Is it real or reproduction? Whether you’ve wondered if the dining set you inherited is really an antique, or merely dreamt of hitting it big on “Antiques Roadshow,” the new “Antiques 101” Digging Deeper Tour could prove helpful. “Antiques 101” is a workshop-style tour during which participants can learn some of the basics on how to distinguish authentic colonial furniture from reproductions.
