Antiques Roadshow: Floors Castle 2
Antiques Roadshow, hosted by Fiona Bruce, returns to Floors Castle in south east Scotland, home of the Duke of Roxburghe. The visitors flock to the beautiful grounds on a glorious summer’s day, bringing treasures from home and away. A silver box commemorating Robert Burns and a watercolour of Bonnie Prince Charlie represent the best of Scottish antiques, while hand-painted ceramic tiles from Persia, a Nile travel guide and an 18th century travel clock take the programme around the world.
It’s a day of surprises for the experts too – two 3D pictures of birds punch above their weight, a breath-taking diamond and pearl pendant from Canada sparkles in the sunshine, while a jade figurine from Beijing may not be quite what it seems. But it’s a marble carving of a baby which is the hit of the day for Marc Allum
