This bargain hunting lark just looks like a piece of cake, doesn't it?

0:00:030:00:07

But, actually, there's far more to it than meets the eye.

0:00:070:00:11

Our teams are going to need loads of skill, they're going to need cunning,

0:00:110:00:15

and above all, they're going to need speed.

0:00:150:00:18

Yeah.

0:00:180:00:20

Well, come on then. What are you doing back there?

0:00:200:00:23

Let's go bargain hunting.

0:00:230:00:25

Hello. And a very warm welcome to you all.

0:00:570:01:00

I'm at the East of England showground in Peterborough

0:01:000:01:03

and can't wait to show you what's in store.

0:01:030:01:05

Just take a squiz at this.

0:01:050:01:08

The Reds can't decide.

0:01:100:01:12

25% off everything on that table.

0:01:120:01:15

-Jen, we've got some money to spend.

-We have.

-We have.

0:01:150:01:18

The Blues can't disagree.

0:01:180:01:21

-You want to go for it?

-Yeah.

-You like that?

0:01:210:01:23

-Definitely.

-Brilliant. We'll go with that.

0:01:230:01:25

And I can't move for dogs. Don't you think he's sweet?

0:01:250:01:29

Hang on a sec, though.

0:01:320:01:34

We need to meet the teams. Welcome, girls.

0:01:340:01:37

Now we've got good friends, Jennifer and Lydia, for the Reds.

0:01:370:01:40

And good friends, Christie and Abbey, for the Blues.

0:01:400:01:44

Now, you two became friends in the swinging '60s. Is that right?

0:01:440:01:48

-Yes. We did.

-And you're both very busy, aren't you?

0:01:480:01:50

-Yes.

-OK. Tell us what you get up to then, Jennifer.

0:01:500:01:53

Golf and tennis and bridge and...

0:01:530:01:56

-Lunch?

-..eating. Eating.

0:01:560:01:58

Lots of eating.

0:01:580:02:01

Mostly outdoor sports, really.

0:02:010:02:03

So you want to not only exercise your brains but also...

0:02:030:02:07

Our bodies.

0:02:070:02:08

I thought you were going to say that.

0:02:080:02:11

-Lovely. Now, Lydia, you're a hairdresser.

-Yes.

0:02:110:02:14

-And did hairdressing bring you to Britain?

-Yes. It did.

0:02:140:02:17

-Where did you come from?

-Austria.

0:02:170:02:19

-And you came to learn English.

-Yes, I did.

0:02:190:02:22

You came over to learn your English. Then what happened?

0:02:220:02:25

I came to learn to go back home again, home Austria, and then I met my husband and stayed.

0:02:250:02:30

So how confident are you two girls about your performance today?

0:02:300:02:34

-Very confident.

-Are you?

-Yes.

0:02:340:02:36

Well, we'll do all we can to assist you in that aim.

0:02:360:02:40

What lovely girls. Now, over to the Blues.

0:02:400:02:43

-You're great friends. Yes?

-Yes.

-From university.

0:02:430:02:46

When you've finished at university, you're keen to travel.

0:02:460:02:48

Yeah. Well, I think so. I don't really know exactly what I want to do, but I'd like to go to China.

0:02:480:02:54

-To do what?

-Maybe to like care for animals or teach English.

0:02:540:02:56

Is there any particular animal that you'd like to look after in China?

0:02:560:03:00

Pandas are the obvious one for China, because they're endangered.

0:03:000:03:04

-Lucky old panda, I say.

-That's right.

-Now, Abbey, golf is your big thing, right?

0:03:040:03:09

I'd like to pretend it is, although I did have lessons for two years

0:03:090:03:12

and never played a round of golf. I wasn't confident enough.

0:03:120:03:15

-What, never the whole 18 holes?

-No.

0:03:150:03:18

How are you on the subject of antiques and collectables?

0:03:180:03:20

Are you going to beat these Reds?

0:03:200:03:22

We both do history and I think because we read it so much in books,

0:03:220:03:25

the reason why we wanted to come on Bargain Hunt was to see it in objects as well.

0:03:250:03:29

And there is no better way of telling the historical story,

0:03:290:03:32

quite frankly, than grabbing a lump of something, that's really a bit of living history.

0:03:320:03:37

Anyway, now the lovely dosh moment.

