Going to Antiques Roadshow!
« on: May 12, 2011, 02:28:06 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.

Awesome.  Love that show. I typically don't watch TV but that's one I will watch.
Good Luck!  :)

Maybe you should bring the '76 Vee Dub.

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.
