Hello and welcome to For What It's Worth, the only show to
test your quizzing credentials and your ability in antiques.
Three pairs of contestants are ready to play and each team has a
Quizzer who has to answer a general knowledge question correctly
so that their partner, the Picker,
has a chance to choose an antique or collectable and build a collection.
The aim of the game is to amass the most valuable collection,
and joining me in the studio today, the queen of the curios,
it's our resident antiques expert, the wonderful Anita Manning.
-How lovely to see you.
-Lovely to be here, Fern.
-Very nice to see you.
So, Anita, what have we got on offer today?
We have a coffee set.
A card case.
A tiffin tin.
And some salts.
Now, one of these items is our top lot,
which is worth a whopping £2,500, and that is the lot to spot
because, at the end of the show, the winning pair will walk away
with the cash equivalent of one of their items.
But beware, because the lots decrease in value right down
to our worthless lot, which is worth a tenner or less,
and that is the lot to avoid.
So who's playing today?
Team 1, who are you?
Hi, my name is Sital and this is my best friend Alettia.
-We're from Gloucestershire.
-And we met through our love of quizzes.
Very nice to meet you and good luck.
Team 2, who are you?
I'm Roxy and this is my gorgeous husband John.
I direct local theatre and Roxy assists me in that.
Very nice to meet you, Team 2.
And welcome, Team 3, who are you?
Hello, I'm Andy and this is my friend Bill.
And we met in the police force when I was his sergeant.
How exciting. Good luck.
Earlier, our teams got to inspect our lots and they were watched over
by Anita, but could they separate the antique from the dirt cheap?
Right, then, so this is it.
These beautiful candlesticks.
-The painting's very good.
They think the metal's gold.
Salt. It says "Max" and "Ethel".
-It's a silver hallmark, so I'd say that's silver.
-OK, it will go to the value of the gemstones in there.
-It's got pearls.
-But he sees the quality.
A man of taste.
-I like the hands on there, though.
Is it working, do you reckon, or do you think it's broken?
No, it seems to have stopped.
-What do you think of the metal?
-Is that a gold watch?
I'm not sure it is.
SHARP INTAKE OF BREATH
-Right, painting. This is gorgeous.
-Let's look for an autograph.
I can't see any signature.
There's something there, a little bit of a signature.
Is it possible to look on the back of the canvas? Oh, here we go.
Yes! Well done, Sital.
It's always good to look at the back of a picture.
-I don't like it so it's probably worth a lot of money.
-These figurines, they're interesting.
-A set of four.
-That's going to add to the value of them.
Oh, she thinks they're horrible. Horrible!
Excellent detail in the faces.
Is one of them representing, like, summer, winter?
It could well possibly be four seasons,
but I like these because of the intricacy of the patterns.
They are recognising some of the quality.
"A signed BEA Silverwing menu."
-The signatures must be adding value to it.
Signed by who?
I can't make out the signature at all.
-Silver card case.
-Is it silver?
-Yeah, there is a hallmark.
Have a wee look at the work that's involved in it.
You've got to think about the pictures that are on it.
-Now that looks like Windsor Castle, doesn't it?
-Yeah, it does.
The coffee set is beautiful.
Age-wise, I'd say 1950s.
-We're missing some lids.
-OK, so it's not complete.
-Would that matter?
-It is very nice.
-Now this I like.
-It's called a tiffin tin.
You'd have one, two, three courses of food.
-It's just a piece of junk.
-OK, let's move on.
Right, let's have a look at this coin. Could be Roman.
There's a lot of wear to it, isn't there?
-Looks like it's silver.
-It's not in the best of condition. Look at it.
-What is a chatelaine?
-I'm not sure.
I don't know what it is. It's some sort of dress piece.
-On a belt?
-Ah, clever girl, clever girl.
-I don't think that is very exciting.
My top lot, I think, is the candlesticks.
I'm going to go with the painting.
