Hello, and welcome to For What It's Worth,

0:00:150:00:18

the show that quizzes you with questions

0:00:180:00:20

and tempts you with antiques.

0:00:200:00:22

We have three pairs of contestants who are ready to play

0:00:220:00:25

and each team has a quizzer who has to answer

0:00:250:00:27

a general knowledge question correctly, of course,

0:00:270:00:29

so that their partner, the picker, has a chance

0:00:290:00:32

to choose an antique or collectible and build a collection.

0:00:320:00:35

And the aim of the game is simple -

0:00:350:00:37

it's to amass the most valuable collection.

0:00:370:00:39

So, here on the show, we are all about the knowledge

0:00:390:00:42

and all about the know-how,

0:00:420:00:44

and one person who has both in abundance is our resident expert.

0:00:440:00:47

-It's the wonderful Charles Hanson.

-Hello, Fern. Hello.

0:00:470:00:50

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

-Oh, I say. Oh, don't! Hello.

0:00:500:00:52

Hello. Hello.

0:00:520:00:54

-Charles, lovely to see you.

-You too, Fern.

0:00:550:00:57

Please tell us about the lots we're playing for today.

0:00:570:01:00

Fern, certainly. Teams, for your contention today,

0:01:000:01:03

we have the following -

0:01:030:01:04

a tool,

0:01:040:01:06

a vinaigrette,

0:01:060:01:08

earrings,

0:01:080:01:10

a plant pot,

0:01:100:01:12

candlesticks,

0:01:120:01:14

a coach set,

0:01:140:01:17

a salt cellar,

0:01:170:01:18

a table,

0:01:180:01:20

a coin,

0:01:200:01:22

a poster,

0:01:220:01:24

a plate,

0:01:240:01:26

and finally, a medal.

0:01:260:01:28

Mm-hm. Interesting and eclectic, yes.

0:01:290:01:32

Now, one of those items is our top lot,

0:01:320:01:35

which is worth a whopping £2,500.

0:01:350:01:37

That is, of course, the lot to spot because, at the end of the show,

0:01:370:01:40

the winning pair will walk away with the cash equivalent

0:01:400:01:43

of one of the items in their collection.

0:01:430:01:45

But beware because the lots decrease in value

0:01:450:01:48

right down to our worthless lot, which is worth a tenner or less.

0:01:480:01:53

That, of course, is the lot to avoid.

0:01:530:01:56

So, who's playing today? Let's meet our teams.

0:01:560:01:58

Team One, welcome. Who are you?

0:01:580:02:00

Hi, Fern. My name's Amanda

0:02:000:02:02

and I'm teamed today with my husband Mark.

0:02:020:02:05

We are avid antique collectors from Porthcawl in South Wales.

0:02:050:02:09

Welcome and good luck. Team Two, who are you?

0:02:090:02:12

Oh, hello, Fern. My name's Rhiannon and this is my friend Lisa.

0:02:120:02:15

We met nearly 20 years ago at antenatal classes

0:02:150:02:18

and have been really good friends ever since.

0:02:180:02:20

Good luck and welcome. Team Three, who are you?

0:02:200:02:22

Hi, Fern. My name's Michelle and this is my husband Alan.

0:02:220:02:26

And we met many, many years ago

0:02:260:02:28

when we used to work at the police station

0:02:280:02:30

and we started our relationship by flirting in the cafeteria.

0:02:300:02:34

Well, there's no better place to flirt than a police cafeteria.

0:02:340:02:38

-Absolutely.

-I hope one of you wasn't

0:02:380:02:40

the arresting officer, that's all. LAUGHTER

0:02:400:02:42

Welcome, everybody, and jolly good luck.

0:02:420:02:44

Now, earlier, our teams got to inspect our lots,

0:02:440:02:47

watched over by our expert,

0:02:470:02:49

but could they separate the high-end from the high street?

0:02:490:02:52

Let's see.

0:02:520:02:53

Wow, what a lovely room.

0:02:550:02:58

Wow.

0:02:580:02:59

OK.

0:02:590:03:01

This is interesting. Pick that up and have a look at the base.

0:03:040:03:09

Handle with care. Hold on, handle with care.

0:03:090:03:11

-Clarice Cliff, Bizarre.

-I like that.

-Beautiful.

0:03:110:03:13

-These seem to go quite well, don't they?

-Yes.

0:03:130:03:16

-LISA:

-I think it looks Indian.

0:03:170:03:19

North African.

0:03:190:03:20

-Or Arabic.

-Why is it Arabic? That's an interesting word.

0:03:200:03:23

The inlay is suffering, isn't it?

0:03:230:03:26

-RHIANNON:

-I'm drawn to the design of that.

0:03:270:03:29

-I don't know much about that sort of thing. What about you?

-No.

0:03:290:03:32

But this is a collectible area, isn't it?

0:03:320:03:34

-Do you think it's worth a bit?

-It will be to the right collector.

0:03:340:03:37

The state coach.

0:03:390:03:41

-Have you seen something like that?

-Aw, that's beautiful.

0:03:410:03:44

-With a box.

-Yeah.

0:03:440:03:45

With a box, you're quite right. We like a completeness.

0:03:450:03:48

Well, I don't know much for this one.

0:03:500:03:53

Any marks on the back?

0:03:530:03:54

Well, it's metal, isn't it?

0:03:540:03:56

-ALAN:

-It's not been finalised.

0:03:560:03:57

Somebody's taken that out and they've actually hand-painted it.

0:03:570:04:00

So, you think it's a second? It's a blank?

0:04:000:04:03

The medal. Something we know very little about.

0:04:050:04:08

What's the writing on the side there?

0:04:080:04:10

"Battalion of The Grenadier Guards."

0:04:100:04:11

Grenadier Guard, well done.

0:04:110:04:13

There won't be many of those about, that's for sure.

0:04:130:04:15

OK, let's have a look at the candlesticks.

0:04:170:04:19

-Can't see any marks.

-Yeah, there is.

-Is there?

-Just here. Look.

0:04:190:04:23

I don't think it's a hallmark.

0:04:230:04:24

-Are they worthless?

-Worthless?!

0:04:240:04:27

-Some kind of a woodworking measuring tool, isn't it?

-Is it?

0:04:290:04:32

It looks like some sort of draughtsman's tool, doesn't it?

0:04:320:04:36

-Would it be very...antiquey?

-Not really.

0:04:360:04:40

Some tools, Michelle, can be worth a small fortune.

0:04:400:04:42

Goodness me, the salt cellar.

0:04:440:04:46

That's very unusual, isn't it?

0:04:460:04:48

That would go well in the cottage, that would.

0:04:480:04:51

I wouldn't say that's of any great value, though.

0:04:510:04:53

-What about the coin?

-Ooh, yes.

-That looks really old. Is it Roman?

0:04:550:04:59

I wonder how long that'd been in the ground.

0:04:590:05:01

It looks...old, to say the least.

0:05:010:05:04

Ooh, the vinaigrette.

