Ken Sanders Appearing Live on Antiques Roadshow

Ken Sanders Rare Books is pleased to announce that Ken Sanders is an often featured appraiser in episodes of Antiques Roadshow. Watch for Ken Sanders in the upcoming season. Air times and additional information can be found at the Antiques Roadshow website.

Part adventure, part history lesson, and part treasure hunt, five-time Emmy® Award-nominated ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is PBS's highest-rated series. ROADSHOW is seen by almost 11 million viewers each week.

In each hour-long ROADSHOW episode, specialists from the country's leading auction houses -- Bonhams and Butterfields, Christie's, Doyle New York, Skinner and Sotheby's -- and independent dealers from across the nation offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-lost items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
