Eric Knowles   Born in Nelson, Lancashire, Eric worked in engineering before joining an antiques shipping firm in the early 70s. He moved to London in 1975 and joined Bonhams auction house as a porter. Eric's love of antiques (inherited from his parents) took him swiftly to the top where he is now the Director od Ceramics and Works of Art. He is a leading authority on 19th and 20th-century decorative arts and European and Oriental ceramics from the 17th century to the present. Eric is responsible for Bonham's internationally renowned sales of Lalique glass.
    Best known for his regular appearances on the BBC Antiques Roadshow (the most popular show on CBC Newsworld), Eric's genial personality and obvious sense of fun make him a very popular member of the team of experts. He has been a consultant on Miller's Antiques Price Guides since their inception and has written three of their Antiques Checklists (Victoriana, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco). Recent books include Victoriana to Art Deco, Royal Memorabilia and Discovering Antiques. Eric is a regular contributor to the BBC Homes and Antiques magazine and a frequent guest on numerous TV shows. He has recently organized The Eric Knowles Antiques and Collectors' Club. Eric is one of those rare individuals with the gift for sharing his considerable knowledge in a way that is exciting and easy to understand.