0:05:060:05:07

No, you can't have it. It's theirs.

0:05:080:05:10

So, look at that. That is absolutely amazing.

0:05:100:05:13

It's lovely, but...it's tiny.

0:05:130:05:16

They say small is beautiful, but is it the most valuable?

0:05:160:05:19

They look very 1960s, don't they?

0:05:200:05:22

Marina, does it say?

0:05:220:05:24

"Cartier."

0:05:240:05:26

Cart...Cartier?

0:05:260:05:28

Top lot, I would say the carriage.

0:05:280:05:32

Bottom lot, the salt cellar.

0:05:320:05:34

Top one, vinaigrette. Bottom one, the tool.

0:05:340:05:37

I think top item, medal. Bottom item, tool.

0:05:370:05:40

Yeah, OK, job done. I'm happy with that.

0:05:400:05:43

So, you were spying on them, Charles.

0:05:450:05:48

I really enjoyed it, Fern. It was wonderful to watch.

0:05:480:05:50

And how do you come to the valuation of these objects?

0:05:500:05:53

The values for each lot have been agreed between myself

0:05:530:05:57

and an independent valuer.

0:05:570:05:59

They're based on the hammer price

0:05:590:06:01

we would expect them to reach at auction,

0:06:010:06:04

but with no auction costs added.

0:06:040:06:06

So, when I say, "Sold," that's the price they would fetch.

0:06:060:06:10

OK, and just to add an extra twist, we have our mystery lot.

0:06:100:06:14

It could be worth thousands or it could be worth peanuts,

0:06:140:06:17

but that is for our winners to decide later.

0:06:170:06:20

So, for now, it's time for Round 1.

0:06:200:06:22

APPLAUSE

0:06:220:06:26

Now, I'm going to ask eight general knowledge questions.

0:06:260:06:29

Pickers, before each one, I will ask you to select which lot

0:06:290:06:32

you would like to play for.

0:06:320:06:34

And, quizzers, if you buzz in correctly,

0:06:340:06:36

you will get to add that to your collection.

0:06:360:06:39

But beware because if you buzz in incorrectly,

0:06:390:06:41

you'll be frozen out of the next question, OK?

0:06:410:06:43

So, pickers, please make your first pick.

0:06:430:06:46

Let's see what you've chosen.

0:06:470:06:49

Mark and Amanda have gone for

0:06:500:06:52

the coach set,

0:06:520:06:53

Lisa and Rhiannon, the plant pot,

0:06:530:06:55

and Alan and Michelle,

0:06:550:06:57

the vinaigrette.

0:06:570:06:58

Here we go then, quizzers.

0:06:580:06:59

Fingers on buzzers. Question number one.

0:06:590:07:02

Which name is given to both a thin Mexican flatbread

0:07:020:07:05

and a Spanish omelette?

0:07:050:07:06

-Yes, Lisa.

-Tortilla.

0:07:080:07:09

It is a tortilla. The plant pot is yours.

0:07:090:07:12

Pickers, pick again.

0:07:120:07:13

Mark and Amanda sticking with the coach set.

0:07:150:07:18

0:07:200:07:22

Fingers on buzzers. Question two.

0:07:220:07:24

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carre

0:07:240:07:26

is a spy novel set during which era of hostility

0:07:260:07:29

between the Soviet Union and the West?

0:07:290:07:31

-Alan.

-Cold War.

0:07:310:07:32

It is the Cold War. The vinaigrette's yours.

0:07:320:07:35

-WHISPERS:

-Well done.

-Well done. Michelle's pleased with that.

0:07:350:07:38

Pickers, pick again.

0:07:380:07:39

Mark and Amanda, no surprise,

0:07:410:07:43

the coach set again.

0:07:430:07:44

Lisa and Rhiannon, the poster.

0:07:440:07:46

Alan and Michelle,

0:07:460:07:47

the medal this time.

0:07:470:07:48

Quizzers, question three.

0:07:480:07:50

In the Bible, which prophet came down from Mount Sinai

0:07:500:07:53

with the Ten Commandments?

0:07:530:07:55

-Yes, Alan.

-That was Moses.

0:07:550:07:57

It was Moses. The medal is yours.

0:07:570:07:59

Well done.

0:07:590:08:01

Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:010:08:02

Mark and Amanda, the coach set.

0:08:040:08:06

0:08:080:08:10

Quizzers, fingers on buzzers. Question four.

0:08:100:08:13

Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not,

0:08:130:08:15

was the debut album by which Sheffield band?

0:08:150:08:18

It was the Arctic Monkeys.

0:08:230:08:27

Pickers, pick again.

0:08:270:08:28

Mark and Amanda, the coach set.

0:08:300:08:32

Lisa and Rhiannon, the poster.

0:08:320:08:33

0:08:330:08:35

Quizzers, question five.

0:08:350:08:37

In 2015, Malcolm Turnbull became prime minister of which country?

0:08:370:08:42

-Yes, Alan.

-Australia.

0:08:420:08:43

Yes, Australia is correct.

0:08:430:08:45

-Well done.

-The earrings are in your collection.

0:08:450:08:47

Pickers, pick again.

0:08:470:08:49

Mark and Amanda, the coach set.

0:08:500:08:52

Lisa and Rhiannon, the poster.

0:08:520:08:54

Alan and Michelle, the candlesticks.

0:08:540:08:56

Quizzers, here comes question six.

0:08:560:08:58

In the 1960s cartoon series Wacky Races,

0:08:580:09:02

which character had a sidekick called Muttley?

0:09:020:09:05

-Yes, Mark.

-Dick Dastardly.

0:09:050:09:07

Correct.

0:09:070:09:09

-That coach set is finally yours.

-Phew!

-At last.

0:09:090:09:12

-LAUGHTER

-Nice one.

0:09:120:09:14

It's just drawing up now in your collection. Very good.

0:09:140:09:18

Pickers, make another pick.

0:09:180:09:19

Mark and Amanda have gone for the poster.

0:09:200:09:22

Lisa and Rhiannon staying with the poster.

0:09:220:09:25

Alan and Michelle sticking with the candlesticks.

0:09:250:09:27

Question seven.

0:09:270:09:28

Which British comedian is famous for his Pub Landlord alter...?

0:09:280:09:32

-Yes, Mark.

-Al Murray.

0:09:320:09:34

Yes, his Pub Landlord alter ego is Al Murray.

0:09:340:09:38

Congratulations, Mark. The poster is yours.

0:09:380:09:41

There's no stopping him now. Look at that.

0:09:410:09:43

Here we go. Final question. Pickers, make a pick.

0:09:430:09:46

Mark and Amanda, the candlesticks.

0:09:470:09:49

Lisa and Rhiannon, the coin.

0:09:490:09:51

Alan and Michelle, the candlesticks.

0:09:510:09:53

Quizzers, this is your final question in this round.

0:09:530:09:57

Which word is both a man's name and a woman's short hairstyle?

0:09:570:10:01

-Yes, Lisa.

-Bob.

