This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,

0:00:020:00:03

the show that pitches TV's best-loved antiques experts

0:00:030:00:06

against each other in an all-out battle for profit...

0:00:060:00:10

Yee-ha.

0:00:110:00:12

..and gives you

0:00:120:00:13

the insider's view of the trade.

0:00:130:00:15

Who's there?

0:00:170:00:18

Each week, one pair of duelling dealers

0:00:190:00:21

will face a different daily challenge...

0:00:210:00:24

The Axeman, roar!

0:00:240:00:25

..putting their reputations on the line...

0:00:270:00:29

Ready for the ball.

0:00:290:00:30

..and giving you their top tips

0:00:320:00:34

and savvy secrets on how to make the most money

0:00:340:00:37

from buying and selling.

0:00:370:00:39

Get in there.

0:00:390:00:40

Today's all-action extravaganza sets the duke of dealing, Jonty Hearnden,

0:00:420:00:47

against the squire of the saleroom, James Braxton,

0:00:470:00:50

at an auction in Dorset.

0:00:500:00:53

Coming up,

0:00:530:00:54

James blows a wad of cash.

0:00:540:00:56

460.

0:00:570:00:59

480. Lady's back in. 480.

0:00:590:01:02

Jonty uses his nous to date a road map.

0:01:020:01:06

There's no M25.

0:01:060:01:07

-No, no.

-And if you look further west, there's no M4.

0:01:070:01:11

And James commits a crime of fashion.

0:01:110:01:14

I'm going to take it off before I get arrested.

0:01:150:01:17

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:01:170:01:20

Listen up and gather round,

0:01:340:01:36

prepare yourselves for a sizzling saleroom challenge.

0:01:360:01:39

We have two awesome antiques experts limbering up

0:01:390:01:43

ahead of a day of high drama.

0:01:430:01:45

They'll be bidding for the best to ensure they make prime purchases

0:01:450:01:49

that will go on to make whopping profits.

0:01:490:01:51

Let's meet them.

0:01:510:01:53

First up, a man who spots potential in the most unlikely places.

0:01:530:01:57

His laser-like vision and expert knowledge

0:01:570:01:59

make him the selling superhero.

0:01:590:02:01

From Oxfordshire, it's the commanding officer

0:02:010:02:04

of all things antique...

0:02:040:02:05

It's going to be tough buying, that's for sure.

0:02:080:02:10

Facing up to him, the Dark Knight of the deal.

0:02:100:02:13

He might seem like a rather charming fellow, but he's an antiques ninja,

0:02:130:02:17

always poised to show off his vicious skills.

0:02:170:02:19

From East Sussex, pumped up and ready to pounce, it's...

0:02:190:02:22

I'm looking forward to the challenge

0:02:260:02:28

and I'm sort of... Really want to try and beat him.

0:02:280:02:31

Well, that is the aim of the game.

0:02:330:02:35

Our battling boys are squaring up at Cottees Auctions

0:02:350:02:38

in Wareham in Dorset.

0:02:380:02:39

They each come armed with expertise, skill and wit,

0:02:390:02:43

along with £1,000 of their own money to spend

0:02:430:02:45

and that must include the cost of the saleroom's fees.

0:02:450:02:48

Once they've sold their lots on,

0:02:480:02:50

any profit they make will go directly to their chosen charities.

0:02:500:02:53

So, let's get down to business.

0:02:530:02:56

Jonty Hearnden and James Braxton,

0:02:560:02:59

the time has come to put your money where your mouth is.

0:02:590:03:03

-James, how are you?

-Very well. Good to see you, Jonty.

0:03:030:03:05

You're looking suitably dapper.

0:03:050:03:07

You're looking very a la mode, if I might say.

0:03:070:03:09

I'm kind of like dressed for the occasion

0:03:090:03:11

cos there's a bit of outdoors, a bit of indoors going on today

0:03:110:03:13

because not only have we got one auction,

0:03:130:03:15

we've got two other auctions going on at the same time here.

0:03:150:03:18

-Oh, what, all concurrently?

-Yes.

0:03:180:03:19

-It's going to be a lot of mayhem going on today.

-Fabulous.

0:03:190:03:22

-I like running between sheds.

-So, we've got £1,000 to spend.

0:03:220:03:25

-£1,000.

-Have you got any idea what you want to buy today?

0:03:250:03:28

Obviously, bargains. And you?

0:03:280:03:30

Silly question really cos... JAMES LAUGHS

0:03:300:03:32

That's what I'm going to be looking for. Bit of a challenge.

0:03:320:03:35

-It will be.

-Enjoy your day.

-Same to you.

0:03:350:03:37

So, they're off, and they're going to need plenty of stamina

0:03:390:03:42

because it will be a long day.

0:03:420:03:44

Three auctions running simultaneously in three locations,

0:03:440:03:47

so there could be some legwork required running between them.

0:03:470:03:51

And, before the sales get under way,

0:03:510:03:52

they've already got their work cut out trying to view everything.

0:03:520:03:56

It all just adds to the tension.

0:03:560:03:58

There's an awful lot of stuff here that I think, I sense,

0:03:590:04:02

there's going to be an awful lot of competition, including James himself.

0:04:020:04:05

So, what do I buy? It's decisions, decisions.

0:04:050:04:09

Let's see where we go.

0:04:090:04:10

We're quite similar beasts really.

0:04:100:04:12

If I can steer him away from the furnishings, I might have him.

0:04:120:04:17

Yes, good plan, Bingo.

0:04:170:04:19

Don't draw any attention to the furniture.

0:04:190:04:21

Don't go near it.

0:04:210:04:22

Now, this has Mr Hearnden written all over it, doesn't it?

0:04:220:04:26

Hm, you're asking for trouble. He'll see you.

0:04:260:04:29

Oh, look, here he is...salivating.

0:04:290:04:33

We've got a three-seater sofa and two matching armchairs.

0:04:330:04:36

So, this suite would've been made in the 1930s.

0:04:360:04:38

It's never been recovered.

0:04:380:04:40

Art Deco suite. Very desirable,

0:04:400:04:43

but it needs a fortune spending on it.

0:04:430:04:45

There's stuffing coming out the arms,

0:04:450:04:47

there's legs missing on the back,

0:04:470:04:48

but the frame is quite extraordinary.

0:04:480:04:51

Well, he's definitely interested, which means James' plan,

0:04:510:04:55

much like the sofa, is already in tatters.

0:04:550:04:58

Oh, well, if you can't beat them, join them.

0:04:580:05:00

Here you are, lot 35.

0:05:000:05:02

Got a very nice velvet-covered armchair.

0:05:020:05:05

Tub-shaped armchair. Late 19th century.

0:05:050:05:08

We've got this sort of swirlingness here before the Art Deco period

0:05:080:05:12

of the early 20th century.

0:05:120:05:14

Hm, might be a good idea to get out of Jonty's comfort zone, James,

0:05:140:05:18

and find something that has Bingo written all over it.

0:05:180:05:21

What about a buffalo?

0:05:210:05:23

Now, in the whole saleroom, this is the best item.

0:05:230:05:27

Here we are.

0:05:270:05:29

We've got this fabulous Chinese figure made of hardwood.

0:05:290:05:35

The detail is just phenomenal.

0:05:350:05:38

You can see the swirls of its hair.

0:05:380:05:41

I think this is definitely not a reproduction.

0:05:410:05:45

This has a good late-19th-century feel about it.

