Virtual ‘Antiques Roadshow’ Make An Offer

Published July 22, 2022

The acclaimed British television series Antiques Roadshow has been a mega-hit since it launched in 1979. The series has resulted in numerous international versions and, incredibly, is now in its 44th year in the U.K!

Why is it so appealing? Quite simply it gives anyone who has inherited something from a loved one, found a unique item in their attic, or fallen in love with an object at a moving sale the chance to discover the true value of their treasure. It’s wonderful to see the astonishment on peoples’ faces when they find out that what they thought was an ordinary, unwanted vase actually dates back to the Ming Dynasty – and is worth thousands!

There have been several million-pound valuations given on items appearing on Antiques Roadshow over the years. In 2017, a Faberge flower ornament, a six-inch gold, diamond and jade flower in a crystal vase was valued at £1 million. In 2004, a gold 20th century Patek Philippe pocket watch was originally valued at £250,000. Since then, it was sold at Sotheby’s for £1.5 million. And in 2013, a previously undiscovered Diego Rivera painting which was bought by someone’s great grandparents in 1930 is now worth between £1.2 million and £2.2 million.
