Steven Moore Biography – Steven Moore Wiki
Steven Moore is a TV Presenter, antiques expert, auctioneer, author and curator with a keen interest in ceramics. He is well-known for his appearances on the BBC’s ‘Antiques Roadshow’ and ‘Antiques Roadtrip.’ He has been a much-loved regular on BBC One’s BAFTA winning “Antiques Roadshow” since 2004. In 2019, Steven was invited to become a presenter on top rated daytime show Antiques Roadtrip, produced by Scottish Television for BBC One.
His passion for collecting started as a child. He told the BBC: “My father taught ceramics so I grew up with clay as a toy. The transformation of earth into an object of permanence has always fascinated me: I used to dig bottles from old tips and even skived off cross country at school to do this – bottles led to local pottery.” By the age of 16, Steven had curated his first exhibition at Newcastle’s Laing Art Gallery and he had written his first book by 21. After studying to be an archaeologist, he moved into antique dealing and writing.
Steven joined the Antiques Roadshow team in 2004 and counts among his favourite finds a self-portrait sculpture by Danish artist Jais Nielsen, which was discovered at Coventry Cathedral in 2007. However, one of his most memorable Roadshow moments would have to be at Norwich Cathedral in 2005 when he was presented with a bottle of Scotch whisky containing a dead mouse!
He has been an Antiques Dealer, Auctioneer and Museum Curator for many years. He was a consultant editor to Miller Publications revising, expanding and authenticating copy across a wide range of the publisher’s output, including the annual Price Guide, Collectables and other publications. He is the co-author (with Judith Miller) of Miller’s Field Guide to Porcelain and the Miller’s Field Guide to Glass.
He has written for magazines such as The World of Interiors, Country Life, Gardens Illustrated and Homes and Antiques. For many years he had a weekly column in the Newcastle Journal and a monthly one in North East Times.
During his career as an Antiques Dealer Steven was responsible for the rediscovery of many ‘lost’ treasures including a set of William Morris Tiles, now in the collection of The William Morris Gallery. A highlight of his life as an auctioneer was the re-discovery of the ‘Thornhill Stem Cup’, a rare Ming dynasty masterwork of early blue and white porcelain made for the Xuande Emperor which was sold for £3.6 million by Lyon and Turnbull in 2016.
