JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: I have a 2 panel screen about 5 1/2 feet tall. It is carved with gilding. It has an oriental motif I have a cribbage board made of metal. The pegs are built into the board. At time of purchase I was told it was a captains board. A third item is a 3 piece tea set. It is dark blue with white trim. The original sales tag is still with it. Can you tell me how I can get these items on the Newport, RI show?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: The 2 panel screen is lined with matching fabric. I suspect it may be a replacement.

For the Antiques Roadshow, you would need to enter a lottery for tickets to the taping. The show does not take online submissions.

For photos, you can try emailing your images to *****@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.

Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.