0:10:020:10:03

Bob it is. The coin is yours.

0:10:030:10:07

Right, at the end of Round 1,

0:10:070:10:09

let's have a look at what you have in your collections.

0:10:090:10:12

Mark and Amanda, you have the coach set and the poster.

0:10:120:10:15

Lisa and Rhiannon, you have the plant pot and the coin.

0:10:150:10:19

Alan and Michelle, you have the vinaigrette,

0:10:190:10:21

the earrings and the medal.

0:10:210:10:24

Well done, everybody.

0:10:240:10:25

Our teams have started to build their collections,

0:10:250:10:27

but have they chosen wisely?

0:10:270:10:29

Before they have the chance to add more of them,

0:10:290:10:31

Charles is going to give each pair a fact about a lot of their choice,

0:10:310:10:34

which should be everything they need to know to make a valuation.

0:10:340:10:38

So, Team One, we're going to start with you.

0:10:380:10:40

First of all, I want to know a bit more about you.

0:10:400:10:43

So, Mark, you're a pretty good quizzer, aren't you?

0:10:430:10:47

We enjoy going out on the occasional nights on the weekend

0:10:470:10:50

and answer the local pub quizzes.

0:10:500:10:53

Sometimes, we win and sometimes, we've...

0:10:530:10:55

Well, we've finished last as well,

0:10:550:10:57

so it can really depend on the questions.

0:10:570:10:58

Yeah, it does, absolutely.

0:10:580:11:00

-If you know it, it's easy, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-That's the point.

0:11:000:11:03

And, Amanda, you've taught Mark, he says, a lot about antiques.

0:11:030:11:07

Yes, I mean, when I met Mark...

0:11:070:11:09

I've always had an interest in antiques,

0:11:090:11:11

which came from my uncle, mainly, as a child,

0:11:110:11:15

taking me around fairs and auctions and boot sales.

0:11:150:11:19

And since Mark has met me,

0:11:190:11:22

he's basically had no choice but to have some involvement in it

0:11:220:11:26

because he had no interest prior to that.

0:11:260:11:29

Welcome, both of you. It's lovely to have you here.

0:11:290:11:31

What would you like to know more about?

0:11:310:11:33

I'd like to know a little bit more about the coach and horses, please.

0:11:330:11:36

It's really caught your eye, hasn't it?

0:11:360:11:38

Yeah, and I can tell you this is a wonderfully detailed piece

0:11:380:11:42

entitled Her Majesty's Stage Coach.

0:11:420:11:45

It's produced by the toy manufacturers Britains

0:11:450:11:48

in Britain around the 1950s, so mid-20th century.

0:11:480:11:52

And this set is based on the one used during the coronation

0:11:520:11:57

of that King George III in 1761.

0:11:570:12:00

Overall, it's in good condition.

0:12:000:12:03

It comes with its original box - always a bonus for buyers.

0:12:030:12:08

The all-important question -

0:12:080:12:10

so, what do you think, Amanda, it's worth?

0:12:100:12:12

Hmm. Don't say anything. Just let you think about that.

0:12:120:12:15

Lisa and Rhiannon, how did you two meet?

0:12:150:12:18

We met about 20 years ago in antenatal classes

0:12:180:12:21

when we were both pregnant with our eldest sons.

0:12:210:12:23

We were all there relaxing and all of a sudden,

0:12:230:12:25

she just got up and walked out cos she was bored.

0:12:250:12:27

So, she kind of ruined the moment slightly

0:12:270:12:29

and no-one was very relaxed after that.

0:12:290:12:31

We went for a coffee and the rest is history.

0:12:310:12:33

How lovely. You thought, "Yeah, she's for me.

0:12:330:12:35

"She's not paying any attention."

0:12:350:12:37

OK, Rhiannon, tell me, what do you collect?

0:12:370:12:40

I like glass and I like sort of mid-century design.

0:12:400:12:43

Mid-century meaning 1950s or something?

0:12:430:12:46

Yes, something like that poster, I think.

0:12:460:12:49

Ah! Ooh, you may have let something out there you shouldn't.

0:12:490:12:52

-Play strategically, remember.

-Ooh!

0:12:520:12:54

Yes, but it's very nice to have you here. Good luck, girls.

0:12:540:12:57

So, what lot would you like to know more about from Charles?

0:12:570:13:00

Oh, I'd like to know more about the plate, please.

0:13:000:13:04

This plate is quite interesting

0:13:040:13:07

because it comes from the hillside town of Castelli,

0:13:070:13:10

home to one of Italy's most well-known crafts,

0:13:100:13:13

the eponymous Castelli ceramic.

0:13:130:13:16

And Castelli is one of those art forms

0:13:160:13:18

that seem to provoke conflicting reactions from people.

0:13:180:13:23

This plate was made in around 1760,

0:13:230:13:26

so it is a later example.

0:13:260:13:30

This particular plate has a provenance, Rhiannon.

0:13:300:13:33

It has a pedigree.

0:13:330:13:35

It was once owned by Earl Spencer,

0:13:350:13:37

and he auctioned it off in his attic sale of 2010

0:13:370:13:42

-to pay for a new roof at Althorp House.

-Hmm.

0:13:420:13:48

-That's an intriguing story, isn't it?

-It is.

0:13:480:13:51

Well, good luck, Team Two.

0:13:510:13:53

Now, Team Three, Alan and Michelle,

0:13:530:13:55

let's find out a little bit more about you as well.

0:13:550:13:57

So, Alan, I understand you like to collect fossils, stuff like that.

0:13:570:14:00

That's right, yeah.

0:14:000:14:01

I've got one or two local fossils because we live on Wenlock Edge

0:14:010:14:05

and that's full of really old - and I mean really old - fossils.

0:14:050:14:11

Yes, and what about you, Michelle? Do you have collections at home?

0:14:110:14:14

Yes, I started off with Coalport, just green-stamped at the back,

0:14:140:14:17

which makes it very old

0:14:170:14:19

and then we went on to the smaller ones

0:14:190:14:22

because we'd got so much of it, we hadn't got any room.

0:14:220:14:25

Well, incredible. Lovely to have you here.

0:14:250:14:27

What would you like to know more about?

0:14:270:14:29

I'd like to know more about the earrings.

0:14:290:14:32

This is a pair of tricolour, long-drop earrings,

0:14:320:14:36

which are made of a rose, yellow and a white gold.

0:14:360:14:40

They were designed in around 1980

0:14:400:14:43

and bear the signature of Marina B.

0:14:430:14:46

But what does the B stand for, you might ask?

0:14:460:14:50

Well, I can tell you it's Boulgaris.

0:14:500:14:53

Marina B is the granddaughter of Sotirios Boulgaris,

0:14:540:14:59

the founder of the highly regarded jewellers Bulgari.

0:14:590:15:05

So, there is a real pedigree.

0:15:050:15:08

These earrings are among the more timeless of those pieces

0:15:080:15:12

produced during that period

0:15:120:15:14

and could prove tempting for a modern buyer

0:15:140:15:17

wanting a bit of vintage flair.

