Antiques Roadshow: Cardiff Castle
Fiona Bruce and the team visit the iconic castle of the Welsh capital city of Cardiff. The castle grounds provide the perfect setting for a journey into the past
Fiona Bruce and the team visit the iconic castle of the Welsh capital city of Cardiff treasures ranging from a simple pottery jug given as a love token, to an early Hockney print found in a junk shop. But the star of the day must be an early draft score of Elgar’s Enigma Variations, signed by the composer.
Fiona Bruce and the team continue to scour the country in pursuit of hidden treasures, returning to Cardiff Castle in the Welsh capital. In this Victorian gothic setting, silver-specialist Gordon Foster is fascinated by an elaborately-decorated Indian flask, while John Benjamin reveals that what was thought to be costume jewellery is actually the real thing. Fiona is on the hunt for a lost 1933 penny worth a small fortune and Henry Sandon gets his hands on a piece of rare porcelain which he has been waiting 40 years to see. In Cardiff his dream comes true and he sets pulses racing with the valuation.
