Judith Miller Antiques Roadshow

Unlike many of the Roadshow experts, Judith did not develop a love for antiques at a young age. Judith, a self-described member of the “Formica generation,” didn’t start collecting antiques until she was a student at Edinburgh University in the 1960s.

She became interested in the cheap plates she found in the city’s trash shops and started looking up information on them in books, auction catalogs, and at regional antique shows.

Through subsequent foreign studies, she has expanded and strengthened her knowledge of antiques. Judith co-founded the bestselling Miller’s Antiques Price Guide in 1979, and she has subsequently authored more than 100 publications.

Judith gives frequent lectures and writes for several national broadsheet publications. Additionally, she frequently makes appearances on American and British radio and television.

Judith has been a member of the ‘Miscellaneous’ team on the Antiques Roadshow since 2007. In 2009, a particularly noteworthy artifact from the period was discovered at Stanway House.

Although Judith had frequently used illustrations of this collection of Jean Dupas Art Deco posters in her books, this was the first time she had actually seen any of them.

If Judith could pick any object to appear on a Roadshow, it would undoubtedly be something related to Bonnie Prince Charlie. In her spare time, Judith likes to play bridge and travel the globe to watch Bruce Springsteen perform!

Following the terrible news, fans of the show joined the conversation on Twitter by expressing their tributes. 

Henry Nicholls & Son Antiques said,

It pains me to say that Judith Miller has left us. A stalwart in our trade, she was always happy to meet & greet, give advice & just be the real person she was. A massive supporter of young dealers coming into the trade, she was full of encouragement. I’ve known her for many years and she truly was a lovely person with so much knowledge which is now consigned to the files along with Geoff Godden & Arthur Negus to name but a few. RIP you legend. Xx

My greatest sympathy is with the family and friends of Judith Miller, a towering figure in the antique market, one viewer commented.