0:03:370:03:39

£300 apiece. £300. There you go. £300.

0:03:390:03:41

You know the rules. Your experts await. And off you go.

0:03:410:03:45

And very good luck. Don't forget, girls, we want a nice clean fight.

0:03:450:03:49

Talking tactics with the Red team is shrewd shopper David Barby.

0:03:530:03:58

And the Blue team are being warmed up by Mr Motivator himself,

0:03:580:04:02

Thomas Plant.

0:04:020:04:04

And the rules are each team gets £300 and 60 minutes to shop for three items.

0:04:050:04:10

And we're going to be watching the clock.

0:04:100:04:13

So, let's get cracking, eh.

0:04:130:04:14

Look, here we are. Here's the entrance.

0:04:180:04:20

It looks crowded out. Keep close.

0:04:200:04:22

-Scan the stalls as you go along but don't look at every single thing.

-All right.

0:04:220:04:26

Sound advice, David.

0:04:260:04:28

-Oh, that's nice. Look how intricate that is. Is that ivory?

-It is ivory.

0:04:300:04:34

How much is the ivory brooch?

0:04:340:04:36

The very best is 130.

0:04:360:04:38

-130. Did you want to think about it? We've just started shopping.

-Yeah. We will have a think about it.

0:04:380:04:43

We don't want to buy something too expensive at the start.

0:04:430:04:46

-We'll leave it.

-That's a very good plan.

0:04:460:04:48

Here on this still is 18th century porcelain.

0:04:500:04:54

-Yes.

-And you know about that, don't you?

0:04:540:04:56

Come and have a look. Whether in fact it interests you or not,

0:04:560:04:59

you see, you're talking in terms of £250.

0:04:590:05:02

It's really more than we would possibly want to spend.

0:05:020:05:05

-Yes.

-Yes. Yes. It is indeed. It is indeed. Some very nice pieces.

0:05:050:05:09

It's a bit expensive though, isn't it?

0:05:090:05:11

-Do you think?

-I don't know.

0:05:110:05:13

-How much is it?

-195.

0:05:130:05:15

Well, I don't think you'll get your money on that somehow.

0:05:150:05:18

I don't think so. What do I like?

0:05:180:05:22

Lydia, Winston Churchill.

0:05:220:05:23

-I don't know.

-How much is it?

0:05:230:05:26

-Well, it's a bit expensive. £25.

-It's not expensive for what it is.

0:05:260:05:29

But you've got to think in terms of if it goes up for auction...

0:05:290:05:33

-I just like his face.

-..whether we're going to make a profit or not.

0:05:330:05:36

This is going to be a battle, David.

0:05:360:05:38

These toys, toys have such a nostalgia with people.

0:05:400:05:44

-Definitely.

-People love them.

-They're collectables.

0:05:440:05:47

It's a huge collecting area.

0:05:470:05:49

-Wow. Look at that.

-What do you like about that?

0:05:490:05:51

When we were younger there was like the huge plastic

0:05:510:05:55

little kitchen thing, so it's quite nice to see that they had that toy then.

0:05:550:05:58

It's tinplate. And you've got these nice printed panels on here.

0:05:580:06:02

-These look like plastic handles.

-It's in good condition.

-It is in good condition.

0:06:020:06:06

-They're lovely, aren't they?

-Yeah. Really good.

-Oh, there we are.

0:06:060:06:09

-It's a Swiss make, Sigg of Switzerland.

-You can image them melting the chocolate in the pans.

0:06:090:06:14

Do you think things like that would sell?

0:06:140:06:16

Absolutely. You've got a big paella dish. Yeah.

0:06:160:06:19

I think it's a good, novelty, interesting item, isn't it? A toy point of view.

0:06:190:06:23

-I just think I would prefer to see at least £10 off that.

-Yeah.

0:06:230:06:26

Maybe a little bit more. Do you want me to go and have a chat?

0:06:260:06:29

-Yes.

-Or do you want to go and do it?

0:06:290:06:32

-What do you want to do, girls?

-You can do it.

-Yeah.

0:06:320:06:34

-Yeah.

-You do the first one and then we'll...

-Chickens.

0:06:340:06:38

Hello. What's your very best on that?

0:06:380:06:41

-35.

-Brilliant. So, guys, £35. What do you think?

0:06:410:06:44

-That's really good.

-You want to go for it?