I go for the figurines.
-Bottom lot I'm going to go with the tiffin tin.
-The tiffin tin.
-Say the chatelaine.
Those candlesticks are not bad too, you know.
Anita, that must be fun spying on them. What did you think of them?
I thought our teams were splendid,
but they may have missed one or two wee hints.
And how have we arrived at the valuation here for these antiques?
The values for each lot have been agreed between myself
and an independent valuer.
They're based on the hammer price we would expect them
to reach at auction but with no auction costs added.
Thank you very much, Anita.
Just to add an extra twist, we have our mystery lot.
Now it could be worth thousands, or it could be worth peanuts,
but that is for our winners to decide a little bit later.
But for now, it's time for Round 1.
I'm going to ask eight general knowledge questions.
Now, Pickers, before each one,
I'll ask you to select which lot you'd like to play for,
and, Quizzers, if you buzz in with a correct answer,
well, you'll get to add that to your collection.
But, beware, because if you buzz in incorrectly,
you'll be frozen out of the next question.
So, Pickers, would you please make your first pick?
Let's see what you've chosen.
Sital and Alettia have gone for the painting,
John and Roxy for the candlesticks
and Andy and Bill for the figures.
Quizzers, fingers on buzzers, here comes question number one.
Espadrilles are usually worn...
-On the feet.
Espadrilles are usually worn on which part of the body?
-You said feet. Correct. The painting is yours.
-Get in there!
As easy as that, eh? OK.
Pickers, make a pick.
Sital and Alettia have gone for the menu,
John and Roxy for the candlesticks
and Andy and Bill sticking with the figures.
The theme park Dollywood is named...
The theme park Dollywood is named after which US entertainer?
-It is Dolly Parton. The menu is yours.
-There it goes.
Pickers, make a pick.
Sital and Alettia have gone for the candlesticks, as have John and Roxy.
Andy and Bill sticking with the figures.
By what abbreviation is deoxyribonucleic...
By what abbreviation is deoxyribonucleic acid better known?
And it is DNA.
Sital and Alettia, the candlesticks are yours.
-Let everyone else have a go!
-I'm trying, I'm trying.
Pickers, make a pick.
You have all gone for the figures. So who's going to get them?
What is the name of the 1902 landmark New York building famous...
-Empire State Building.
What is the name of the 1902 landmark New York building
famous for being shaped like a triangle?
The answer is the Flatiron Building.
You're now frozen out of this question.
Roxy and Bill, make a pick.
Still sticking with the figures, OK.
Quizzers, in 2006,
the cricketer Mark Ramprakash won which television...
-Strictly Come Dancing.
In 2006, the cricketer Mark Ramprakash won which TV competition?
It is Strictly Come Dancing. You are correct. The figures are yours,
and they are going to start your collection.
Sital and Alettia, you're back into this one. So, Pickers, make a pick.
Sital and Alettia have gone for the coin,
John and Roxy for the chatelaine
and Andy and Bill for the brooch.
The Gobi Desert stretches across China and which...
The Gobi Desert stretches across China and which other country?
The answer is Mongolia. The brooch, Andy and Bill, is yours.
Pickers, make a pick.
Sital and Alettia have gone for the coin again,
John and Roxy for the chatelaine,
but Andy and Bill are going for the watch.
On the London Underground, which line is coloured green?
-Um, Circle line.
It's the District line.
You're frozen out.
Here we are, final question in this round. Pickers, make a pick.
John and Roxy for the chatelaine again,
Andy and Bill sticking with the watch.
Which awards ceremony first took place at the Hollywood Roosevelt...
-The full question.
Which awards ceremony first took place at the Hollywood Roosevelt
Hotel on 16 May 1929?
It was indeed the Oscars.
The watch is in your collection.
At the end of Round 1, Sital and Alettia have the painting,
the candlesticks and the menu.
John and Roxy, nothing's taken their eye yet. They're just waiting.
