Eric Knowles is a British television host and antiques expert. His favorite objects to collect are ceramics and glass.
In the early 1970s he started his career in the north of England. It was when he joined Antiques Roadshow that he first caught the attention of the BBC.
When he joined the London auction house Bonhams in 1979, the animator launched the “Art Nouveau” and “Art Deco” divisions.
On the other hand, he is the president of The Hoard Ltd., a company that also organizes antique tours. We also know the following about his wife, his teeth and his health.
Where did Eric Knowles’ teeth go?
Eric Knowles’ teeth are healthy and free from any problems. But if you look closely at his photos, you might notice that his teeth are a bit yellow and there are gaps between them.
Additionally, he first came to prominence as a ceramics expert on the BBC Antiques Roadshow. He has also appeared on shows like 20th Century Roadshow, Noel’s House Party, Call My Bluff, Going for a Song, and Going, Going, Gone.
During the summer of 2010 he hosted 20 episodes of the BBC show Restoration Roadshow (ending 3 September).
On BBC Two’s Antiques Master, he helps house Sandi Toksvig by setting challenges and making decisions.
Update on his illness and health problem related to leukemia
Eric Knowles examines how the NHS has changed over time as he reflects on a painful event from his childhood. Eric was nine years old when he was told he had leukemia. He spent six weeks in the hospital.
Even though he was alone, there were good things about it, and the toys he received made him want to collect for the rest of his life.
They act on this situation by sending a 1960s ambulance and a retired paramedic on the same route Eric would have taken to get to the hospital.
After several weeks of testing, leukemia was finally ruled out and glandular fever was found to be the cause.
Although he was quite ill, he saved his family from contracting a fatal disease. Oncologist Dr. Margaret Rokicka helped Eric understand how such a mistake could have happened.

At the time of the 2013 interview, they had been happily together for over 21 years.
Eric opened up about his personal life, saying, “My wife Anita and I have lived here for 13 years, and my personal space has always been reading.”
