On the next Kentucky Collectibles, hosts Dave Shuffett and Amy Hess explore an original Woodstock poster, a Thomas Hart Benton lithograph purchased at a dollar store, and an 18th-century still life passed down through a Kentucky family for more than 200 years. The program airs Saturday, Nov. 3 at 4:30/3:30 p.m. CT and Sunday, Nov. 4 at 6:30/5:30 p.m. CT on KET.
Also in this program, Hess takes a trip to Carlisle, where she visits the Kentucky Doll and Toy Museum. The museum has more than 1,000 pieces in its collection, and it contains resource materials for visitors to research the history of their own treasures.
KETís newest production Kentucky Collectibles tells Kentuckyís stories through prized items, whether heirloom or kitsch, that guests share with Shuffett and Hess. The hosts will also make side trips throughout Kentucky as they explore the world of antiques and collectibles at shops, boutiques and more.
In May, hundreds of people brought their treasures to KETís Appraisal Fair. With cameras rolling, expert appraisers talked to participants about their possessions, assessing the value and history of items that included art, antique furniture, autographed baseballs, pottery and much more.
Kentucky Collectibles is a KET production, produced by Erin Milburn Lowry and is funded by KET's Endowment for Kentucky Production.