Andy and Bill, they have the figures, the watch and the brooch.
Now, our teams have started to build their collections
but have they chosen wisely?
Well, before they have the chance to add more of them,
Anita is going to give each pair a fact about a lot of their choice.
So, let's start with Sital and Alettia. Sital, what do you do?
I own a convenience store
and right next door to my shop is a Banksy painting.
Oh, my goodness!
I was literally two minutes away from seeing him paint it.
He was just packing up and leaving and I saw a marquee.
It was cordoned off and I thought crime scene
and thought nothing more of it.
And then about 20 minutes later, the Banksy was up and running.
Incredible. And tell me about yourself, Alettia. What do you do?
I run a music teaching business with my husband.
How wonderful. Do you play everything?
I play nothing.
But my husband plays everything. He's fantastic.
But I help with all the admin side of it.
What would you like to know more about from Anita?
-I would like to know, please, about the chatelaine.
This is a chased and engraved gilt chatelaine
dating from circa 1750.
The French word chatelaine was originally used to describe
the set of chains designed to have all the tools necessary for a woman,
such as keys and sewing needles.
Eventually they were adopted by men for use as watch chains
and this particular piece has an image of a lyre and other musical
instruments, suggesting it was made for a musically minded person.
John and Roxy, welcome to you. John, what do you do?
Well, full-time, I work in insurance, but I mentioned earlier
I direct local theatre.
You're a very artistic theatrical insurance man, surely?
I came to it late.
And, Roxy, what do you collect?
It collect Swedish, Scandinavian glassware,
collectable bits that are unusual and quirky.
You'll be interested in this, Anita, because you do have
a very good eye - particularly for a poster that you spotted.
When we had a shop, years ago, in Brighton, um,
I went next door to borrow some tea and she'd put this big poster up.
And it was an original from Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid.
So I said, "Wow, I love that." She said, "Oh, do you want to buy it?"
So we met at about £180
and a gentleman came into the shop
and they said, "Yes, we'll have that" -
So that was a good mark-up!
-That was good, wasn't it?!
Now, which lot would you like to know more about?
-I think I would like to know more about the coin.
This is a half-groat from the reign of Edward VI
from around 1547
One side shows the bust of the King looking to the right with
the shield of arms depicted on the other.
It is worn and a bit weak,
although I imagine
if I was nearly 500 years old,
I'd be feeling a bit worn and weak, too!
There is of course a big market
for old coins, but it's rarity that can often add the zeros
onto the end of the price tag.
Mmm, there's a lot to think about, there.
And now we say welcome to Andy and Bill, lovely to have you here.
So, Andy, you're a founder of a very good quiz team.
I am, but you wouldn't think so when you hear the name.
It's the Exmoor Muppets!
-But it's the fun, isn't it?
-It's the fun of taking part, yes.
And, Bill, what do you like to look for
when you're going round a flea market?
I'm interested in African art.
I've got a lovely pair of...
-fertility bowls from East Africa.
Matching bowls, that kind of thing.
-Do they work?
-Someone's worked over.
Oh, I hope not!
Thank you both very much indeed.
What would you like to know more about from Anita?
I'd like to know about the brooch.
This is a Victorian handmade pearl and turquoise brooch
from around 1880,
featuring two intertwined hearts.
The big question with any jewellery containing pearls is
whether they are natural or cultivated.
Natural ones tend to be more desirable and fetch the higher
prices, and the ones in this brooch do fall into that category.
So, I hope that helped. Hm?
It's time now to play Round 2.
In this round, the Pickers will select a lot to play for
and the Quizzers will again try
and secure it by answering correctly, but this time around,
the lots come with their own question categories,
and here they are.
So, for example, if you wanted the coffee set,
your Quizzer would be allowed to pick a question from either
Greek Mythology or Soundtracks.
Now, at the end of this round, the team with the least valuable
collection will be eliminated, so choose wisely.
