Bunny Campione Biography – Bunny Campione Wiki

Bunny Campione is an English antiques expert. She is well-known from her many appearances on “The Antiques Roadshow”, one of the BBC’s longest-running and most popular programmes. The antiques expert has been a member of the BBC Antiques Roadshow team since 1985. She runs her own antiques and fine art consultancy, undertaking valuations and buying and selling antiques on behalf of clients.

Antiques expert Bunny Campione specialises in automata, birdcages, costume and textiles, corkscrews, dolls, dolls’ houses, pre-Victorian miniature furniture and soft toys. She has written many articles on antiques and she has acted as consultant on several specialist books while regularly contributing to antiques magazines. She frequently gives talks or lectures and enjoys the challenge of charity auctions where she finds extracting large bids to the benefit of deserving causes particularly worthwhile.

Bunny worked at Sotheby’s for 23 years until 1996. She first joined Sotheby’s on their main reception counter before progressing to the silver and then to the furniture departments. In 1981, she opened their first department devoted entirely to dolls and automata, and in 1982 she staged the first-ever auction of teddy bears. Yearly world auction records followed, not only for teddy bears but also for dolls, culminating in the still unsurpassed world auction record of £188,000 for a German bisque doll from 1909 which she discovered and sold in 1994.

In 1988, Bunny left Sotheby’s full time employment to open her own Fine Art and Antiques Consultancy, engaged in valuing, buying and selling all forms of antiques on behalf of clients. She remained at Sotheby’s as a consultant until the end of 1996, and then joined Christie’s as a Senior Consultant until 2002 while still running her own business.

Bunny speaks French, Italian and a little Greek. Her hobbies include painting, bee-keeping, Bridge, tennis, skiing, salmon fishing, bird watching, cooking, classical music and opera. She lives on a nature reserve in Suffolk with her husband Iain Grahame who is an antiquarian book dealer, and she has two sons of her own, a stepson and daughter, two grandsons and six step-grandchildren.