0:05:450:05:48

And the animal kingdom becomes a bit of a theme with old Bingo.

0:05:480:05:52

Next, he's eyeing up a couple of figures.

0:05:520:05:55

Nice little model of a donkey.

0:05:550:05:58

Donkeys are rather sweet characters.

0:05:580:06:00

They have really sort of rather sorrowful eyes.

0:06:000:06:02

And then, we've got a lovely Scottie dog,

0:06:020:06:04

this time Royal Copenhagen.

0:06:040:06:07

So, Danish. And you just always check the extremities.

0:06:070:06:11

You check them for chips.

0:06:110:06:13

Sometimes the eyes can lie, so always use your hands

0:06:130:06:16

and you can feel them.

0:06:160:06:17

Two quite nice items. 286.

0:06:170:06:20

Gives no estimate, but a Beswick figure like that must be...

0:06:200:06:24

..£30, and the fellow 20-25.

0:06:240:06:28

So, anything under about £40 will be good news, really.

0:06:280:06:32

Yes. Quietly confident James marks out the catalogue,

0:06:320:06:36

hoping for something to bray about later.

0:06:360:06:38

Jonty has been scouring the main room

0:06:380:06:40

and he's found something large and shiny.

0:06:400:06:44

Now, you don't necessarily need to be an antiques expert

0:06:440:06:46

to know what this is.

0:06:460:06:48

It's a wedding cake stand.

0:06:480:06:50

So, you've got this mirrored top and you've got this shaped exterior.

0:06:500:06:54

And I suppose it has a feeling of being Edwardian.

0:06:540:06:56

Just going to see where it goes because if it's cheap enough,

0:06:560:06:59

it could be mine

0:06:590:07:00

and selling it could be a piece of cake.

0:07:000:07:03

There are hundreds of lots to choose from,

0:07:030:07:05

and our experts mustn't forget the auction will be split

0:07:050:07:08

over three areas.

0:07:080:07:09

James heads outside for a look and soon spots a wine rack.

0:07:090:07:13

What have we got? We've got ten across

0:07:140:07:16

and more than ten down,

0:07:160:07:18

so it's probably about almost ten cases' worth of wine

0:07:180:07:21

just disappears here.

0:07:210:07:23

It's quite a nice item.

0:07:230:07:24

I might have to rush out for that.

0:07:240:07:26

Yes, don't forget about it, mind.

0:07:260:07:28

Back inside, Jonty has navigated his way around the room

0:07:280:07:32

to an intriguing item.

0:07:320:07:34

Now, this is a really very early sat nav.

0:07:340:07:37

Have a look at this.

0:07:370:07:38

This is just absolutely wonderful. This is the Auto-Mapic.

0:07:380:07:43

Probably made in the 1950s,

0:07:430:07:44

so it's actually got a very early sort of plastic exterior to it.

0:07:440:07:48

But it's got 15 maps in one. Just extraordinary.

0:07:480:07:53

So, here we've got the numbers. If you were to press one,

0:07:530:07:57

you then end up, I hope...

0:07:570:08:00

There we go.

0:08:000:08:01

We've got Cornwall.

0:08:010:08:02

I just think this is really collectable.

0:08:020:08:04

Very desirable. Just something really quirky, something different.

0:08:040:08:07

Well, that's it, chaps. No more viewing time.

0:08:070:08:10

The bidding is about to begin,

0:08:100:08:12

and it's Jonty who's standing to attention first.

0:08:120:08:15

So, coming up is the Art Deco suite.

0:08:160:08:18

In the catalogue, it's estimated between £20 and £40.

0:08:180:08:20

If I can get it for that, I will retire straightaway.

0:08:200:08:23

Yes, you should be so lucky.

0:08:230:08:25

He bids, but the price goes straight up to £360.

0:08:250:08:30

He's still interested, though.

0:08:300:08:31

360 now.

0:08:310:08:33

380. 380 bid. 380. 400.

0:08:330:08:37

-400.

-He soon reaches his limit. Poor old Hitman.

0:08:370:08:40

But James isn't gloating.

0:08:400:08:43

I can take small pleasure in Jonty not getting that item,

0:08:430:08:46

but it bodes rather badly for me.

0:08:460:08:48

Yes. If there's some heavy bidders in the room,

0:08:480:08:50

it could be expensive to get the good stuff.

0:08:500:08:53

And so, it proves for the 19th-century tub chair

0:08:530:08:55

that James wanted.

0:08:550:08:56

He starts off at £55, but it's soon out of his league.

0:08:560:09:00

It is bid at 130.

0:09:020:09:04

And selling...

0:09:040:09:05

GAVEL BANGS

0:09:050:09:06

It's not going well, is it?

0:09:060:09:08

Dear, oh, dear.

0:09:080:09:10

No, James, it's not.

0:09:100:09:12

This is rather worrying, isn't it?

0:09:120:09:14

While Jonty holds his ground, James decides to nip outdoors

0:09:140:09:17

to make sure he doesn't miss the giant wine rack,

0:09:170:09:20

but he's worried about these prices.

0:09:200:09:22

(You know, I don't want to buy it too expensively.)

0:09:230:09:25

What is it worth? 30 or 40 quid.

0:09:250:09:27

And here we go. Lot 702, then,

0:09:270:09:29

next on the list, which is the large wine rack.

0:09:290:09:31

£10 there. We've got 10.

0:09:310:09:33

12. £12 there now. 15. 15. 18.

0:09:330:09:36

18 behind you.

0:09:360:09:37

£18. 20.

0:09:370:09:40

James is soon competing against just one other person,

0:09:400:09:42

and our boy bids £40.

0:09:420:09:44

£40 is the bid.

0:09:450:09:47

45. 45 there. 50.

0:09:470:09:50

He's not going to risk losing it.

0:09:500:09:52

£50. 55. £55.

0:09:520:09:55

55. 60.

0:09:550:09:56

£60 now from the bid. All done at 60?

0:09:560:09:59

-HE BANGS PEN DOWN

-Yes, he got it,

0:10:000:10:02

but paid twice what he wanted.

0:10:020:10:04

I had to buy something,

0:10:040:10:05

and I certainly bought something expensive, but there we are.

0:10:050:10:08

We're in...we're in the market now.

0:10:080:10:10

Yes, and that usually starts momentum.

0:10:130:10:15

Let's not forget the auction room fees for the wine rack.

0:10:150:10:18

James pays a total of £70.80.

0:10:180:10:20

So, his campaign has taken off

0:10:220:10:24

and next he bids on a recent Poole Pottery plate commemorating

0:10:240:10:27

a display by the Red Arrows.

0:10:270:10:29

£60 bid. 65 I've got.

0:10:310:10:33

70 quickly, if you want it.

0:10:330:10:35

No, he doesn't. Put it down.

0:10:350:10:37

-GAVEL BANGS

-Red Arrows,

0:10:370:10:38

everyone loves the Red Arrows, don't they?

0:10:380:10:41

He lands the lot for £76.70 including fees.

0:10:420:10:46

It's a lovely design.

0:10:470:10:49

It's great fun, and it's nice and sound.

0:10:490:10:52

Lovely lettering of this lovely eggshell glaze.

0:10:520:10:55

Now, Jonty is not having much luck.

0:10:560:10:58

He's been bidding on lots of things,

0:10:580:11:00

but the prices keep going way too high.

