YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU’LL FIND! 

ADVENTURES IN COLLECTING ANTIQUES, PORCELAIN, POTTERY, AND GLASS 

The 2016 McFaddin-Ward House Lecture Series continues with a special evening of antiques. If you love collecting old objects, you won’t want to miss this presentation. Antique, Art, Pottery, Porcelain, and Glass expert, David Lackey, brings his knowledge and talent to the McFaddin-Ward House in its continuing 2016 Lecture Series.

Speaker, David Lackey graduated from Baylor University, dealt in antiques for several years, then did intensive study at Christie’s Fine Arts in London. He has been a collector for most of his life, starting at the young age of 6 when he received an antique penny bank in the shape of a house. This simple gift ignited David’s passion for collecting old objects, and he began to shop with his parents at flea-markets and garage sales. By the age of 12, he was selling at weekend antiques fairs and to other dealers who appreciated his keen eye for quality items.

David Lackey presently owns an antique shop in Houston, creates his own art, and can be seen appraising collectibles on the enormously popular PBS series Antiques Roadshow. Please join us for this enlightening lecture and find out how he determines what your special “something” is worth.
