Paul Atterbury is an antiques expert, probably best known for his many appearances since on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow. He specialises in the art, architecture, design and decorative arts of the 19th and 20th centuries.
His mother Audrey Atterbury was a puppeteer who worked on the 1950s children's programme Andy Pandy who, it is claimed was based on the young Paul. Originally training as a graphic designer he later went on to work for Sotheby's. He became an historical advisor for Royal Doulton and was the editor of Connoisseur magazine from 1980 to 1981. Atterbury has written or edited over 30 books, mostly on ceramics but is also known for his travel writing, and in addition has written books on railways and canals.
He worked as a freelance writer, editor and broadcaster and regularly tours the country with his stage show 'Have You Had it Long Madam?' with fellow Antiques Roadshow expert Hilary Kay.