0:11:000:11:03

Dear old Jonty's gone rather pale today, in spite of the sunshine.

0:11:030:11:07

(I think he's in trouble.)

0:11:070:11:09

He's yet to buy an item.

0:11:090:11:11

I feel a bit like a swan,

0:11:110:11:13

sort of gracious on the top,

0:11:130:11:16

but, all of a sudden, I feel my feet are paddling somewhat.

0:11:160:11:19

Yes, actually, Jonty, you haven't even got a toe in the water.

0:11:210:11:23

But it's a different story at the back of the room.

0:11:230:11:26

James is firing on all cylinders and soon buys a pair of door pushes.

0:11:260:11:30

At £30 over there.

0:11:310:11:33

GAVEL BANGS

0:11:330:11:34

Adding the fees, he pays £35.40.

0:11:340:11:37

Got this nice pair of bell pushes.

0:11:400:11:42

They've got a ceramic boss here, which is a sort of pottery boss.

0:11:420:11:47

Sort of gives me the idea that they might be 1890, 1900.

0:11:480:11:53

They're in that sort of region.

0:11:530:11:55

It's got a very close grain here.

0:11:550:11:57

I would say they're mahogany surrounds.

0:11:570:11:59

So, when they're tidied up a bit,

0:11:590:12:01

these two might look a lot better than they do now.

0:12:010:12:06

While Jonty continues to flounder in the shallows,

0:12:060:12:08

it's not long before Bingo dives in again.

0:12:080:12:11

The 19th-century buffalo group and stand is up and this he loves.

0:12:110:12:15

-I'm bid £70.

-Bidding kicks off at 70 and Bingo's straight in.

0:12:170:12:21

85. 90. 95. 100.

0:12:210:12:25

But it goes up.

0:12:250:12:27

170. 180.

0:12:270:12:28

190. 200. 220.

0:12:290:12:32

And up.

0:12:320:12:33

280 over there it is. 300.

0:12:330:12:36

320. 340.

0:12:360:12:39

And up,

0:12:390:12:40

but James sticks with it throughout.

0:12:400:12:42

At 460.

0:12:420:12:45

480. Lady's back in. 480.

0:12:450:12:48

500. 500.

0:12:480:12:50

It's 500 right at the back.

0:12:500:12:52

GAVEL BANGS

0:12:530:12:54

HE SIGHS

0:12:540:12:55

Wow, he spent almost all of his cash on one item.

0:12:550:12:59

Unbelievable.

0:12:590:13:01

I haven't bought a thing yet. Help!

0:13:010:13:03

Yes, James wasn't letting that beastie get away.

0:13:040:13:07

Including fees, he pays a whopping £590,

0:13:070:13:11

far and away his biggest purchase yet,

0:13:110:13:13

and the tension is getting to him.

0:13:130:13:15

-The old ticker's racing now.

-HE LAUGHS

0:13:160:13:19

His heart rate is up.

0:13:200:13:21

Maybe time to take a breather and catch up on the figures.

0:13:210:13:24

Both our experts arrived in Wareham

0:13:250:13:27

with £1,000 of their own money to spend.

0:13:270:13:30

James has made four purchases and spent masses,

0:13:300:13:33

nearly £773,

0:13:330:13:35

so has £227 left in his kitty.

0:13:350:13:38

Jonty's game couldn't be more different.

0:13:420:13:44

He's bought absolutely nothing yet,

0:13:440:13:46

so still has his entire budget

0:13:460:13:48

left to spend.

0:13:480:13:49

So, how are they feeling at the halfway stage?

0:13:520:13:55

So, dear boy,

0:13:550:13:58

-you've spent almost all your money on one lot.

-Yeah. I know.

0:13:580:14:00

It's amazing, isn't it?

0:14:000:14:01

You know what it's like, when you get on the auction

0:14:010:14:04

you get on hook, don't you?

0:14:040:14:05

-Yeah, yeah.

-They keep reeling you in.

0:14:050:14:08

You've bought everything, but I've bought nothing yet.

0:14:080:14:10

-Not a sausage.

-You'd better get going.

0:14:100:14:12

-I know.

-You know, all the furniture's just gone, hasn't it?

0:14:120:14:14

Yeah, it's all gone.

0:14:140:14:16

OK. Go on, get in and get bidding, Jonty.

0:14:160:14:18

Well, there's plenty of lovely lots left,

0:14:190:14:21

and Jonty knows he has to buy something.

0:14:210:14:24

He jumps straight in

0:14:240:14:25

on a geographical directory of Scotland.

0:14:250:14:28

The first lot I'm interested in buying

0:14:290:14:30

is something called the Gazetteer Of Scotland.

0:14:300:14:34

It's two volumes and it's dated 1848.

0:14:340:14:39

It's really lovely.

0:14:390:14:40

They've got maps inside, so it's all about the history of Scotland.

0:14:400:14:43

You know, a good 150 years ago.

0:14:430:14:45

there's no estimate in the catalogue.

0:14:450:14:47

Goes to the highest bidder.

0:14:470:14:49

-10.

-Here, sir.

-10. And 15.

0:14:490:14:52

20. 25 in front.

0:14:520:14:55

30. 35.

0:14:550:14:58

40. 45 now on the net.

0:14:580:15:00

50. 55. 60.

0:15:000:15:04

And selling at 60...

0:15:040:15:06

GAVEL BANGS That's a relief. Phew.

0:15:070:15:09

I should coco! Jonty finally breaks his duck.

0:15:100:15:13

The Scotland books cost £70.80 with fees.

0:15:130:15:16

It's amazing what you find in auction rooms up and down the country

0:15:170:15:21

because this is a collection of books based on Scotland

0:15:210:15:24

and Scottish history.

0:15:240:15:25

This smaller book here is restored,

0:15:250:15:27

and you can tell it's restored just by looking on the outside here.

0:15:270:15:30

It's been rebound.

0:15:300:15:32

Almost 200 years old this book.

0:15:320:15:34

And we have another almanac.

0:15:340:15:37

Two books, two volumes printed slightly later, 1848.

0:15:370:15:42

So, who am I going to sell them to?

0:15:420:15:43

Well, I need to find somebody who loves Scottish history.

0:15:430:15:47

So, let's hope he's on a roll.

0:15:470:15:49

Next up, the wedding cake stand.

0:15:490:15:51

Can it be his to have and to hold?

0:15:510:15:53

It's in the room at 65.

0:15:530:15:56

-GAVEL BANGS

-Yes, he gets it.

0:15:560:15:57

And, including fees, he pay £76.70,

0:15:570:16:00

but he doesn't stop there.

0:16:000:16:02

He outbids the rest of the room for a silver pincushion

0:16:020:16:05

in the shape of a jockey's cap.

0:16:050:16:06

Jonty pays £41.30 including commission.

0:16:060:16:10

Small is sometimes beautiful. That's... Have a look at that.

0:16:110:16:14

It's about 110-120 years of age. It's silver.

0:16:140:16:17

It's a little bit dirty, but that doesn't necessarily matter.

0:16:170:16:21

I may try and clean it a bit if I possibly can,

0:16:210:16:23

but, on the inside, the red parts here, is spongy,

0:16:230:16:27

so you actually apply the pins to this little, sponged area there.

0:16:270:16:31

Somebody's going to fall in love with that.

0:16:310:16:33

Hopefully, I can sell it to somebody who loves horses,

0:16:330:16:35

possibly even a jockey.

