Growing up, I always loved watching Antiques Roadshow on PBS. My favorite part: the payoff moment where every participant and viewer waits breathlessly for the appraisal. And on the rare occasion of a valuable find, the participant’s reaction: “Oh my goodness, I would have never guessed. I found it in my grandmother’s attic.” Now you can be that participant breathlessly awaiting the appraisal of your Chinese piece of art or ceramic.
A specialist from the Chinese Works of Art department at Sotheby’s New York will be taking appointments on May 8 for private auction estimates at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
