Why Dr. Lori?


Honest, Accurate and Hilarious!

You will laugh out loud and learn about your antiques during Dr. Lori's events.


Established reputation and a Ph.D Antiques Appraiser and an internationally known TV personality.

As the star antiques appraiser on the History channel's hit TV show The Curse of Oak Island and Discovery channel’s hit TV show, Auction Kings, Dr. Lori presents 150 antiques appraisal events every year. She has appeared on Anderson Cooper's talk show Anderson LIVE, Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, NBC TV's The Tonight Show, Inside Edition, and Lifetime Television. Dr. Lori Verderame is an internationally syndicated columnist whose column is carried in 400+ publications around the world and an award-winning TV expert.



Dr. Lori conducts approximately 150 events a year and reviews 20,000 objects a year.



Dr. Lori is not an antiques dealer, not a reseller of antiques, not affiliated with an auction house, and unlike other appraisers does not offer low-ball values or lower than market purchase offers for objects at  her events. She provides only accurate appraisal values and identifications.

Many appraisers are also dealers and resellers who host events to build their inventory. They are only doing appraisals to get objects to sell at their auctions or in their antiques dealerships. This practice can cause a problem with the people who bring objects to them for an appraisal. Dr. Lori's conducts events to have fun and to provide accurate and honest information to audiences, not to purchase objects.



Ph.D. in art history/antiques from Penn State University, expert art and antiques appraiser, experience in major museums including the Yale University Art Gallery, Allentown Art Museum, and Penn State's Palmer Museum of Art.  Dr. Lori is a former university professor who held faculty posts at Penn State University, SUNY, Southern Connecticut State University, Albertus Magnus College, and Muhlenberg College.
