Recognized nationally as an expert in textiles and Victoriana, Steven Porterfield has appeared as an appraiser on the hit PBS TV show Antiques Roadshow. During the summer taping months, he travels to the show sites and spends the days appraising textiles — What keeps him going? The education of, and interaction with the public as they present their treasures. And, of course, the FIND! That one item that sets the heart beating quickly! Newly taped shows can be seen at the season start in January of each year.