0:16:350:16:37

But I think that's just great fun.

0:16:370:16:39

Humour is really important.

0:16:390:16:41

Makes me smile.

0:16:410:16:43

Oh, good. It feels like he needs something happy to happen

0:16:430:16:46

and it means he's suddenly catching up with James,

0:16:460:16:49

three purchases to Bingo's four.

0:16:490:16:51

Mr Braxton could extend his lead again, though.

0:16:510:16:54

His Beswick donkey and Copenhagen Scottie dog are about to come up.

0:16:540:16:57

25. 30. 35. 40. 45 at the back.

0:16:590:17:04

50, anybody else?

0:17:040:17:06

Selling at 45.

0:17:060:17:09

What, an old donkey?

0:17:090:17:10

Hm, has he paid over the odds?

0:17:120:17:14

The lot cost £53.10 including fees,

0:17:140:17:16

and James thinks he's backed a winner.

0:17:160:17:19

Pleased with that.

0:17:200:17:21

So, Jonty's still behind in the buying stakes.

0:17:230:17:26

He's determined to up his game

0:17:260:17:27

and decides to have a go on an Art Deco vase.

0:17:270:17:30

He makes a single bid.

0:17:300:17:32

85. 85 first bidder.

0:17:320:17:35

GAVEL BANGS

0:17:350:17:37

So, that's his fourth purchase.

0:17:380:17:39

He pays £100.30 including fees.

0:17:390:17:43

Bit of Art Deco here. This is my 1930s flower vase.

0:17:440:17:49

I've got a stem support, which is loose inside there,

0:17:490:17:51

so I need to take care of that.

0:17:510:17:53

If you look round the outside, you can see how very simply

0:17:530:17:56

this has been decorated.

0:17:560:17:57

It has all the hallmarks of looking like Clarice Cliff,

0:17:570:18:01

very simple style of decoration,

0:18:010:18:04

lots of very simple brushstrokes there, but it's not.

0:18:040:18:07

The quality's not quite there. It's made by a factory called Myott,

0:18:070:18:11

which is collectable.

0:18:110:18:12

I'm hopefully going to sell that to either a dealer who sells similar

0:18:120:18:16

kind of ceramic wares

0:18:160:18:18

or, of course, anybody who collects Art Deco.

0:18:180:18:21

Jonty's soon back on his feet and it's for one of the items

0:18:210:18:24

he viewed at the start of the day.

0:18:240:18:26

-Oh, here's my map. Here's my map. Here's my map!

-20 bid now.

0:18:270:18:31

20. 25 I've got. 30.

0:18:310:18:34

35 right at the back.

0:18:340:18:36

There's a lot of interest in the room

0:18:360:18:37

and the map shoots past its estimate of £100.

0:18:370:18:41

150. 160.

0:18:420:18:45

170 anywhere?

0:18:450:18:47

In the room at 160.

0:18:470:18:48

-GAVEL BANGS

-160.

0:18:480:18:50

So, Jonty holds his nerve and, including commission,

0:18:500:18:53

pays £188.80 for his sliding map,

0:18:530:18:56

far and away his biggest purchase of the day so far.

0:18:560:19:00

Absolute fortune I've paid for it. Absolute fortune,

0:19:010:19:04

but I love it to bits.

0:19:040:19:05

Well, that should make it easier to sell, then.

0:19:050:19:07

He's now back in the game, level with James at five items each.

0:19:070:19:11

Bingo has been quite quiet recently, clearly biding his time,

0:19:110:19:15

but Jonty is now on a roll.

0:19:150:19:17

He suddenly buys two brass Meiji period Japanese boxes,

0:19:170:19:21

and they're not cheap, no.

0:19:210:19:22

£260, selling...

0:19:220:19:26

-GAVEL BANGS

-260.

0:19:260:19:28

Add in the fees and the boxes cost even more, £306.80.

0:19:280:19:32

A lot of money. So, why did he decide to suddenly go for them?

0:19:320:19:36

Mid 19th century. Really very good quality indeed.

0:19:380:19:42

I just love the detailing on it.

0:19:420:19:43

Look at this first one here, for instance.

0:19:430:19:46

There is applied decoration to the top and to all sides as well.

0:19:460:19:50

Nothing on the interior at all.

0:19:500:19:51

It's really quite plain on the interior,

0:19:510:19:53

which is quite interesting really.

0:19:530:19:55

Just as the same as this box here. Look at the detailing on the outside.

0:19:550:20:00

This one is really exquisite.

0:20:000:20:02

So, have I paid too much money for them?

0:20:020:20:04

This is an area that I don't necessarily

0:20:040:20:07

spend too much time dealing in,

0:20:070:20:09

so it's going to be really fascinating.

0:20:090:20:11

Now, there's a challenge.

0:20:110:20:12

Ooh, we like a challenge.

0:20:130:20:15

Jonty Hearnden always pushing the limits.

0:20:150:20:17

Now, there's a more immediate difficulty.

0:20:170:20:20

We're getting into the last load of lots and the room has thinned out.

0:20:200:20:23

Does that mean all the good stuff's gone,

0:20:230:20:25

or is it the perfect opportunity to pick up the best bargains?

0:20:250:20:29

James tries his luck on a Victorian tapestry panel

0:20:290:20:32

that comes, oddly, with a silk kimono.

0:20:320:20:34

10 then. Thank you. £10 bid.

0:20:360:20:38

15 anywhere?

0:20:380:20:40

-GAVEL BANGS

-Thank you.

0:20:400:20:42

Hmm, no-one else bids. Could be ominous.

0:20:420:20:44

Anyway, including fees, he pays £11.80.

0:20:440:20:48

Time for a proper look.

0:20:480:20:50

I've come outside and it's such a lovely day.

0:20:500:20:52

It was getting stuffy in there.

0:20:520:20:53

But I wish I hadn't now because I suddenly see in the daylight,

0:20:530:20:57

you know, these big cracks here.

0:20:570:20:59

It's where the material has deteriorated due to sunlight.

0:20:590:21:03

This is an old pole screen.

0:21:030:21:05

It's got sort of rather nice Regency motifs here,

0:21:050:21:08

but a very Victorian tapestry scene.

0:21:080:21:10

A cornucopia here, a bird. It's all a bit sentimental in a way.

0:21:100:21:16

£10 and I got a nice, heavy piece of silk thrown in as well.

0:21:160:21:20

A silk kimono big enough even to fit me.

0:21:200:21:23

Bingo Braxton in a kimono, now there's an image.

0:21:230:21:26

But no time to give us a twirl, no, no,

0:21:260:21:29

he's straight back to the bidding.

0:21:290:21:30

He's been waiting for two

0:21:300:21:32

19th-century wooden boxes to come up.

0:21:320:21:34

£85. In the room it is.

0:21:360:21:37

Very cheap, isn't it? Two work boxes, 85 quid.

0:21:370:21:42

-BANGS GAVEL

-85.

0:21:420:21:44

With fees, he pays £100.30 and it's his last purchase of the day.

0:21:440:21:48

He's all sewn up.

0:21:480:21:50

I've got two work boxes here.

0:21:510:21:53

This is the earlier.

0:21:530:21:55

Probably about 1820, 1830 by the sarcophagus shape here.

0:21:550:22:01

Nice hardwood fellow.

0:22:010:22:03

The weaker of the two.

0:22:030:22:04

This is the better, the inlaid fellow.

