An Evening with Paul AtterburyThursday, November 11th, 2010
The Antiques Roadshow has been on our televisions screens for over three decades. As a nation our fascination with valuable antiques once found in the loft and hidden behaind a sofa keep viewers ritually coming back for more every Sunday evening.
Presenters and experts have come and gone. However, Mr Paul Atterbury, has been a mainstay on the experts panel for 14 years.
Despite working in the “Miscellaneous” section, Paul specialises in the art, architecture, design and decorative arts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
