Videos by Dr. Lori

Watch Dr. Lori explain why an antiques expert should wear gloves when identifying and valuing antiques, her opinion on those who don’t wear gloves, and a cute story about a little girl who watches Dr. Lori on TV live from one of Dr. Lori’s popular antiques appraisal events.


Watch Dr. Lori recount a true story at one of her antiques appraisal events about a valuable old bottle that resold for $60,000 after somebody bought it for only $1,200 on a well-known auction website. Listen how this affects you and the money you are losing when you are researching and using online auction sites as a price guide to value your antiques. Big mistake. If you know your stuff about old bottles, you could have been the one who bought the bottle at a good price from the seller who didn’t know. You can still find valuables shopping at online auctions. Read other stories about using online auctions as price guides.


Watch Dr. Lori identify and value a 6,000 dollar diamond ring at one of her antiques appraisal events. She highlights how the cut is before 1920 and why the setting of the ring is similar to a painting’s frame as it can increase the appraised value. Good to know when you need to negotiate buying jewelry or valuing it.
