Antiques appraiser, show manager and TV personality John Bruno has returned to television.
Bruno appears as senior appraiser and co-host along with Ronda Pierson on Metro TV’s Antiques Show and Sell. Presented on Metro TV (check local listings for station number) Monday through Friday at 7 pm, with repeats at 10 pm and midnight, the show premiered on Monday, December 1. The return to television is welcomed by Bruno who also appeared several years ago as senior antiques appraiser on Personal FX — The Collectible Show and Treasures In Your Home.
This new show features appraisals of viewers’ rdf_Descriptions with a unique option to sell, something no current appraisal show offers. In addition, viewers are invited in to discuss their collections and information segments on antiques preservation and repair are presented, along with visits to area shows and markets. The show also features other well-known Personal FX and Treasures alumni such as Judith Katz-Schwartz and Suzy Anderson as guest appraisers, along with other important appraisers and personalities from the world of antiques and collectibles.
Broadcast from studios in New York City, Antiques Show And Sell promises to be an important addition to the genre with exciting new elements and features that will set it apart from the rest of the TV antiques show pack. Those who would like to have an rdf_Description appraised, and collectors who would like to be featured, should call the studio at 212-324-8721 or email them at .
John and his wife Tina Bruno own the Long Island, N.Y.-based Flamingo Promotions — one of the largest and fastest growing antiques show promotion companies in the Northeast. The Brunos personally oversee the operation of more than 30 antiques shows in the New York Metro region and New England.
John has been a highly successful antiques dealer on Long Island and in Manhattan for more than 20 years, and is a member of the Association of On-line Appraisers and the Appraisers Association of America, as well as president of Long Island-based Appraisal Associates. Well versed in everything from Americana to Vintage Clothing, he is recognized as an expert in Twentieth Century modern design, especially postwar home furnishings, as well as American dinnerware, vintage hammered aluminum giftware and 1960s/70s psychedelica.
