Third Place in the Antiques Roadshow Top Ten Items

Formerly the most valuable appraisal to ever appear on the US broadcast of the Antiques Roadshow, but knocked into 2nd place in January 2009, and then into 3rd place in January 2010. This hand-woven Navajo Ute First Phase wearing blanket is a representation of the very beginnings of Navajo textile creation. This national treasure sat on the back of a chair for generations.

    I love seeing humble elderly people experience this much joy. It makes my day.

    Love the conversation ” you have a national treasure”, ” I stopped breathing”, “when you walked in with this I just about died”. I absolutely love it when watching these shows the reactions of both owner and evaluator. Whats more, when you can hear the genuine excitement in the voice of the evaluator.

    Celia Imrie is an absolute joy to watch,in anything & certainly in Acorn Antiques.Just finished reading her book,”The Happy Hoofer” which was a fascinating read.

    Thank you so much for going through the effort to put all these up, much appreciated! This has to be my favourite series of VW sketches :) So many brilliant ones to choose from though!

    It’s a send up of British ATV’s ‘Crossroads’ in the mid 1960′s…A soap series set in a country motel somehwere near Birmingham. It was famous for low budget wobbly sets and even lower budget wobbly scripts,performed live straight to tape and unedited in the early days so there was a degree of covering up when mistakes were made. But it was very popular and much loved..
