Antiques Roadshow Series 39: Burton Constable
Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team head to Burton Constable Hall near Hull, a property filled with family legends and treasures, including a remarkable cabinet of curiosities.
Part 1: Burton Constable 1
Objects brought in by visitors are just as diverse, including a ship’s anchor found in a garden pond and a medal given for heroism to a local sailor who helped break Captain Scott’s ship out of Antarctic ice in 1901. There is also a rare example of early flat-pack furniture dating back to the 17th century.
Part 2: Burton Constable 2
The award for most curious acquisition of the day must go to a bronze figure which was swapped for fish and chip suppers. And one family bring in 1,500 shoe buckles obsessively collected by a late husband. His investment proved to be a wise decision, however, when expert Judith Miller delivers the valuation.
