Robert Waterhouse, the founder of PKR Antiques & Fine Arts, has been a consistent participant in the Asian antique industry for over a decade.

Having had the opportunity to work on three continents, Robert has been retained by International auction houses, and has been called upon to appraise for public institutions in New York, Philadelphia, and Virginia.

Currently living and operating PKR Antiques out of New York City, Robert still enjoys traveling the US in search of antique treasures and rare art.

Robert is a regular appraiser on PBS's ANTIQUES ROADSHOW and contributor to industry publications including Millers Antiques Guide and Arts of Asia.

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.