Team 1, you're up first, so,
Alettia, pick a lot for me.
I would like to choose the card case, please.
The card case.
So, Sital, Boxing or Soundtracks?
Um, I'll take Soundtracks, please.
Here's your question.
I've Had The Time Of My Life
features on the soundtrack to which 1987 film?
Oh, I love this film, Dirty Dancing!
It IS Dirty Dancing!
The card case is yours. Excellent.
-John and Roxy, your turn. Roxy, what would you like?
-The coin, please.
The coin. Boxing or Maths, John?
-Here we go.
In November 2015, Tyson Fury took the title of
World Heavyweight Champion after defeating which opponent?
Well done. The coin is yours.
-Andy and Bill. Bill, what's your pick?
-The chatelaine, please.
The chatelaine. Languages or British Television Drama, Andy?
British Television Drama, please.
What was the name of the 1981 Evelyn Waugh adaptation
starring Jeremy Irons?
Correct! The chatelaine is yours.
Teams, you may have missed out on that one thing that you
really want, so if so, here's your chance to get your hands on it.
From now on, you can either go for what's left on the grid
or you can try to steal a lot
that is in a rival team's collection.
Think about it, this is strategic.
But, Pickers, be warned - if you choose to steal from another team,
THEY will get to choose which category your Quizzer must face.
You cannot steal from a team who has only one lot in their collection.
So, Team 1, Sital and Alettia,
do you want to pick from the grid or steal from a rival?
-I would like to steal, please!
-What would you like?
The figures, OK - they're in Andy and Bill's collection,
so, Andy and Bill, which category would you like to give Sital?
Sital, here you go.
Who wrote the 1950 novel The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe?
Clive Staples Lewis.
That was spot-on!
Of course, most of us only know him as CS Lewis.
-How do you know that?
-It's my favourite book of all time!
You know, when I'm not working 12 or 13 hours a day,
I always imagine when it's raining that I can go into the wardrobe
and get to Narnia and get some Turkish delight!
Right, the figures are yours - I'm sorry, Andy and Bill,
you've lost them.
John and Roxy, pick or steal?
Er, steal, I think.
What would you like?
I might try and get the figurines.
OK, Sital and Alettia,
what category do you think John is going to have trouble with?
-Let's test the old grey matter and give him Maths.
-All right, John.
Which is the only prime number between five and 11?
Correct, it is seven. Well done, John and Roxy.
The figurines are coming out of Sital and Alettia's collection
and into yours.
Andy and Bill, are you going to pick or steal?
I'd like to steal the candlesticks.
The candlesticks, in Sital and Alettia's collection.
-OK, Sital, Alettia - try and defend your candlesticks.
Um, Soundtracks, please.
In 2016, Sam Smith became the second winner of an Oscar for a Bond theme.
-Who was the first?
Incorrect. It was Adele.
Well defended, Sital and Alettia.
-Pick or steal?
why don't we steal the figures back?!
Why not?! John and Roxy,
pick a category for Sital!
-Boxing. Here we go, Sital.
The boxing match known as the Rumble in the Jungle took place
in 1974 in which country?
The thriller in Manila.
Country, country, country... It's not... Argentina, sorry, it's gone.
Argentina, no - Zaire.
Unlucky, but well defended, John and Roxy.
John and Roxy, pick or steal?
-I'd like to steal the candlesticks, please.
-Sital and Alettia...?
-Let's give them Soundtracks.
Soundtracks, John, here we go.
Which singer spent 16 weeks at number one with
the theme to the film Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves?
I'm sorry, time up.
You got the Bryan bit right, Adams.
-I knew that! I knew that!
Candlesticks are safe, Sital and Alettia.
Right, Andy and Bill, pick or steal?
I think we'll go for the candlesticks as well.
-Ooh, have a steal!
-You all want my candlesticks!
-Sital and Alettia...?
