It is somewhat fitting that while filming the 40th anniversary series of the Antiques Roadshow, one of the most significant finds in its history has been made at the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, West Midlands. According to a report in the Express & Star, the object in question is a Faberge ornament which is shaped like a stem of flowers. It is so rare that expert Geoffrey Munn valued the treasure at around £1million. 50 year old Dan Bansal, who observed the valuation, told the regional newspaper: “The expert said it’s probably the second time he’s ever done that type of valuation. I think he was reluctant to say £1 million and nervous to say it was worth that much.” As the show is due to go on air later this year, executive producer Simon Shaw is on spolier alert only saying that, “We’ve had one of the most significant jewellery finds in 40 years of Antiques Roadshow history – but we don’t want to spoil the surprise.” Spoil sport. Are you Shaw you can’t be persuaded?