0:15:170:15:20

Thank you, Charles. Intriguing information.

0:15:200:15:23

-I hope that's helped a bit.

-It has.

-But let's move on.

0:15:230:15:26

It's time to play Round 2.

0:15:260:15:28

APPLAUSE

0:15:280:15:31

In this round, the pickers will select a lot to play for

0:15:310:15:35

and the quizzers will again try to secure it by answering correctly,

0:15:350:15:38

but this time around, the lots come with their own question categories,

0:15:380:15:42

and here they are.

0:15:420:15:43

So, if you wanted that tool, for instance,

0:15:440:15:47

quizzers, I'd offer you a chance to answer a question

0:15:470:15:49

either on The Tudors or Autobiographies.

0:15:490:15:52

Very simple, really. And at the end of this round,

0:15:520:15:55

the team with the least valuable collection will be eliminated,

0:15:550:15:58

so choose wisely.

0:15:580:16:00

OK, Team One, you are up first.

0:16:000:16:01

So, Amanda, tell me what your lot is.

0:16:010:16:04

-I'd like the plate, please, Fern.

-The plate.

0:16:040:16:07

OK, Physics or The Olympics, Mark?

0:16:070:16:10

-The Olympics, please, Fern.

-The Olympics. Here you go.

0:16:100:16:13

A foil is a piece of equipment used in which Olympic sport?

0:16:130:16:16

Fencing.

0:16:160:16:18

Correct. The plate is yours.

0:16:180:16:21

It's as easy as that.

0:16:210:16:22

You've made that look very simple.

0:16:220:16:23

OK, Lisa and Rhiannon.

0:16:230:16:25

Rhiannon, would you like to choose something?

0:16:250:16:27

The salt cellar, please.

0:16:270:16:29

The salt cellar.

0:16:290:16:31

Lisa, UK Geography or The Olympics?

0:16:310:16:34

-I'll go for The Olympics as well, please.

-OK, here we go.

0:16:340:16:37

What do the initials IOC stand for?

0:16:380:16:40

International Olympic Committee.

0:16:400:16:43

Yes. The salt cellar is yours.

0:16:430:16:45

Michelle and Alan, your turn. Michelle, what would you like?

0:16:470:16:50

-I'm going to go for the candlesticks.

-I thought you would.

0:16:500:16:53

UK Geography or The Tudors, Alan?

0:16:530:16:55

UK Geography, please.

0:16:550:16:57

UK Geography.

0:16:570:16:59

By population, which is the second-largest city in the UK?

0:16:590:17:04

By population? Birmingham should be the...

0:17:050:17:08

It is. Birmingham is correct.

0:17:080:17:11

-The candlesticks are yours.

-Yay!

0:17:110:17:13

Yay! Building nice collections,

0:17:130:17:15

all of you.

0:17:150:17:17

OK, from now on, you can either go for what's left on the grid

0:17:170:17:20

or you can steal from someone else's collection.

0:17:200:17:24

But pickers, be warned.

0:17:240:17:25

If you choose to steal from another team,

0:17:250:17:28

they will get to choose which category your quizzer must face.

0:17:280:17:31

OK, Team One, do you want to pick from the grid or steal?

0:17:310:17:34

I'd like to pick the table, please.

0:17:340:17:36

The table on the grid? OK.

0:17:360:17:38

UK Geography or Action Films, Mark?

0:17:380:17:41

-UK Geography, please.

-UK Geography.

0:17:410:17:44

In which English county are the White Cliffs of Dover?

0:17:440:17:48

Kent.

0:17:480:17:49

It is Kent. The table is yours.

0:17:490:17:51

There we go.

0:17:520:17:54

Lisa and Rhiannon, pick or steal?

0:17:540:17:56

I'd like to steal the poster, please.

0:17:560:17:58

Steal the poster from Mark and Amanda.

0:17:580:18:01

Mark and Amanda, you can talk amongst yourselves.

0:18:010:18:03

Which question category would you like to give Lisa?

0:18:030:18:06

I would either say Physics or Action Films.

0:18:060:18:09

-Yeah, we'll pick Physics, Fern.

-Physics.

0:18:090:18:12

Your Physics question is

0:18:120:18:14

what name is given to the force that attracts all objects on its surface

0:18:140:18:17

to the centre of the Earth?

0:18:170:18:19

Gravity.

0:18:190:18:20

Yes, easy. The poster is yours.

0:18:200:18:23

Alan and Michelle, pick or steal?

0:18:230:18:25

-Steal, I'm afraid.

-What do you want?

-The plate.

0:18:250:18:28

The plate. Poor Mark and Amanda!

0:18:280:18:31

-Oh, they're ganging up here.

-Yes.

0:18:310:18:33

Sorry, guys.

0:18:330:18:35

Right, Mark and Amanda, give me a category for Alan.

0:18:350:18:38

Well, nothing to do with his style, but Fashion.

0:18:380:18:41

Fashion. OK, Alan.

0:18:410:18:43

London, Paris, New York and which other city are locations

0:18:430:18:46

for the four major biannual fashion weeks?

0:18:460:18:49

Is it Tokyo?

0:18:510:18:52

-It is not Tokyo. It's Milan.

-Milan!

0:18:520:18:56

The plate is not coming to you. Well defended.

0:18:570:19:00

Mark and Amanda, what would you like to do, pick or steal?

0:19:000:19:03

I'd like to steal the vinaigrette, please.

0:19:030:19:07

The vinaigrette, which is with Alan and Michelle.

0:19:070:19:10

What category are you going to give Mark?

0:19:100:19:13

We think Autobiographies.

0:19:130:19:14

Autobiographies. Mark, here's your question.

0:19:140:19:17

What You See Is What You Get is the autobiography

0:19:170:19:19

of which businessman and media personality?

0:19:190:19:23

Alan Sugar.

0:19:230:19:24

Correct. Very good.

0:19:240:19:26

You've got the vinaigrette in your collection.

0:19:260:19:29

Lisa and Rhiannon, pick or steal?

0:19:290:19:31

Steal the medal.

0:19:310:19:33

You want the medal.

0:19:330:19:35

Alan and Michelle, to defend this,

0:19:350:19:37

what category would you like to give Lisa?

0:19:370:19:39

-Olympics, please.

-Olympics.

0:19:390:19:41

Lisa, which Winter Olympic sport is played with stones and brooms?

0:19:410:19:45

Curling.

0:19:450:19:46

Curling it is. The medal is on its way to you.

0:19:460:19:50

Sorry, Alan and Michelle, but here's your chance.

0:19:500:19:53

-Pick or steal?

-I think we'll steal the plate.

0:19:530:19:57

The plate in Mark and Amanda's collection.

0:19:570:19:59

Right, Mark and Amanda, please give me a category for Alan.

0:19:590:20:03

-Same again?

-Yes, Fashion again.

-Fashion again, please.

0:20:030:20:06

Fashion again! Kick a man when he's down.

0:20:060:20:08

Here we go, Alan.