0:22:040:22:06

Nice marquetry, contra-marquetry,

0:22:060:22:09

hardwood and a lighter wood,

0:22:090:22:10

maybe a maple, mid 19th century, about 1850.

0:22:100:22:15

So, there we have it. Their trip to Dorset has borne fruit.

0:22:150:22:18

But what's the damage?

0:22:180:22:20

Both our experts started the day with £1,000 of their own money.

0:22:200:22:24

Jonty had one of the slowest starts in Put Your Money history,

0:22:240:22:28

but he pulled it back

0:22:280:22:29

and spent £784.70 on six items.

0:22:290:22:33

James, however, found things much easier.

0:22:350:22:37

He leaves with seven lots

0:22:370:22:38

having spent a massive £938.10.

0:22:380:22:42

So, what do they make of each other's hauls?

0:22:440:22:46

That's a big fellow, isn't it? I didn't see you buy that.

0:22:480:22:51

It's seen few wild parties, hasn't it?

0:22:510:22:53

It has seen some wild parties, hasn't it?

0:22:530:22:55

It's very good.

0:22:550:22:56

-I saw you buy this...

-Yeah.

-..and the whole room went silent.

0:22:560:22:59

HE LAUGHS

0:22:590:23:01

And you were perspiring.

0:23:010:23:02

That was a lot of money, but the quality is outstanding, isn't it?

0:23:020:23:06

It is. So, it took me all the way to 500.

0:23:060:23:08

I must say, no need to go to the gym, my heart was racing.

0:23:080:23:13

I think my fun item today has to be this road map.

0:23:130:23:17

I think it's just great.

0:23:170:23:18

You've got not only one road map, but you've got 15 in there as well.

0:23:180:23:22

-Oh, I see! So, it's back and front?

-Yes, yes.

-Isn't that clever?

0:23:220:23:25

Yeah. Well, I think we've done pretty well actually,

0:23:250:23:28

-but who'd have thought we would end up with this?

-I know.

0:23:280:23:30

I didn't intend to buy any of this. Did you?

0:23:300:23:33

Absolutely not. I bought it because...

0:23:330:23:35

You bought it because you were a desperate man at one point.

0:23:350:23:38

THEY LAUGH

0:23:380:23:39

So, all we've got to do now is sell it.

0:23:390:23:41

Yeah. Easy peasy.

0:23:410:23:44

-Good luck to you, mate.

-Good luck to you.

0:23:440:23:46

So, it's time our buoyant buyers became super sellers.

0:23:490:23:53

They need to seek out prime purchasers with deep purses

0:23:530:23:56

and bottomless wallets as they bid to outdo each other

0:23:560:23:59

in the search for stellar profits.

0:23:590:24:01

They must conduct research, hit the phones, use their contacts

0:24:010:24:05

and scour the country

0:24:050:24:06

to match all their items with potential customers.

0:24:060:24:09

Any profits they make will go to charities of their choice,

0:24:090:24:12

so they must really work for their money.

0:24:120:24:15

Time, then, to look over their wondrous wares.

0:24:150:24:17

And back at Hitman headquarters in Oxfordshire,

0:24:170:24:20

Jonty is under pressure.

0:24:200:24:23

Now, I've got a confession to make.

0:24:230:24:25

That auction sale was just so tough.

0:24:250:24:28

I think everything I bought was just a bit too expensive.

0:24:280:24:32

The vase I was hoping to pay for less.

0:24:320:24:34

Great object, very saleable, but will I make a profit?

0:24:340:24:38

And the road map here, just in front of me,

0:24:380:24:40

I wanted to pay half the amount of money that I did pay for it.

0:24:400:24:44

I love my little pincushion.

0:24:440:24:45

That's a great object. Somebody will buy that.

0:24:450:24:48

Now, my Japanese boxes, fantastic quality.

0:24:480:24:51

Really top draw.

0:24:510:24:53

The question is,

0:24:530:24:54

who on earth is going to return a profit for me

0:24:540:24:56

on those lovely things?

0:24:560:24:58

And my books...likewise.

0:24:580:25:00

Really interesting objects.

0:25:000:25:02

But I'm not really into antiquarian book-selling,

0:25:020:25:06

so that's going to be a real tough challenge for me.

0:25:060:25:09

My cake stand, what fun.

0:25:090:25:10

And also, I realised after the auction

0:25:100:25:13

that this lovely box was part of it too,

0:25:130:25:16

so not only have I got my cake stand and my knife,

0:25:160:25:19

but it comes in this lovely sort of travelling box.

0:25:190:25:22

So, I've got some great objects.

0:25:220:25:24

The question is, who on earth am I going to sell them to?

0:25:240:25:27

Oh, dear, he's worried. Better get his skates on.

0:25:270:25:31

Over at James's joint in East Sussex,

0:25:310:25:33

Bingo's piled it all up in his garden,

0:25:330:25:35

and he's feeling all positive.

0:25:350:25:37

This little lot cost me a lot of money.

0:25:380:25:41

That's my big fellow over there.

0:25:410:25:43

Over £500 for the buffalo and the figures.

0:25:430:25:47

But I think that's going to give me my big profit.

0:25:470:25:51

The wine rack, the most expensive at auction this year at about £70.

0:25:510:25:57

I think I'm going to have to go to London to sell that.

0:25:570:26:00

And then we've got the bell pushes. They were a nice, cheap lot.

0:26:000:26:03

We've got two lovely boxes there.

0:26:030:26:05

We've got this sewing box and the other box there.

0:26:050:26:08

Nice bit of parquetry. About £50 each.

0:26:080:26:11

Two little fellows here. We've got a lovely Beswick donkey

0:26:110:26:15

and Royal Copenhagen. This is porcelain,

0:26:150:26:17

the nice Scottie dog.

0:26:170:26:19

Slightly cheaper, the pole screen, the tapestry fellow,

0:26:190:26:22

and the Red Arrows plate,

0:26:220:26:24

that was over £70, made by Poole Pottery.

0:26:240:26:27

I'm going to have to work hard on that

0:26:270:26:29

and all the rest of these items.

0:26:290:26:31

Oh, come on, chaps, positive mental attitude.

0:26:320:26:35

If anyone can find buyers, it's these two titans of the trade,

0:26:350:26:39

but, remember, until they've shaken on it

0:26:390:26:41

and the money has changed hands, no deal is truly sealed.

0:26:410:26:44

The Hitman is first to arrange an appointment.

0:26:450:26:48

His contact, James, runs an antique centre in Tetsworth

0:26:480:26:51

and he knows a lady who's visiting from China,

0:26:510:26:54

looking for items to put in her private museum over there.

0:26:540:26:57

James thinks she'll like the Japanese boxes

0:26:570:26:59

and, helpfully, has offered to translate.

0:26:590:27:02

So, do you think she'll fall in love with my boxes?

0:27:020:27:05

Well, we will see because she's an expert.

0:27:050:27:07

-Ah.

-OK? She was a very tough lady to a bargain.

0:27:070:27:10

-Shall we go and meet her? Come on.

-No problem.

0:27:100:27:13

A tough lady to bargain with? Uh-oh.

0:27:140:27:16

The boxes are Jonty's most expensive purchase as well,

0:27:160:27:19

-owing him just over £300.

-Nice to meet you.

0:27:190:27:22

So, here are my beautiful boxes.

