Meredith Meuwly earned her bachelor's degree in classical studies and art history from Duke University in 2000, and a master's degree in modern art, connoisseurship, and the history of the art market from Christie's Education in New York in 2001. She spent the next five years as sale administrator and junior specialist under the leadership of G. Max Bernheimer and Molly Morse Limmer in the Christie's New York Antiquities department. During her time at Christie’s, she worked on numerous high-profile auctions of ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian art, including the Doris Duke Estate, Ancient Egyptian Art from the Harer Family Trust, and the John W.

As a generalist, she handled a multitude of daily inquiries ranging from paintings and prints to furniture and art glass. In the fall of 2009, she moved into her current role as director of appraisal services, managing all formal appraisals for the 29 collecting categories at Heritage.

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.
