Lucy P. Grogan serves as Vice President and Gallery Director of Grogan & Company, Fine Art and Jewelry Auctioneers, established in Boston in 1987 by her father and fellow Antiques Roadshow appraiser, Michael B. Grogan. Lucy holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art History from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut . She is a recognized specialist in the auction and appraisal business and is frequently invited to lecture on the subject for various audiences including museums and educational organizations.

Lucy grew up deeply immersed in the fine art and auction world, accompanying her father on business trips and working for Grogan & Company consistently throughout her childhood. Jewelry captured her attention as a young girl and continues to be the focus of her expertise today. In addition to appraising jewelry, Lucy serves as an auctioneer for the firm. Prior to joining her family's business, Lucy worked as a Curatorial Assistant in Arts of the Americas at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, as a Fine Art Consultant at Trailside Galleries in Jackson, Wyoming, and as the Auction Coordinator for the Jackson Hole Art Auction.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is an antiques appraisal event and television production; we do not buy or sell objects, and conducting any business with an appraiser at the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event is strictly forbidden.

If you decide to do business with an appraiser who has appeared on ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, please keep in mind these tips before consigning or selling an item:

  • Get more than one referral and check references
  • Get valuations of your item from more than once source
  • Compare options between different types of sellers, i.e., a dealer versus an auction house
  • If you are considering consigning an object for auction, be sure to inquire how the item will be priced, the size of the fee, and the expected amount of time the process may take. Find out what will happen if it doesn't sell.
  • Check the appraiser's professional associations (such as International Society of Appraisers, American Appraisers Association, National Auctioneers Association)
  • Consult an attorney before signing a contract
  • Whatever kind of transaction you decide to enter into, always get a detailed written receipt for your records

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW’s pool of experts are professionals with a wide range of experience in the antiques, fine art and collectibles community, and they are from a diverse background of auctioneers, dealers and appraisers.

All ROADSHOW appraisers are independent volunteers who donate their time and expertise to PBS and who pay their own expenses to be on the show. All business transactions are independent from ANTIQUES ROADSHOW.