0:27:220:27:24

Date-wise, they are about 120 years old,

0:27:250:27:29

and all of this has been applied to the box.

0:27:290:27:33

But this is the really good quality one.

0:27:330:27:35

What she said is it's a very fine quality.

0:27:350:27:37

It is. Yes, I'm glad that you approve.

0:27:370:27:40

Her idea is try keep it this one in the private museum.

0:27:400:27:44

Ah. Into a museum, OK.

0:27:440:27:45

It's such a beautiful piece from Oriental style, you know.

0:27:450:27:48

This one is £450.

0:27:480:27:52

This box is free.

0:27:520:27:54

SHE SPEAKS CHINESE

0:27:560:27:58

-OK. What she said...

-Yes.

0:27:590:28:01

..she offers you the first price of 280.

0:28:010:28:04

Oh!

0:28:040:28:05

425. I will come down.

0:28:050:28:07

SHE CONFERS IN CHINESE

0:28:080:28:10

She's going up to 300.

0:28:130:28:16

300... Ooh, no. You have to go up much more.

0:28:160:28:19

360.

0:28:190:28:20

-360?

-That's a very good figure.

0:28:200:28:22

I say 380 and we shake hands.

0:28:220:28:25

OK.

0:28:270:28:28

OK? HE SPEAKS CHINESE

0:28:280:28:29

-I understand that.

-Great.

0:28:290:28:30

-Thank you very much.

-You don't need me anymore.

0:28:300:28:32

-We do the deal, now you don't need me.

-Thank you very much.

0:28:320:28:35

Well, that's not a bad start at all.

0:28:350:28:37

The boxes close a profit of £73.20.

0:28:370:28:41

And who'd have predicted they'd end up in a museum in China?

0:28:410:28:44

Hm! From the Far East to the far southwest of England,

0:28:440:28:48

James is near Lands' End

0:28:480:28:50

and he's starting off with the wine rack

0:28:500:28:52

that he thinks he paid too much for,

0:28:520:28:53

so this could take some bottle.

0:28:530:28:55

Where do I sell a wine rack?

0:28:560:28:58

A private bar with a lovely cellar.

0:28:580:29:00

A wine merchant keeps everything in cases,

0:29:000:29:02

but who keeps everything in racks?

0:29:020:29:04

Well, publicans, of course.

0:29:040:29:06

And I've come to see Anita at Logan Rock Inn.

0:29:060:29:10

Blimey, O'Reilly, they don't get any lighter, do they? Hello, Anita.

0:29:100:29:13

-Good. Hello, James. Goodness me!

-Good to see you.

0:29:130:29:16

-It's got 12 going up and 10 going across.

-Right.

0:29:160:29:19

120 bottles in all.

0:29:190:29:21

It should do a week.

0:29:210:29:23

It should do... Oh, you're busy here, aren't you?

0:29:230:29:25

SHE LAUGHS

0:29:250:29:26

Price-wise, we've got 120. It will take 120 bottles.

0:29:260:29:32

How about £1 a bottle?

0:29:320:29:34

That sounds pretty good to me actually, James.

0:29:340:29:36

-Does it?

-It does indeed, yes.

0:29:360:29:37

-Oh. Do you want it?

-Shall we shake on it?

0:29:370:29:39

Thank you, Anita. That's really kind.

0:29:390:29:41

Well, that proved to be very straightforward.

0:29:410:29:44

He found the perfect buyer.

0:29:440:29:45

James racks up a profit of £49.20.

0:29:450:29:49

Now, Jonty has moved onto his Art Deco vase that cost him £100.

0:29:490:29:54

He wants to try and sell it to Lorraine,

0:29:540:29:56

who owns an Art Deco-themed tea room in Henley.

0:29:560:29:58

And the Hitman has come dressed accordingly.

0:29:580:30:00

It's enough to put you off your muffins. Oof.

0:30:000:30:03

-What do you think?

-I think that looks amazing.

-Yeah?

0:30:040:30:08

Now, Lorraine, this is the vase I wanted to show you.

0:30:080:30:11

I thought this would be perfect for your restaurant

0:30:110:30:14

because it's absolutely of the period.

0:30:140:30:18

Oh, it is. It's definitely Art Deco.

0:30:180:30:21

So, you can see how simply it's decorated,

0:30:210:30:23

which is the fashion of the time.

0:30:230:30:26

So, this is a vase made by Myott, which is a company based...

0:30:260:30:29

-They were based in Stoke on Trent.

-It's a good name.

-Absolutely!

0:30:290:30:32

What I find so interesting is if you think about the Edwardian period,

0:30:320:30:37

which was what, turn-of-the-century? This was made in the 1930s.

0:30:370:30:42

And if you think of the leap from that sort of heavy Victorian,

0:30:420:30:45

-highly decorated forms...

-Gild and everything.

0:30:450:30:49

Yes, to something very, very simple, very angular...

0:30:490:30:53

Yeah, I think that's lovely.

0:30:530:30:55

-Do you like it?

-Really lovely.

-I'm only asking £175 for this vase.

0:30:550:30:59

-I'd think around the 100 mark.

-Oh, dear.

0:31:000:31:03

I can do 160.

0:31:030:31:06

What about 150?

0:31:080:31:10

-150?

-Mm-hm.

-Go on, then.

0:31:100:31:13

-OK.

-It's yours.

-We'll do a deal.

-I'm happy with that.

-OK.

0:31:130:31:15

Thanks, Lorraine, that's great! Excellent!

0:31:150:31:18

Now, what to think about my attire? Do you think it's really good?

0:31:180:31:20

I think it really suits you. And I've got a job for you.

0:31:200:31:23

If I, you know, can't sell any antiques anymore,

0:31:230:31:26

I can work here for you?

0:31:260:31:27

I think you'd make more money here, actually.

0:31:270:31:29

Hm, that sounds all right.

0:31:290:31:30

Because he didn't do badly on the vase - £49.70 profit,

0:31:300:31:34

but he does have some scrubbing to do.

0:31:340:31:36

HE SIGHS

0:31:380:31:39

Second thoughts, I think I'll stick to antiques.

0:31:390:31:42

Aw, not such a nice uniform, though.

0:31:420:31:44

In Cornwall, James has moved on to Penzance.

0:31:440:31:47

He sells his two wooden boxes to an antiques dealer.

0:31:470:31:50

-110 the two, then.

-110, you got yourself a deal.

-Yeah?

0:31:500:31:54

-Come on, Tricia.

-OK, then.

0:31:540:31:56

But that only brings in a profit of £9.70.

0:31:560:32:00

So, let's hope he does better with his 19th-century buffalo

0:32:020:32:05

and let's be honest if this does badly, he's done for.

0:32:050:32:09

Still in Cornwall, James has one man in mind.

0:32:090:32:13

I've come to see Chris, a respected dealer,

0:32:130:32:15

who I know likes a bit of oriental art.

0:32:150:32:19

Well, let's hope he doesn't mind paying for it.

0:32:190:32:22

The carving owes James £590.

0:32:220:32:26

Now, this... I took a bit of a punt on it. I like the fact...

0:32:260:32:30

..the sort of anatomical detail.

0:32:300:32:32

There's nothing sort of stylized or podgy about this water buffalo.

0:32:320:32:36

-He's very haunchy.

-I mean, the detail is fantastic, really.

0:32:360:32:42

However, the figures on top are not so good.

0:32:420:32:46

-The hands and feet are very naive.