0:20:080:20:10

Which men's dinner jacket takes its name

0:20:100:20:12

from the country club in Orange County, New York

0:20:120:20:14

where it was first worn?

0:20:140:20:16

I would imagine that's tuxedo.

0:20:160:20:18

-You would imagine correctly.

-Hoorah!

0:20:180:20:20

-The plate is yours.

-Thank you.

0:20:200:20:22

-Well done.

-Here it comes.

0:20:220:20:23

Well, that is the end of the round,

0:20:230:20:25

so let's see how the collections are looking.

0:20:250:20:28

Mark and Amanda have the coach set,

0:20:280:20:30

the vinaigrette and the table.

0:20:300:20:32

Lisa and Rhiannon,

0:20:320:20:33

you have the plant pot, the coin,

0:20:330:20:35

the salt cellar,

0:20:350:20:36

the poster and the medal.

0:20:360:20:38

And Alan and Michelle,

0:20:380:20:39

you have the earrings,

0:20:390:20:41

the plate and the candlesticks.

0:20:410:20:43

OK, for one team, it is now the end of the road.

0:20:430:20:47

Charles has been keeping tabs

0:20:470:20:48

and the team with the least valuable collection will now be eliminated.

0:20:480:20:52

So, Charles, who is leaving us first?

0:20:520:20:55

The pair leaving us first

0:20:550:20:57

is actually the pair who I thought might be favourites.

0:20:570:21:00

But I can reveal leaving us is...

0:21:020:21:05

-..Mark and Amanda.

-Oh!

-I'm sorry.

0:21:060:21:08

-I'm sorry. Round of applause.

-APPLAUSE

0:21:080:21:12

Mark and Amanda, we're very sorry to have to let you go,

0:21:150:21:19

but I'm sure, before you go,

0:21:190:21:20

you want to know the value of your collection.

0:21:200:21:22

Shall we go through them piece by piece before we come to the total?

0:21:220:21:25

It was the stagecoach, Amanda, that you really wanted to acquire.

0:21:250:21:30

You were quite pleased it had the box with it.

0:21:300:21:33

That was quite key. Wonderful little toy.

0:21:330:21:36

Its auction value was £200, OK?

0:21:360:21:40

So, not a huge amount.

0:21:400:21:42

And you also had the table in your collection.

0:21:420:21:44

It's a lovely example of a type of design

0:21:440:21:47

which is typical to Syrian furniture.

0:21:470:21:50

Just look at it. It's quite wonderful.

0:21:500:21:52

And to create those geometric patterns,

0:21:520:21:55

the craftsman has to painstakingly cut the designs

0:21:550:21:58

into the surface of the wood

0:21:580:22:00

and then the mother of pearl was inlaid on top.

0:22:000:22:03

It's a real skill which you just can't reproduce today

0:22:030:22:07

in mass, machine industry.

0:22:070:22:09

It's a super item. It's full of eastern promise.

0:22:090:22:12

For what it's worth, it was £250.

0:22:120:22:16

-Oh.

-OK.

0:22:160:22:18

And then finally, that engraved, Victorian, silver vinaigrette.

0:22:180:22:22

Produced in Birmingham in 1846,

0:22:220:22:25

and they were used whilst travelling to give a pleasant aroma

0:22:250:22:29

as far back as Regency times - around 1800.

0:22:290:22:33

And for an item that's less than an inch tall,

0:22:330:22:36

it's covered in this really pretty, attractive, engraved design.

0:22:360:22:40

It is small, it's beautiful,

0:22:400:22:42

but its value - £60 - seems quite cheap.

0:22:420:22:45

Your final total of your three items was £510.

0:22:460:22:51

Well done.

0:22:550:22:56

Well, you did very well, but not well enough.

0:22:580:23:01

Mark and Amanda, thank you so much for playing For What It's Worth.

0:23:010:23:05

-APPLAUSE

-Thank you.

0:23:050:23:07

And also the unclaimed items in the grid

0:23:100:23:12

are now having to leave the game,

0:23:120:23:14

so let's quickly find out from Charles

0:23:140:23:16

what they are worth and if the top lot is still in the game.

0:23:160:23:19

They've virtually cleaned us out today, haven't they, Charles?

0:23:190:23:22

I'm amazed. You left one item on the board

0:23:220:23:25

and, actually, this interesting-looking item

0:23:250:23:27

is a bevel stock,

0:23:270:23:29

used by joiners and carpenters, especially in the shipyard.

0:23:290:23:34

In good condition, the wood has held up really well

0:23:340:23:37

and there is a beautiful brass butterfly screw

0:23:370:23:41

holding the tool together.

0:23:410:23:43

The value? Well, if it had that Titanic romance,

0:23:430:23:46

of course, value would be huge.

0:23:460:23:48

But I can tell you, quite simply, it's virtually worthless.

0:23:480:23:53

-Oh!

-Well done.

0:23:530:23:55

Very good.

0:23:560:23:57

The bottom lot is out, which means someone has got the top lot,

0:23:570:24:02

which is worth £2,500.

0:24:020:24:05

So, teams, congratulations on getting this far.

0:24:050:24:07

You now have one last chance to pick our expert's brains.

0:24:070:24:11

So, which lot do you need to know more about, Lisa and Rhiannon?

0:24:110:24:15

I'd like to know more about the poster, please.

0:24:150:24:17

Here we have a promotional airline poster from the late 1930s.

0:24:170:24:22

It was created by James Gardner, OBE,

0:24:220:24:27

who was a British museum and exhibition designer

0:24:270:24:30

who also designed the interior

0:24:300:24:33

and superstructure for the QE2.

0:24:330:24:36

The market for vintage posters, quite simply, is pretty huge

0:24:360:24:41

and travel posters, in particular,

0:24:410:24:43

are one of the largest collecting fields.

0:24:430:24:47

Nostalgia for an era

0:24:470:24:49

when travel offered excitement and glamour has fuelled this demand,

0:24:490:24:54

but the really desirable examples have to be in perfect condition.

0:24:540:25:00

This one has survived very well

0:25:000:25:04

and is only showing a little of its 80-or-so years of age.

0:25:040:25:10

But will it make your collection take off?

0:25:100:25:13

Ooh, we like that. And it could almost look

0:25:130:25:16

-as if it was made yesterday. It's so modern.

-Absolutely.

-Mm.

0:25:160:25:20

Right, Team Three, what would you like to know more about?

0:25:200:25:23

-I'd like to know a little bit more about the medal, please.

-The medal.

0:25:230:25:27

As you have spotted already,

0:25:270:25:29

this is a medal which was awarded to a soldier

0:25:290:25:32

for service during that Battle of Waterloo

0:25:320:25:36

and was, in fact, the first campaign medal

0:25:360:25:39

to be awarded to every participant.

0:25:390:25:43

It's dated the 18th of June 1815 -

0:25:430:25:46

the date of the battle -

0:25:460:25:47

and bears a name - Wellington -

0:25:470:25:50

referring, of course, to the Duke of Wellington

0:25:500:25:52

who led Britain to that celebrated victory over Napoleon.

