Title: Going to Antiques Roadshow!
Post by: denny on May 12, 2011, 09:28:06 PM
Antiques Roadshow is coming to Eugene.  They have a lottery for tickets.  I applied a few months back and just found out I won 2!  My wife is taking a 1st ed. of Alice in Wonderland.  I'm taking a Royal Doulton beer pitcher and (one of 6) mug that's been in my family since before 1899.  It's a classic Royal Doulton design "Dr. Johnson at the Chesire Cheese".  I've seen the design on plates but never on a pitcher and mugs before.  I'm stoked!

Cool Denny, can you post pics of the items?  So I know what to take when I come visit? ;)

My local newspaper wants pics, too, so I'll post them here after I take them.  I've actually got another few really nice antique bier steins and mugs, thanks to a generous BIL.  I'll try to get pics of them all and then start a new thread where everybody can post theirs, too.

They specifically say "No cars".  Plus I'd have to tow it 35 miles into town.  ;)

This is all I've got...you can kinda see the curtains in the back window.  When my wife got it, she installed a fold down rear seat bed so she could go camping.

Well, you certainly wouldn't want to jump in the back of the van with any of those guys. :)

We're all thinking it Denny, just some won't post it  And some haven't read it until after Gordon, so there's no point in being repetitive. ;)

End of the story....got my pitcher and mugs appraised yesterday at the Roadshow.  Turns out it's a "cider set" made by Royal Doulton in the late 1800s.  The appraiser was impressed that I had all 6 mugs and it was ll in pristine condition.  He said he'd never seen a full set before.  He told me that it should be worth more than it really is but there's little market for it.  Bottom line was $450-700 for the whole set and you're not gonna see me on TV!  6000 people got tickets and appraisals and about 60 will be on TV.  3 1/2 hours of standing in line for 2 min. with an appraiser....and I'd do it again if I had the chance!

All I know is that they'll air 3 shows from Eugene sometime between Jan. and June next year.  I won't be on the air.  The big deal was a guy who brought a Norman Rockwell painting they valued at $500K!

Cool on the Roadshow Denny!

Ya know, there's a guy in Eugene that puts american V8's/ drivetrains in those old VW buses as a business.  I always smile when a bus gos screamin' by me, uphill, on I-5.

Most of us only know the show from what we see on TV.  Thanks for giving us some of the back-story Denny.  It sounds like you had fun with it.

Denny, didn't you say your wife was bringing a 1st ed. of Alice in Wonderland?  How did it do?
Title: Re: Going to Antiques Roadshow!
Post by: dbeechum on June 06, 2011, 07:03:24 AM
Bottom line was $450-700 for the whole set...

<pawn_stars>I'll give you $50 for it.</pawn_stars>

Nope, but one of my neighbors was on!  They filmed 80-90 segments and only are gonna use about 30 so the odds aren't in my favor.

How much would a vintage Denny go for?  Probably depends on condition I guess.
Title: Re: Going to Antiques Roadshow!
Post by: dbeechum on January 25, 2012, 06:47:55 PM
20 dollars, same as in town

Turns out it was a 2nd ed. worth about $1200.

A little more if it comes with the original VW bus.