-They are naive, aren't they?

0:32:460:32:51

More than one carver, do you think? I mean, it has to be, I think.

0:32:510:32:54

-I can't see...

-Do you think so?

0:32:540:32:55

I can't see the person who carved all that hair

0:32:550:32:58

carving those big, fat fingers.

0:32:580:33:00

My guess is 1820 onwards.

0:33:000:33:02

What I'm really looking for...

0:33:020:33:03

I'm looking for to try and get around about sort of...

0:33:030:33:09

800, 900 for this fellow.

0:33:090:33:11

I was just looking at it as sort of a £500, £600 level.

0:33:110:33:15

Would you touch left hands because I see you're rather damaged

0:33:150:33:19

on your right at £800?

0:33:190:33:21

No. I'm going to make a final offer.

0:33:210:33:24

-Don't back yourself into a corner, Chris.

-700.

0:33:240:33:27

-700.

-But that would be... That's an absolute final,

0:33:270:33:30

-please-don't-come-back-with-an -alternative.

-Really?

0:33:300:33:32

This is why I didn't want you to back yourself into a corner.

0:33:320:33:35

I will give you a final offer of 750.

0:33:350:33:38

Oh, I don't like to go back on my word when I've said...

0:33:380:33:40

You didn't go back on your word

0:33:400:33:41

because I gave you the let-out clause.

0:33:410:33:43

-Come on, Chris, put it there.

-750.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:33:430:33:45

-OK.

-It's yours.

0:33:450:33:47

Bravo, Bingo! There were little hints of desperation there,

0:33:470:33:50

but he held his nerve and his big investment paid off.

0:33:500:33:54

James makes a very healthy profit of £160.

0:33:540:33:59

So, let's see what that's done to the figures so far.

0:33:590:34:02

Jonty started his selling well.

0:34:040:34:06

He's only sold twice, but has brought in a profit of £122.90.

0:34:060:34:11

James, on the other hand, is flying high.

0:34:110:34:15

Three lots down

0:34:150:34:16

and he's sitting on a very comfortable profit of £218.90.

0:34:160:34:21

So, Jonty needs to pull his finger out.

0:34:210:34:24

He makes his way to Wallingford with his cheapest item,

0:34:240:34:27

the silver pincushion in the shape of a jockey's cap.

0:34:270:34:30

He drops in to see Yvonne in her sewing shop.

0:34:300:34:34

-Hello there!

-Yvonne, how are you doing?

0:34:350:34:37

-I'm very well.

-Great to see you.

0:34:370:34:39

Now, I brought my little pincushion to show you.

0:34:390:34:41

Yes, you said you were coming along with something.

0:34:410:34:43

Would you like to have a look at that? That's silver

0:34:430:34:45

and it's in the shape of a jockey's hat. Do you like it?

0:34:450:34:48

-It is gorgeous.

-Yes, it is great.

0:34:480:34:51

During the late 19th century,

0:34:510:34:54

there was a fashion to produce silver pincushions.

0:34:540:34:57

Often, they were in the shape of animals, for instance,

0:34:570:35:00

and they're very collectible.

0:35:000:35:01

Some can easily reach sort of top hundreds.

0:35:010:35:05

And what you don't know is what the real draw about this is for me...

0:35:050:35:09

Is that my grandfather used to ride horses in Ireland point to point.

0:35:090:35:14

No! Well, I want £80 for it.

0:35:140:35:17

-How about if we sort of... 70.

-70?

0:35:170:35:21

-Yeah.

-Go on, then.

-Done.

-Let's go for it.

0:35:210:35:24

The pincushion makes a profit of £28.70.

0:35:240:35:28

Not massive, but every little helps

0:35:280:35:30

particularly as Bingo starts to have some issues.

0:35:300:35:33

He hits turbulence with his Red Arrows plate.

0:35:330:35:35

A man in Berkshire pays about half what James paid himself,

0:35:350:35:39

so it lands with a bump,

0:35:390:35:41

a loss of £38.70.

0:35:410:35:44

And things don't get any better with the Beswick donkey

0:35:450:35:48

and Copenhagen dog.

0:35:480:35:50

A lady in Oxfordshire gives him £50,

0:35:500:35:52

which chalks up another loss,

0:35:520:35:54

although this time it's only £3.10.

0:35:540:35:58

So, this is Jonty's chance to pull it back.

0:35:580:36:01

He's brought his map to a classic car showroom in Kensington

0:36:010:36:03

in London to meet the owner Graeme.

0:36:030:36:06

It's in its original box, so I'm going to unravel it to him

0:36:070:36:10

to see whether this is the kind of object

0:36:100:36:12

that he would want to sell along with these beautiful cars.

0:36:120:36:15

The map owes him nearly £190.

0:36:150:36:18

Will it put him streets ahead of Bingo?

0:36:180:36:22

Well, here's my map. The Auto-Mapic.

0:36:220:36:25

-Nice name.

-It's a road map of southern England and the Midlands.

0:36:250:36:30

So, you've actually got... It's 14 different maps in total.

0:36:300:36:34

Also, what I find quite interesting

0:36:340:36:35

is that I think this is glove box size.

0:36:350:36:38

Yeah, for cars of that period whether it had a reasonable size...

0:36:380:36:41

-Yes, everyone had a glove box.

-I do think it's a brilliant piece.

0:36:410:36:43

I like the way it looks.

0:36:430:36:45

I like the tactile sense of the fact it's all within this plastic case.

0:36:450:36:49

Probably, the most...

0:36:490:36:51

interesting part is probably sort of London and the surrounding area

0:36:510:36:55

because you can probably date it much more readily

0:36:550:36:57

if we just sort of skip up to London.

0:36:570:37:00

Here. And you can see very clearly that there's the North Circular.

0:37:000:37:04

-The beginnings of.

-But of course, there's no M25.

-No, no.

0:37:040:37:08

And if you look further west, there's no M4.

0:37:080:37:11

You've just got the Bath Road, the A4.

0:37:110:37:13

Yeah, and there's no beginning of the M1 either,

0:37:130:37:15

so we can date it as pre-1960...

0:37:150:37:18

Well, price-wise, I'm looking for £280 for it.

0:37:180:37:22

-What?

-£280.

0:37:220:37:24

-I thought that's what you said.

-THEY LAUGH

0:37:240:37:26

I was going to give you £200

0:37:270:37:30

when I had seen the photographs,

0:37:300:37:32

but having actually seen it now

0:37:320:37:34

and the fact it's got a box, which I didn't notice in the photographs,

0:37:340:37:38

but was probably there and it's mint,

0:37:380:37:40

I would give you 225.

0:37:400:37:42

Could you do another 25? 250?

0:37:440:37:47

230.

0:37:470:37:48

-240.

-Done.

0:37:480:37:50

A gentlemanly haggle and the map navigates a profit of £51.20.

0:37:500:37:55

Well, that's another great sale, but time to move on.

0:37:570:38:02

Left here, Graeme.

0:38:020:38:03

Jonty soon finds his way to another sale.

0:38:030:38:06

His Scottish books are bought by a Scottish friend

0:38:060:38:08

who pays £120, bringing in another decent profit £49.20.

0:38:080:38:14

Now, remember the silk kimono that came with James's tapestry panel?

0:38:140:38:18

Well, Bingo has finally got round to trying it on.

0:38:180:38:21

Ooh, and he looks lovely.