0:25:520:25:56

It is a pretty rare piece.

0:25:560:25:59

Condition is key with medals,

0:25:590:26:02

and this one has fared quite well.

0:26:020:26:05

So, is it an item worth battling for?

0:26:050:26:10

What's it worth?

0:26:100:26:11

It's all good, isn't it, and mysterious?

0:26:140:26:17

But it's now time for our final round,

0:26:170:26:20

and at the end of it, we will have our winners.

0:26:200:26:23

APPLAUSE

0:26:230:26:25

In this round, I'll show you a category and 12 possible answers.

0:26:250:26:30

Nine are correct, three are not.

0:26:300:26:32

Each of you will then take turns to choose an answer

0:26:320:26:34

that you think is correct.

0:26:340:26:36

As it's the final round, both quizzers and pickers will play,

0:26:360:26:40

so there's nowhere to hide.

0:26:400:26:41

Pick a wrong answer

0:26:410:26:42

and your opponents will be able to steal a lot from your collection.

0:26:420:26:46

If all nine correct answers are given,

0:26:460:26:48

then the team who gives the final correct answer will be the winners.

0:26:480:26:53

We'll play three questions in total.

0:26:530:26:55

The pair with the most valuable collection

0:26:550:26:57

can choose to go first or second.

0:26:570:26:59

So, Charles, who is that at the moment?

0:26:590:27:01

Fern, I can reveal

0:27:010:27:03

the team who has the most valuable collection so far is...

0:27:030:27:09

-..Lisa and Rhiannon. Well done.

-APPLAUSE

0:27:110:27:15

Lisa and Rhiannon, I'm going to show you question one,

0:27:180:27:21

which is...

0:27:210:27:23

Caribbean Countries.

0:27:230:27:25

So, you're looking for the names of countries

0:27:250:27:27

in the geographical region known as the Caribbean.

0:27:270:27:32

Would you like to play first or second?

0:27:320:27:34

-First, please.

-First.

-First? OK, here we go.

0:27:340:27:36

Nine of those are correct, three of them are not.

0:27:390:27:42

Lisa, give me an answer.

0:27:420:27:44

-St Kitts and Nevis.

-St Kitts and Nevis.

0:27:440:27:47

If it goes green, it's correct.

0:27:470:27:49

Course it's correct.

0:27:510:27:52

Two islands in the shape of an exclamation mark. Well done.

0:27:520:27:55

Alan, give me an answer.

0:27:550:27:57

-Haiti.

-Haiti.

0:27:570:27:59

Yes, that's correct and the capital is Port-au-Prince.

0:28:020:28:06

-Rhiannon.

-The Bahamas.

-The Bahamas.

0:28:060:28:09

Yes, that's correct. Apparently, there's a group of 700 islands

0:28:110:28:14

making up the Bahamas.

0:28:140:28:16

Michelle.

0:28:160:28:17

-Dominican Republic.

-Dominican Republic.

0:28:170:28:20

Correct.

0:28:220:28:23

Home to the Caribbean's highest mountain.

0:28:230:28:25

Lisa.

0:28:260:28:28

-Trinidad and Tobago.

-Trinidad and Tobago.

0:28:280:28:31

Correct. Twin island country, that one.

0:28:330:28:35

Alan.

0:28:350:28:36

-Grenada.

-Grenada.

0:28:360:28:39

Correct, also known as Spice Island.

0:28:410:28:44

Rhiannon.

0:28:440:28:45

-Saint Lucia.

-Saint Lucia.

0:28:450:28:48

Yes, that's correct. Dominated by two volcanic spikes.

0:28:500:28:55

Michelle.

0:28:550:28:56

-The Seychelles.

-The Seychelles.

0:28:560:28:58

-Oh! Incorrect.

-Indian Ocean.

-Ah.

0:29:010:29:04

Let's see all the other answers.

0:29:040:29:06

-The Seychelles is an African country.

-Yeah.

0:29:060:29:09

It's Indian Ocean.

0:29:090:29:10

San Marino is European, in Italy.

0:29:100:29:13

And Saint West...

0:29:130:29:14

Anybody know Saint West?

0:29:140:29:17

It's Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's son.

0:29:170:29:19

LAUGHTER Well done, Lisa and Rhiannon.

0:29:190:29:23

That means you can steal a lot from your opponents. What would you like?

0:29:230:29:27

-The plate, do you think?

-I was thinking the earrings.

0:29:270:29:30

Plate or earrings?

0:29:300:29:31

Either/or. I'll leave it to you, picker.

0:29:320:29:35

I'm going for the earrings.

0:29:350:29:37

The earrings, they're yours.

0:29:370:29:39

Here comes question two.

0:29:420:29:43

Alan and Michelle, this is for you.

0:29:450:29:47

Rabbits In Watership Down.

0:29:470:29:49

You're looking for the names of rabbits

0:29:490:29:51

from the novel Watership Down by Richard Adams.

0:29:510:29:54

Would you like to go first or second?

0:29:540:29:57

-Go first.

-Yeah, OK. We'll go first.

-First?

-Yes, please.

0:29:570:30:00

OK, let's have a look at the answers.

0:30:000:30:02

Give me an answer, Alan.

0:30:040:30:06

-Bigwig.

-Bigwig.

0:30:060:30:08

Correct. A big, tough rabbit. Lisa.

0:30:100:30:13

-Fiver.

-Fiver.

0:30:130:30:16

Correct. He's psychic. Michelle.

0:30:180:30:21

-Hazel.

-Hazel.

0:30:220:30:24

Correct. The main character.

0:30:270:30:28

Rhiannon.

0:30:280:30:30

-Pipkin.

-Pipkin.

0:30:300:30:32

Correct.

0:30:350:30:36

Pipkin, fierce and loyal.

0:30:360:30:39

Alan.

0:30:390:30:40

-Buckthorn.

-Buckthorn.

0:30:400:30:43

Yes, correct. A tough fighter.

0:30:450:30:48

Lisa.

0:30:480:30:49

-Dandelion.

-Dandelion.

0:30:490:30:52

Correct. Dandelion because it was a yellow-furred rabbit.

0:30:540:30:58

Michelle.

0:30:580:30:59

-Petra.

-Petra.

0:30:590:31:01

Oh.

0:31:060:31:07

Petra is the Blue Peter dog.

0:31:070:31:10

SHE LAUGHS

0:31:100:31:12

Let's have a look at the other wrong answers.

0:31:120:31:14

Pistachio, of course, a nut.

0:31:150:31:18

Crankshaft, part of a car engine. LAUGHTER

0:31:180:31:22

-But it would have been a great name for a rabbit, wouldn't it?

-Yeah.

0:31:220:31:25

OK, Lisa and Rhiannon, get ready to steal.

0:31:250:31:29

What do you want?

0:31:290:31:31

-BOTH:

-The plate.

0:31:310:31:33

The plate.

