Stuart Slavid joined Skinner in 1989 as director of the Fine Ceramics department, specializing in English and Continental ceramics of the 18th through the 20th centuries. Stuart is internationally recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Wedgwood pottery, and his life-long passion for English pottery and ceramics characterizes the strength of Skinner's Fine Ceramics department.

In 1993 Stuart was also appointed director of Skinner's European Furniture and Decorative Arts department, which offers fine European furniture and decorative arts, silver, and ceramics at auction. Stuart's vast knowledge and experience in this field has helped position Skinner as a major U.S. force in the sale of fine European pieces to both national and international clients.

As a leading auctioneer and general appraiser at Skinner, Stuart often lectures and conducts benefit auctions. He belongs to a number of professional organizations, including the China Students' Club of Boston, the Wedgwood Societies of New York and Boston, and the American Ceramics Circle.

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.