-What category for Andy?
-Greek Mythology...? Greek Mythology, please.
OK, Andy - Greek Mythology.
Who was the Greek goddess of victory?
It IS Nike.
You have got those candlesticks and they're coming to you. Well!
That is the end of that round,
a little bloodied and bruised,
I think! So let's see how the collections are looking.
Sital and Alettia have got
the painting, the card case
and the menu.
John and Roxy have the coin
and the figures, and Andy and Bill
have the brooch, the chatelaine,
the candlesticks and the watch.
OK, for one team, it is now the end of the road
and the team with the least valuable collection will now be eliminated.
So, Anita, who is leaving us first?
The pair leaving us first is...
-..Andy and Bill.
Well, not only are you leaving the game, sadly,
but all those things in your collection are also coming back
to us, but of course you want to know what they're worth, don't you?
Andy and Bill, your brooch,
with the seed pearls and turquoise,
it is Victorian, but...
Your chatelaine, a nice thing,
but it's only worth
Now, the watch dates from the 18th century,
it is French in origin and you can almost imagine it being sported
round the streets of Paris. It is set in a gold case -
with its ornate hands and white enamel dial,
this is a striking piece.
And it is worth
So it was a lovely thing to choose
and a high-value item.
Your fourth item,
Rococo porcelain candlesticks,
which have been hopping back and forwards...
..through all the teams...
Rococo epitomised grandeur and luxury in European style
and the growing fascination with natural landscapes, which is evident
in the floral sprays and porcelain body
of these candlesticks.
The value on these rococo candlesticks,
So it was a good pick.
So altogether, the collection is worth...
What a wonderful total for a losing team.
Andy and Bill, it's been a pleasure to have you, thank you
so much for playing For What It's Worth.
And also the unclaimed items in the grid are now leaving the game,
so let's quickly find out from Anita what they are worth
-and if the top lot is still in the game.
-First up is the Tiffin tin.
Tiffin tins, or dabbas, are a kind of lunchbox
used widely in south Asia.
It is made out of steel
and would have kept food warm for several hours.
Value on that?
Now, you all love this retro Poole coffee set,
but not enough to pick it.
It dates back from the 1960s.
It comes with two pots, six cups,
six saucers, two unique bowls
and five small plates,
so this may not be a complete and full set.
Poole pottery was by no means rare,
as the company was a prolific manufacturer.
Well, none of you were tempted and the value is only...
So, let's move on to the salts.
Ideally, salts such as these would come complete with a spoon or
miniature shovel that would have been used to serve the salt.
Now, these are engraved with the names
of Max and Ethel.
We don't know who Max and Ethel were!
But it's possible that they were a couple who were gifted these
to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary.
But as we know, collectors love things that come in a pair.
So, what does that mean for their value?
And therefore worthless.
So, is the £2,500 item still in play?
It's still there, Fern.
Teams, congratulations on getting this far.
You now have one last chance to pick our expert's brains,
so which lot do you need to know more about? Team 1.
I would like to know more about the figures, please.
Everyone loved the figures.
This is a set of Derby porcelain Chelsea figures,
representative of the four seasons.
They were made circa 1770 by the celebrated modeller Pierre Stephan.
Collectors of porcelain figurines
will know only too well how hard
it is to assemble full sets and here we have the complete group.
That's got our minds going, hasn't it?
Team 2, John and Roxy, what would you like to hear more about?
I would like to hear more about the painting, please.
This painting is entitled Sunday Morning, Kings Road, Chelsea.
It was painted by Harold Workman,
a 20th-century British painter who worked in oils and watercolour.
His paintings are mainly of architectural subjects,
but he dabbled in canal and water scenes.
Workman's art is comparatively affordable, but since his death
in 1975, his work has become more sought-after
than it ever was.
We just don't know, do we?
But I do know that it's time for our final round
and at the end of this, we'll have our winners.