0:31:330:31:34

OK, the plate is yours.

0:31:340:31:37

Third and final question now.

0:31:370:31:40

Lisa and Rhiannon, this question is for you.

0:31:400:31:43

Britney Spears UK Top Ten Hits.

0:31:440:31:47

You need to identify the names of singles

0:31:470:31:49

released by Britney Spears which have charted in the UK's top ten.

0:31:490:31:54

OK, would you like to go first or second?

0:31:540:31:57

-First, please.

-First? Let's have a look at the answers.

0:31:570:32:00

Lisa, give me an answer.

0:32:020:32:04

-Toxic.

-Toxic.

0:32:040:32:05

Correct. Number one in 2004. Alan.

0:32:090:32:12

-Hard To Handle.

-Hard To Handle.

0:32:130:32:16

Oh!

0:32:200:32:22

It's Otis Redding.

0:32:240:32:26

-Yeah.

-It's just...no.

-Oh!

0:32:260:32:28

Let's have a look at the other wrong answers.

0:32:280:32:30

Beautiful was Christina Aguilera

0:32:320:32:35

and Underneath Your Clothes was Shakira.

0:32:350:32:37

Everything else there, a Britney Spears top ten.

0:32:370:32:40

Alan, I guess Britney Spears is maybe not up your street.

0:32:400:32:44

-BOTH:

-No.

-Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, yes.

-Yes.

0:32:440:32:50

This is a crucial moment for you

0:32:500:32:52

because Lisa and Rhiannon are going to take the last thing

0:32:520:32:56

in your collection.

0:32:560:32:57

Girls, do it quickly, like ripping off a plaster.

0:32:570:33:00

-Candlesticks.

-Candlesticks! LAUGHTER

0:33:000:33:03

There we are. It's gone.

0:33:030:33:05

-Well done, girls.

-Yes.

-Oh, Alan and Michelle.

0:33:050:33:08

Well, you have lost, actually, very nobly.

0:33:080:33:10

Thank you for playing For What It's Worth.

0:33:100:33:12

Alan and Michelle. APPLAUSE

0:33:120:33:15

Well done, Lisa and Rhiannon.

0:33:170:33:19

You are today's winners and now all that remains -

0:33:190:33:22

simple - is for you to claim your prize.

0:33:220:33:25

All you have to do is pick one of the lots in your collection

0:33:250:33:28

and we will give you its value in cash.

0:33:280:33:31

So, which one do you want to choose? Discuss it with each other.

0:33:310:33:35

This is really hard now. We've got too much to choose from, haven't we?

0:33:350:33:39

That plate was curious, wasn't it? I don't like it, but...

0:33:410:33:44

Or the medal, or the coin that we know nothing about.

0:33:440:33:46

I don't think it's the candlesticks, I don't think it's the salt cellar

0:33:460:33:50

-and I don't think it's the earrings.

-Do you know the coin?

0:33:500:33:52

Do you know anything about the coin?

0:33:520:33:54

I think coin, medal or plate.

0:33:540:33:56

I think it's one of those three, but...

0:33:560:33:59

I'm going to have to push you.

0:34:000:34:02

Do you want to choose from those three?

0:34:030:34:05

I want the poster. I'll go for the plate.

0:34:070:34:10

So, you're going with the plate.

0:34:120:34:13

Now, we need to let you know what you have said goodbye to.

0:34:130:34:17

So, Charles.

0:34:170:34:19

First of all, the salt cellar was up first.

0:34:190:34:21

Rhiannon, you said, "Not my sort of thing."

0:34:210:34:23

Lisa, you were quite intrigued by it.

0:34:230:34:24

Well, quite right. It's an early 1900s salt cellar,

0:34:240:34:29

made of oak with metal bindings.

0:34:290:34:31

It has a wooden handle. It's in great condition.

0:34:310:34:34

What was it worth?

0:34:340:34:36

It was worth £80.

0:34:360:34:38

OK? So, no huge sum.

0:34:380:34:40

We then moved on to those pair of candlesticks.

0:34:400:34:44

They feature a loaded base,

0:34:440:34:47

which basically means that the bottom of each

0:34:470:34:49

has been filled with a fairly heavy material,

0:34:490:34:52

even perhaps cement, to weigh them down

0:34:520:34:55

and stop them toppling over.

0:34:550:34:57

These were made in that great industrial town of Birmingham

0:34:570:35:01

from the very early years of the 20th century.

0:35:010:35:04

You might call them Edwardian. Circa 1910.

0:35:040:35:08

They are sterling, so they are 92.5% solid silver.

0:35:080:35:13

Naturally more valuable than silver plate,

0:35:130:35:15

and, of course, as ever, it's always good to have a pair.

0:35:150:35:19

LAUGHTER

0:35:190:35:21

Their value? They're pretty good.

0:35:210:35:23

Their value was £100.

0:35:230:35:27

-Oh!

-OK, then we have those earrings, which were so 1980s.

0:35:270:35:32

Regardless of that, they have style

0:35:320:35:35

and when it comes to jewellery today,

0:35:350:35:38

that's that keyword in obtaining and adding value.

0:35:380:35:41

It's got the look. Their value -

0:35:410:35:44

£700.

0:35:440:35:45

And from the 1980s, we can move on to what really is quite jazzy.

0:35:470:35:51

What have we got here? Well, it's Clarice Cliff.

0:35:510:35:53

She was an active English artist,

0:35:530:35:55

designer on pottery from 1922 to 1963

0:35:550:36:00

and is probably the most prolific

0:36:000:36:02

and important Art Deco designer of the 20th century.

0:36:020:36:06

This is what we call the Aurea pattern,

0:36:060:36:09

and as you can see, it's bright, it's happy,

0:36:090:36:12

it's painted with a large marigold

0:36:120:36:14

and types of flowers on sinuous stems

0:36:140:36:17

in those really almost quite gaudy tones of green,

0:36:170:36:20

browns, yellow and pinks.

0:36:200:36:22

Now, the value of this gorgeous Deco piece

0:36:220:36:28

is £500.

0:36:280:36:29

And then, moving on, this is a Henry I penny

0:36:300:36:33

from around 1123.

0:36:330:36:35

It's almost 900 years old.

0:36:350:36:38

One side of the coin shows a facing bust of the king

0:36:380:36:42

whilst the other side depicts a fleur-de-lys

0:36:420:36:46

in circles surrounding.

0:36:460:36:48

Remarkably, it's still fully round.

0:36:480:36:50

It may have had a plough go over it,

0:36:500:36:53

but it's in very fine condition and is really quite pretty rare.

0:36:530:36:58

Value?

0:36:580:36:59

They say small is beautiful and prized.

0:36:590:37:02

£1,750.

0:37:040:37:08

Oh! That's a relief, it wasn't the top lot. OK.

0:37:090:37:13

-LAUGHTER

-It's tense.

0:37:130:37:15

Now, you kept bouncing this poster at the start,

0:37:150:37:18

hoping you would secure it, and you did. Well done.

