    The antiques & collectibles market is being affected as never before by fakes, forgeries, copies, and reproductions. Even experts are being fooled. It seems like the faster we develop new technologies to uncover fakes, the faster crooks develop technology to outsmart us. So, how should we confront this attack on our business? In this week's show I try to begin to tackle this issue. We all know that reproductions tend to drive down values for antiques. That's not new. But did you know that high quality digital images can now replicate an oil painting's texture, and that the resultant print can often fool people who have dealt in art for their entire career? Can you believe that the market for arrowheads is being undermined by new imports? But it's a complex issue. There are reproductions done in the 19th century that replicate 18th century pieces. Are these reproductions worthy of collecting? I did a show on this subject in 2013, entitled, "Fakes, Knockoffs, and Repros" (it's in the Videos section). But things have gotten worse since then. In this week's show we'll begin to look at fakes, forgeries, copies, and reproductions in an effort to distinguish the real from the unreal. Please join us at the usual time: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Hope to see you then. Gary

    On July 24 the Government released 3810 documents relating to the JFK assassination. Included among them are 17 audio files of interviews with Soviet defector, Yuri Nosenko. 441 documents had never been released before, and 3,369 had been released but had portions redacted, but are now unredacted. The Government is required by a 1992 law to release the remaining files concerning the assassination by October 26, 2017, but at least 2 government agencies are asking President Trump to withhold some materials. In this week's show I discuss what we've learned so far, and I provide a list of what I hope we'll get by October 26. This is the 7th program we've done on the Kennedy assassination, beginning in May 2011 with an interview with Mary Ann Moorman, the woman who took the famous polaroid of the fatal shot with the grassy knoll in the background. The 6 shows already done are in the Videos section & on Youtube: :"Cameras Important to the JFK Assassination," "Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald?", "If Oswald Didn't Do It, Who Did?", "Interview with Mary Ann Moorman", "Interview with Assassination Researcher, John Kelin," and an "Update on the JFK Assassination" in May 2015. This week's program is on at the usual time, Sunday, August 13, 2017 at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Please join us. Gary

    Our program this coming Sunday, August 6, 2017, will provide the first opportunity for anyone to view one of the most important artifacts of Chinese history--a 24' long map of the Yellow River and surrounding towns and buildings done by the artists of the Imperial Court between 1720 & 1740. It remains in remarkable condition, with colors still vibrant. This extraordinary worrk of art served a military purpose--it provided the Imperor and his generals with vital information about the topography of the domain of the Ching Dynasty in these tumultuous years at the beginning of the 18th century--a time of expansion and material growth. Please join us at the usual time to hear Chris tell us about this very rare item in his world-class collection of Imperial Chinese Art. We're on at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    Fall is around the corner and it’s time for decorating the house with baskets of gourds, wreaths, corn stalks, pumpkins, and maybe a vintage wood bucket full of apples. With fall comes cooler weather and I never fail to wish I had a set of Franciscan dinnerware in the October pattern made by Gladding-McBean. This company started making dinnerware in the 1875 and it’s still making dinnerware and pottery today. Throughout the changing times, Franciscan Ware evolved from the 1940’s with their Apple and Desert Rose designs. Their Desert Rose design embodied a new California style of ceramics, illustrating both Spanish and Western styles. During the 1950’s styles changed to modern, Mid-Century, and Franciscan created their Starburst pattern with geometric shapes. In the 1970’s, Franciscan Ware was sold to Wedgwood. A few of their most popular lines are still in production today and can be found at Macy’s and other stores. The new dinnerware being produced today is fine but just knowing you have the vintage dinnerware that a family used in the 1940’s and on is still appealing. The Brass Armadillo stores have a wide selection of Franciscan Ware and will gladly help you with locating the pattern of your choice. For more information about Franciscan dinnerware, check out the Franciscan Ceramics Archive’s website. Happy Fall Season!

    For this week's show we headed up to the top of Lookout Mountain outside Denver to visit the studio of renowned Colorado artist, Don Sahli. Don was gracious enough to show us around and discuss his current work. Don has been one of Colorado's most famous artists for decades, but you might not have known that he began full-time work as an artist working as an apprentice to Sergei Bongart in Idaho and Santa Monica in the early '80's. He was even showing paintings at a gallery in Taos, New Mexico at age 15! Don's work has always been noted for extraordinary color, and native Coloradans are probably most familiar with his paintings of aspen in the fall, but Don has also created magnificent plein air landscapes of Maui and Mexico, and he's now doing workshops in abstract art. Please join us this coming Sunday evening, July 30, 2017, for this week's show from the Sahli Studio. We're on at the usual time: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    There are bargains, and then there are some really crazy low prices. The Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver is filled with bargains (otherwise it wouldn't have remained in business for 19 years!), but in this week's show I'll profile a few bargains that are just too good to pass up. How about an antique steamer trunk that I would have priced at about $225 for $69.95? How about a piece of Roseville that shows a completed sale on Ebay for $80 selling in the Mall for $60? How about antique engravings taken from Collier's magazine for $1.00 each (including highly collectible Black Americana images)? The list is long, but in order to see them all you'll just have to join us tomorrow (Sunday) evening for this week's show. We're on July 23, 2017 at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Hope you can be with us. Gary