In this round, I'll show you a category and 12 possible answers.
Now, nine of the answers are correct, three of them are not.
Each of you will then take turns to choose an answer that you
think is correct.
As it's the final round, both Quizzers and Pickers will play,
so there's nowhere to hide.
Pick a wrong answer
and your opponents will be able to steal a lot from your collection.
We'll play three questions in total.
The pair with the most valuable collection can choose to go
first or second on this one, so, Anita, who is that at the moment?
The team who has the most valuable collection so far
Sital and Alettia.
OK. Team 1, the first question is...
-Would you like to go first or second?
-We'll go first, please.
Here are the answers.
-Sital, give me an answer.
-I'd like to go with Tipperary, please.
It's correct. It's a long way to Tipperary, by the way.
John, an answer, please.
-Mayo. Is that correct?
Yes, it's in the north-west. Alettia.
-I'm going to go with Clare.
On the west coast. That is correct.
Kerry. Is that correct?
Yes, it's in the south-west. Sital.
Also the name of a city, an Irish city, well done.
John, you're next.
Of course that's correct, that's the largest county. Alettia.
Correct! Right in the centre of Ireland. Roxy.
Pressure's on now, isn't it?
Pure guess, is it Pinta?
-It's actually the name of Christopher Columbus' ship.
OK, let's have a look at the other wrong answers. Acklins.
It's a small island in the Bahamas. Silverside is a cut of beef!
Right, Sital and Alettia, you are free to steal from John and Roxy.
It's a no-brainer, isn't it?
Let's take the figurines!
I'd like to take the figurines!
You also said it was the four seasons, which is
-what she confirmed.
-Yes, please could we have the figures?
The figures are certainly going into your collection.
Sorry, John and Roxy.
OK, Team 2, this is your chance.
Your question is...
Can you spot the real names of Trees, Plants and Flowers?
-Would you like to take this first or second?
Here we go, here are the answers.
-John, give me an answer.
Is that correct?
Yes. It's a herb.
-With a flowered hood. Sital.
Let's try monkey puzzle tree.
Monkey puzzle tree.
It's correct, of course. Roxy.
-Yellow skunk cabbage.
-Yellow skunk cabbage.
Known for its skunky odour!
I would like to go with the corpse flower, please,
which I believe is that very big one that smells horrendous.
Yes, correct, and it is exactly that, named for its smell. John.
Correct. Poisonous to cattle and sheep. Sital?
Right, clutching at straws, I think there may be a jack in the box.
Jack in the box.
It is of course the toy.
Let's see, the remaining wrong answers, let's see where they are.
Death in the afternoon,
it's actually a cocktail invented by Ernest Hemingway.
And Bottoms Fold is a place in Ashton-under-Lyne.
Right, John and Roxy - have a little think...
Yes, I want my porcelain figures back, please!
Taking the figurines back - here they come into your collection.
Third and final question goes to Team 1, and here it is.
It's all on this.
Barbra Streisand Films.
-Sital and Alettia, would you like to go first or second?
-My favourite subject, films!
Here are the answers.
Yes, she plays the title character and directed it, too, didn't she?
Correct, she plays Fanny Brice. Alettia.
-Love Me Like You Do.
-Love Me Like You Do.
-Incorrect. That is an Ellie Goulding song!
Let's have a look first of all at the other wrong answers.
and Sad Cypress is an Agatha Christie novel.
John and Roxy, a pivotal moment in the game,
you are going to steal from Sital and Alettia - what would you like?
-Even just really ordinary paintings can fetch a lot of money.
We'd like to go to the painting, please.
The painting is coming into your collection, John and Roxy.
OK, your collections are now complete and fixed
and will determine which team is victorious.
Anita, who are today's winners?
It was a roller-coaster
and I can reveal the pair with the most valuable collection...
..are John and Roxy!
Congratulations, John and Roxy,
and, Sital and Alettia, you have played so well,
but you didn't quite create the valuable enough collection.
