In the age of “reality” shows like Antiques Roadshow and Pawn Stars, when appraisers are minor celebrities and every grandmother’s attic seems to contain at least one semi-precious vase or imposter impressionist, it often appears as if determining the worth of a thing – any thing – takes little more than a quick once-over by the right person.
