Short biography
John Bly is an antiques dealer, author, after-dinner speaker and broadcaster who is best known from the BBC Antiques Roadshow (UK). His career began with Sotheby's, where he worked for four years before joining his family business in Tring (John Bly Antiques, started by John Bly's great grandfather). He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. Suggestions that Bly appeared in the horror film Vampires (1986) prior to his stint in the antique and auctions trade, are almost certainly untrue and are refuted by his son Julian. This must refer to another "John Bly". John Bly appeared on the highly popular BBC1 chat show "Wogan" in the late 1980's, during the height of his Antiques Road Show fame, and entertained the viewing millions by playing a pair of antique silver spoons as musical instruments.
