Antique Roadshow isn’t fake BUT some of their ‘expert’ appraisers are total jerks! I have been twice to tapings and both times ended up with at least two appraisers who were rude, arrogant, and dismissive. I knew I didn’t have any extraordinary find, but I certainly didn’t expect to be told off! On a positive note, 3 years ago in Des Moines we had a wonderful gentleman who spent over 20 minutes with my daughter and me, telling us all about the history of the pottery that we had brought. It was only worth around $50, but we came away with a greater appreciation of the piece.