Anita, please talk about the lots that they're not taking home.
First up is the lovely Victorian sterling silver card case.
It is chased on both sides with respective
scenes of Windsor Castle and Westminster Abbey.
The quality of the embossing is excellent.
Items from this series are very collectable
because of the historic interest and the high level of craftsmanship.
The value on the card case, £1,400.
It was a wonderful choice.
Next up is the menu from a BEA flight
from the mid-1950s.
A menu on its own that can't be attributed to a specific flight
isn't of much interest - however, this one is special.
Because it's signed, and signed by none other than Winston Churchill.
You can almost picture him on board the flight, cigar in one hand,
cream cracker laced with Stilton in the other.
And that is where the value lies,
in the item's provenance.
So well done, folks, for choosing that.
So, Anita, the total value of Sital and Alettia's collection is...?
You really did choose some wonderful items there, Sital and Alettia.
Thank you so much for playing For What It's Worth.
Thank you for having us.
Well done, John and Roxy, you are today's winners
and we know that the top lot is somewhere in your collection.
All that remains is for you to claim your prize.
Pick one of the lots in your collection
and we will give you its value in cash.
So which one do you want to choose?
The figurines, you've got four there...
-And as Anita says, it's so hard to get the set.
-A complete set.
We mustn't forget the coin, but where I work, it's a
little village and there are lots of antique shops,
and there's one in particular that has a lot of that in there
and I'm always surprised how little money they actually go for.
So I think...
My gut feeling is the picture. The painting.
-Yes, we're both going for the painting.
-Final answer is the painting.
Right, before we tell you its worth, Anita,
can you please tell us what they haven't won?
You have discarded this coin,
like an old brown penny!
This coin is 500 years old!
And coins are hot, hot, hot
in today's market.
This coin is worth...
-Not the top lot.
The second lot that you discarded were the wonderful Derby
porcelain Chelsea figures.
These are 18th-century figures,
these are in perfect condition,
these are the full group of four,
by one of the most prestigious
modellers for one of the most
prestigious porcelain firms.
Did you make the right decision?
The value of these figures is £2,000.
Your chosen lot, the painting...
is the top lot, worth £2,500!
But can we tempt you with our mystery lot,
which may be worth even more?
John and Roxy, here is your lot.
Now, we know it is the top lot,
we know it's worth £2,500,
but the game is not over yet.
Anita is going to tempt you with today's mystery lot.
Anita, what have we got?
-What is that?
-It's obviously a costume of some sort.
Made up of a few straps of material and a pair of very small shorts.
But it's not so much the material that you should be
focusing on here, but more the Material Girl.
This is one of Madonna's original costumes
from her 1992 Blonde Ambition tour.
This one was designed by Jean-Paul Gauthier. He also designed
the conical bra outfits Madonna is famous for wearing.
But what's it worth?
Oh, Anita, you describe it so amazingly, it sort of draws us in.
So it's quite tempting, isn't it?
-I think it's worth more, but I don't want to risk it.
£2,500 is a lot of money -
I'm just worried about being greedy.
-I don't think I'd like to swap.
-No, I agree with you.
-I think we'll keep what we've got.
-Don't be cross with me, though!
-OK, final answer, stick with this...
-..admittedly beautiful painting.
-Absolutely. Thank you.
But what have you rejected?
It's just a minimalist piece of cloth
..it has been worn by the Queen of Pop. But...!
It's not one of the iconic costumes.
..It was designed by one of the most famous
I can reveal to you...
..that this Madonna costume...
That's not too bad.
But you are still going home with £2,500,
because you found our top lot.
Thank you so much, and thank you, Anita - you really took us
all the way through back and beyond.
Listen, thank you very much indeed for watching,
we'll see you next time, when more teams will be trying to spot
the lot to win the lot on For What It's Worth. Goodbye for now.
Well played! Very, very well played.
