Antiques Roadshow tours. One of the developments for the show is a website that will feature web exclusives, while local radio stations will be organising Antiques Roadshow type events. Bemko states that the TV show is popular as it relates to all ages, with appraisers passionate about their work and the items which are brought in to the show.
Although the new format for the show will remain “familiar and cosy”, information will play a large role in the TV show, enabling viewers to make informed decisions and choices. Choosing large items like antique dining tables can be overwhelming, which is why antiques dealers in Lancashire are always ready to share their knowledge with clients.