0:38:210:38:23

So, will this help sell it to fashion student Millie?

0:38:230:38:27

-Hello, Millie.

-Hello.

0:38:270:38:29

Don't be alarmed by my attire. It is slightly worrying, isn't it?

0:38:290:38:32

I think it suits you. Yeah.

0:38:320:38:34

A middle-aged gentleman in a sort of kimono.

0:38:340:38:36

This is what I wanted to show you. Come on, you fashion student.

0:38:360:38:39

Beautiful, isn't it? It's really beautiful.

0:38:390:38:42

Is it something that you might wear to possibly a fancy dress?

0:38:420:38:45

Not fancy dress. I think it's kind of...

0:38:450:38:48

It's more like a dressing down.

0:38:480:38:49

-Something you can just chuck on in the summer...

-Yeah.

0:38:490:38:52

..and sit in the garden with a coffee or something.

0:38:520:38:54

-Would you buy this for a fiver?

-Yes.

0:38:540:38:56

Would you have it for a fiver? It's now yours.

0:38:560:38:58

I will definitely have that for a fiver.

0:38:580:39:01

And I'm going to take it off before I get arrested.

0:39:010:39:03

Well, Millie clearly doesn't think it's a crime of fashion.

0:39:030:39:06

So, what about the tapestry panel?

0:39:060:39:08

He takes that to an antiques shop in Bexhill to meet the owner Andy.

0:39:080:39:12

But will the rips in the panel be a problem?

0:39:120:39:16

Have a look at that.

0:39:160:39:17

-What, half a pole screen, James?

-Half a pole screen.

0:39:170:39:20

Somebody's obviously whipped the stand for a...

0:39:200:39:22

What happened there? A little bit damaged as well, unfortunately.

0:39:220:39:25

What I love about these is I'd love something...

0:39:250:39:27

I like the complete contemporary package.

0:39:270:39:29

I like it when you've got a panel in its original frame.

0:39:290:39:33

And it's a really sweet frame, isn't it?

0:39:330:39:35

Yeah, it's nicely carved, isn't it?

0:39:350:39:37

-This is the cornucopia, so symbol of plenty.

-Yeah.

0:39:370:39:40

And I want to try to get 20 quid for it.

0:39:410:39:43

It's a tenner for the frame really, James, isn't it?

0:39:430:39:45

-How about 15, Andy?

-No, I need 10 on this, James, I think.

-Really?

0:39:450:39:48

Yeah, it's... Otherwise I'll pass it on by, let someone else have a go.

0:39:480:39:51

-Really?

-Yeah, it's a tenner's worth.

0:39:510:39:53

Tenner's worth. God, you are a hard man, Andy, aren't you?

0:39:530:39:57

-Tenner's worth?

-Yeah, go on, then.

0:39:570:40:00

-OK. You can have it.

-OK. Thank you, James.

0:40:000:40:02

So, add that to the fiver he got for the kimono

0:40:020:40:05

and James's profit is just £3.20.

0:40:050:40:07

Whilst he's there, Andy also buys the pair of door pushes.

0:40:070:40:12

-OK, 45?

-Go on, then.

-Well done. Thank you.

0:40:120:40:14

And that rings in a profit of £9.60.

0:40:140:40:19

So, the second half of this selling spree

0:40:190:40:21

hasn't really gone James's way.

0:40:210:40:23

Could Jonty cook up a win with his last item?

0:40:230:40:26

The wedding cake stand cost The Hitman nearly £77

0:40:260:40:29

and he's staying local, taking it to show Rob

0:40:290:40:33

who manages a hotel in Shillingford that caters for weddings.

0:40:330:40:37

This is a cake stand.

0:40:370:40:38

Because of its wear, I suppose,

0:40:380:40:41

it has to be probably just before the war this was made.

0:40:410:40:44

And it's also sort of plated silver we've got here.

0:40:440:40:48

It comes with a knife as well attached.

0:40:480:40:52

You can see it's definitely got some age to it.

0:40:520:40:54

Yes, genuinely nice piece. Nice to see it in its original box.

0:40:540:40:57

Now, price-wise, I'm looking for £140.

0:40:570:41:00

-I'm looking more in the region of paying around £100.

-100 quid?

0:41:000:41:04

Well, if we do a bit more than that, I'll be happy. What about 110?

0:41:040:41:07

-Yeah, OK.

-Do that?

-110.

-I'm happy with that. 110.

-110.

0:41:090:41:12

-It's all yours, sir.

-Thank you very much.

0:41:120:41:14

Excellent work. Jonty cuts a deal and gets a profit of £33.30.

0:41:140:41:19

Well, James, that's how to do it. Another sale, another profit.

0:41:190:41:23

It's a piece of cake.

0:41:230:41:25

So, there we have it. Everything has been sold.

0:41:250:41:28

We'll find out our winner in just a moment.

0:41:280:41:30

First let's remind ourselves of what they spent in Wareham.

0:41:300:41:33

Both our boys arrived at auction with £1,000 of their own money.

0:41:350:41:39

Jonty had a hard time but eventually left with six lots,

0:41:390:41:43

spending nearly £785.

0:41:430:41:46

James however spent much more.

0:41:460:41:49

He bought seven times and forked out over £938.

0:41:490:41:53

But, now it's all about the profits.

0:41:530:41:56

All of the money that Jonty and James have made

0:41:560:41:58

from today's challenge will go to charities of their choice.

0:41:580:42:01

And it's now time to reveal who is today's

0:42:010:42:04

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Champion.

0:42:040:42:08

-Jonty.

-James. Now, that auction sale, it was tough!

0:42:080:42:11

It was tough. It's very hard to buy well with that premium.

0:42:110:42:15

You name it, it's all there, isn't it?

0:42:150:42:16

I got really excited at the beginning of the day. Walked into the room.

0:42:160:42:19

-I thought there was so much to buy...

-Yeah.

0:42:190:42:21

..but when the auction sale started,

0:42:210:42:23

-it was just more and more difficult to buy.

-It was.

0:42:230:42:26

-Should we see how we've done?

-Should we see? I'm interested!

-Let's go.

0:42:260:42:30

285...

0:42:300:42:31

-189!

-Oh!

0:42:310:42:33

There should be a nought after that one.

0:42:330:42:35

HE LAUGHS Oh, dear! Yeah.

0:42:350:42:38

-Well done, well done.

-Well, one for me.

-Yep. Champagne.

0:42:380:42:42

Bit of a surprise there for James, it seems.

0:42:430:42:45

He clearly thought the Chinese group had carved out a win,

0:42:450:42:48

but Jonty's solid consistency wins through.

0:42:480:42:51

How did slip away? My Chinese water buffalo make me a good profit.

0:42:520:42:57

And I did all right on the rest, but Jonty has it.

0:42:570:43:01

Wow! Got some great sales there. I had needed an interpreter for one.

0:43:010:43:06

Road map, what fun that was.

0:43:060:43:08

Well, I won this one James. Maybe, you're going to get me next time.

0:43:080:43:12

Hm. Maybe he will. Our boys do battle again tomorrow

0:43:120:43:16

when they go rummaging around at an antiques fair in Leicestershire.

0:43:160:43:19

HE BLOWS HORN

0:43:200:43:23

Jonty Hearnden and James Braxton do battle at an auction in Dorset. James spends over half his £1,000 budget on one item, while Jonty struggles to buy anything at all. Once they've sold all their items, who will come out on top?
