Selected pieces will be transported to the event and back at no cost to the owner. For more details: pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/furniture.
At the appraisal event, approximately 6,000 ticketed guests will receive free valuations of personal antiques and collectibles from specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each guest is invited to bring two items for appraisal.
As part of the visit, “Antiques Roadshow” will also film field segments in and around Albuquerque, highlighting local history and places of interest. The 19th season will air in 2015.
“We are thrilled to have Albuquerque as one of our eight tour stops this summer,” said Executive Producer Marsha Bemko. “Guests will bring about 10,000 to 12,000 items to our appraisal event, so we’re sure to uncover some great treasures.”
“This is the third time ‘Antiques Roadshow’ will be taping in New Mexico,” said Franz Joachim, New Mexico PBS General Manager and CEO. “As the sixth city to be included in 1996 — in the series’ inaugural season — and again in 2002, we’re very pleased that the producers of ‘Antiques Roadshow’ have chosen to return to New Mexico. New Mexicans have historically brought interesting objects and fascinating stories to share with the nation.”