0:37:180:37:22

It is Imperial Airways,

0:37:220:37:24

one early British commercial, long-range air transport company,

0:37:240:37:28

which folded in the year 1939.

0:37:280:37:31

So, we know this poster is prewar.

0:37:310:37:34

These posters are so, so desirable.

0:37:340:37:37

Yes, there are a couple of crease marks in, but come on.

0:37:370:37:41

It's been out of sunlight, it's so alive.

0:37:410:37:44

It's just a starry object, and I'm sorry...

0:37:440:37:48

..you didn't take it on board because its value is £350.

0:37:490:37:54

LAUGHTER

0:37:540:37:56

So...

0:37:560:37:57

So, it comes down to two.

0:37:580:38:02

This medal. What this is is a valuable campaign medal.

0:38:040:38:09

Only 8,000 were produced.

0:38:100:38:14

Many have got lost over the years.

0:38:140:38:17

Their values have jumped in the last 40 years.

0:38:170:38:22

If I tell you, in 1990, you could have bought this medal for £350,

0:38:220:38:27

but today's a day, I shall tell you...

0:38:270:38:30

..the value of this medal today is...

0:38:310:38:34

-..£2,500. I'm sorry.

-GROANING

0:38:360:38:39

-I'm sorry.

-I knew it. I knew it.

0:38:390:38:42

Ooh. OK, Lisa and Rhiannon, you have won the value of the plate

0:38:420:38:48

and just out of interest, what do you think that might be worth?

0:38:480:38:51

-Not a lot.

-No, we don't even like it.

0:38:520:38:56

Well, before we tell you what it's worth,

0:38:580:39:00

can we tempt you with the mystery lot?

0:39:000:39:03

Come and join me.

0:39:030:39:04

APPLAUSE

0:39:040:39:07

Lisa and Rhiannon, here is your lot.

0:39:090:39:12

Do you like it better?

0:39:120:39:14

-BOTH:

-No.

-THEY LAUGH

0:39:150:39:17

Well, as things stand, you have won its value in cash.

0:39:170:39:20

You have chosen the plate, but before we tell you its value,

0:39:200:39:23

Charles is going to tempt you with today's mystery lot.

0:39:230:39:26

-Charles, what have you got?

-I'll be very careful.

0:39:260:39:28

It's an object of great beauty. There we go.

0:39:280:39:31

-Any ideas yet?

-Violin.

-Musical.

0:39:320:39:35

-You're quite right on that note.

-Ooh.

0:39:350:39:37

I'll tell you because that note is indeed...

0:39:370:39:40

If I take it out very, very carefully.

0:39:400:39:42

..is a quite lovely object here...

0:39:420:39:46

-Ooh.

-..which you might say is distressed.

0:39:460:39:51

What we've got here is a very nice, late-19th-century,

0:39:510:39:54

two-piece back violin.

0:39:540:39:57

As you can see, the many years have not been kind to it

0:39:570:40:00

and it's safe to say it's not exactly in mint condition.

0:40:000:40:04

The turning pegs up here have mostly fallen out,

0:40:040:40:07

the strings are ruptured beyond repair, in many respects,

0:40:070:40:11

but you would be wrong to dismiss it

0:40:110:40:14

without giving it some proper consideration.

This violin has a bookmatch,

0:40:170:40:20

meaning the maker has sliced a piece of wood down the middle

0:40:200:40:23

and opened it up like a book.

0:40:230:40:25

The flames, or grain patterns, in the wood

0:40:250:40:29

therefore become opposites

0:40:290:40:31

and this has a very striking visual effect.

0:40:310:40:35

It's damaged, but it is well made

0:40:350:40:38

and could produce a lovely noise once again with a little TLC.

0:40:380:40:43

Hm. Right, your instant thoughts?

0:40:430:40:46

Sometimes, there's a paper label inside,

0:40:460:40:48

but you're supposed to look through the holes

0:40:480:40:50

and see if there's anything inside. So, it could be, it could be not.

0:40:500:40:55

-I'd say we both hated that.

-The plate.

0:40:550:40:57

Why we've got it there, I'm not sure.

0:40:570:40:59

-No?

-Maybe cut our losses with the plate and go for that.

0:40:590:41:02

-Stick with the plate.

-I don't think so.

0:41:020:41:04

-Oh!

-I say maybe cut our losses with the plate...

-Oh, no!

0:41:040:41:07

-No!

-..because we didn't like it.

0:41:070:41:09

I just want to confirm, double-check,

0:41:090:41:11

you're going with the plate?

0:41:110:41:13

-Yes.

-Are you sure?

-Yes.

0:41:140:41:17

-OK.

-Plate it is.

0:41:170:41:19

Charles, tell them what they've thrown away with this violin.

0:41:200:41:24

So, this violin.

0:41:240:41:27

It's tired, but sometimes, that can be a charm in value.

0:41:270:41:31

Violins are one of the most spurious,

0:41:310:41:33

speculative high-ends of the market

0:41:330:41:36

if two buyers get behind this sort of instrument

0:41:360:41:40

and it can really play sweet music.

0:41:400:41:43

And I can tell you its auction market value is...

0:41:430:41:48

..£150.

0:41:500:41:53

-Well done.

-What's that worth?

0:41:530:41:55

LAUGHTER

0:41:550:41:58

Wow.

0:41:580:42:00

-Would you mind popping him back?

-Indeed, indeed.

0:42:000:42:03

-No Stradivarius.

-No.

-No.

-No.

0:42:030:42:05

We were hoping that might have been the hidden name, but no.

0:42:050:42:08

Well, while that's put away,

0:42:080:42:10

you know that you've won the worth of this plate,

0:42:100:42:13

this poor, ugly plate that you don't like.

0:42:130:42:16

-Yes.

-Charles, please tell us how much they've won.

0:42:160:42:21

It's a small plate,

0:42:210:42:22

but we always talk about small can be beautiful.

0:42:220:42:24

This is very late Renaissance.

0:42:240:42:26

This is tin-glazed earthenware, what we call maiolica.

0:42:260:42:29

And whilst this plate is tired,

0:42:290:42:33

it has a real interest amongst continental buyers,

0:42:330:42:37

and I can tell you its value today is...

0:42:370:42:42

..£1,200. You were right.

0:42:440:42:47

There we go. Lovely.

0:42:470:42:49

APPLAUSE Oh, congratulations.

0:42:490:42:54

-Thank you.

-That's marvellous. That's absolutely marvellous.

0:42:540:42:57

Today, Lisa and Rhiannon, you are going home with £1,200.

0:42:570:43:01

-Thank you.

-Thank you very much.

0:43:010:43:03

Wonderful. Charles, thank you so much for lending us

0:43:030:43:05

-all your expertise, as ever.

-I've enjoyed it.

0:43:050:43:07

And we're very much looking forward to seeing you again next time

0:43:070:43:10

when more teams will be trying to spot the lot to win the lot

0:43:100:43:13

on For What It's Worth. See you next time. Goodbye for now.

0:43:130:43:16
