News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Appraiser and historian Elyse Luray will be joining thousands of antiques dealers and collectors at the next Atlantique City show, March 25-26 at the Atlantic City, N.J., Convention Center.
Luray is also a regular contributor to Antique Trader magazine, sponsor of AtlantiqueCity.
Luray is a certified appraiser and historian in popular culture, and one of four hosts on the PBS program, “History Detectives”, which will also have a booth at the show for the first time.
History Detectives is devoted to exploring the complexities of historical mysteries, searching out the facts, myths and conundrums that connect local folklore, family legends and interesting objects.
Using traditional investigative techniques, modern technologies, and plenty of legwork, the History Detectives team of experts discovers that artifacts, buildings and stories can give us new (and sometimes shocking) insights into our national history.
History Detectives is a co-production between Lion Television and Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Luray has also appeared on Metro TV’s “Bid New York”, where she was the collectibles expert and auctioneer. She is also the antique specialist of “Treasure Seekers” on Voom-HD, the high-definition TV network. She has been an appraiser on PBS’ “Antiques Road Show” and “The Early Morning Show” on CBS.
Luray spent 11 years at Christie’s auction house as an auctioneer and was a Vice President of the Popular Arts Department, and still serves as a consultant to the Collectibles Department.
She graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans, where she majored in Art History. She is a New York State-licensed auctioneer.
“The late 20th century has become a prime hunting ground for collectors, and Elyse’s experience and insights will help them navigate this new terrain,” said Mark F. Moran, Atlantique City show producer and editorial director of F+W Publications’ Antiques Group.
