The proceeds will support educational programs at Locust Grove.  No appointments are needed. For larger collections, home visits are offered.

The public can bring their objects for viewing. Or, if there are a large group of items, team members may be contacted for on-site visits.

This will be the thirty-second road show held in New York State in the past seven years. It will be at The Locust Grove Estate in Poughkeepsie for the second time.

A number of important antique finds were made in the past, which include a one million dollar Chinese Imperial Zitan chair, a Gustav Stickley corner cupboard and a group of Japanese Surimono prints. Besides these treasures, a number of other surprises have been found at all price levels, often to the delight of the owners.

Featured will be leading experts in Americana documents and maps, jewelry, silver, furniture, stamps, coins, toys, military relics, books, sports memorabilia, Chinese and Japanese objects & ceramics, rugs, tapestries, prints, posters, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and other collectibles.

“We are excited to host The Appraisers Roadshow at Locust Grove,” said Ken Snodgrass the Executive Director. “The ability to offer a unique service for the public and partner with the great people from the road show is a win, win combination.”

A $7 fee per item will be charged, after five items there will be no additional charge.