-Yeah.

0:06:440:06:46

-You like that?

-Definitely.

-Brilliant. We'll go with that.

0:06:460:06:49

-That's really good.

-It's a novelty item.

0:06:490:06:51

-Even though we said we weren't going to go for that, but I like it.

-I do.

0:06:510:06:54

So, onwards and upwards. We've got our first item.

0:06:540:06:57

-Yeah.

-Good.

-Let's find another two.

0:06:570:06:59

-Yes. Let's go.

-Come on.

0:06:590:07:01

Cor, you're cooking with gas, Blues.

0:07:010:07:04

Now that, actually, I like it.

0:07:040:07:08

-Oh, good.

-I do.

-Let's have a look.

-I like that.

0:07:080:07:10

-I wonder if we can get...

-We'll have to ask.

0:07:100:07:12

-Like the shape of it?

-Yes. I like that.

0:07:120:07:15

It's very... the simplicity of it.

0:07:150:07:17

-Would I pay £45 for it?

-No. We wouldn't. We wouldn't.

0:07:170:07:21

The gentleman may negotiate a price.

0:07:210:07:23

-What's the best on the spoon, sir?

-38.

0:07:230:07:26

Can't do quite 38.

0:07:260:07:28

Have to do a bit better than that.

0:07:280:07:31

We will.

0:07:310:07:32

I know we have to buy things.

0:07:320:07:35

Yes. That is the point of the game, Lydia.

0:07:350:07:37

OK. Can I just check with my boss?

0:07:370:07:41

-My boss?

-What do you think?

0:07:410:07:43

-How much is it?

-32.

-Would he come down to 30 on it?

0:07:430:07:47

-Yeah. We'd have it for 30.

-Go on. I'll do 30 then.

0:07:470:07:50

-We'll do 30.

-Right.

0:07:500:07:52

This is quite a nice little spoon.

0:07:520:07:54

When I look at this, I think of the arts and crafts movement although it was made round about 1946.

0:07:540:08:00

It's a two to one thing here.

0:08:000:08:02

-You don't like it, obviously.

-I don't dislike it, but I just feel

0:08:020:08:05

would I pay £30 for something of that nature or even more?

0:08:050:08:09

-It is solid silver.

-Do you think 30 is OK?

0:08:090:08:11

I think £30 is a reasonable figure.

0:08:110:08:13

-And do you think it'll make a profit?

-It is handmade.

0:08:130:08:18

-Yes.

-So I've been told, but I liked the look of it straightaway.

0:08:180:08:22

-So do I. Yes.

-Well, there we are. We've made our first purchase and I do think we ought to get on.

0:08:220:08:26

You tell them, Lydia.

0:08:260:08:28

The next choice will be yours, Jennifer.

0:08:280:08:31

SHE LAUGHS

0:08:310:08:33

We might be waiting a long time for that then.

0:08:330:08:37

-That is nice, isn't it?

-Yeah. I mean, it's £6.

0:08:380:08:41

I think you want to look for something... You've got a bit more money than £6 to spend.

0:08:410:08:45

What about that jug up there?

0:08:450:08:47

-This one?

-Yeah. Do you like that?

-Yeah. I like the blue inside.

0:08:470:08:51

Yeah. Look at the base.

0:08:510:08:53

-What does it say?

-"Clarice Cliff."

0:08:530:08:55

Your grandma recommended that, didn't she?

0:08:550:08:58

My grandma told me to get Clarice Cliff.

0:08:580:09:00

-Oh, right.

-Or Troika.

-Naturally, they're two good subjects.

0:09:000:09:03

I knew it was Clarice, as soon as I saw it, because of this handle here.

0:09:030:09:06

It's a sort of later Clarice Cliff design.

0:09:060:09:09

-Would it be a water jug?

-Yeah. Water jug or lemonade, certainly.

0:09:090:09:12

You can even put flowers in it if you wanted. It is pretty.

0:09:120:09:15

Do what you want, really. Absolutely.

0:09:150:09:16

It would be quite nice. I love the colours.

0:09:160:09:19

-The handle's really nice.

-It's quite modern looking.

0:09:190:09:21

-Yeah.

-How old is it then?

-60 years?

-I don't know any Clarice.

0:09:210:09:25

Think a bit earlier. A bit earlier.

0:09:250:09:28

-80 years?

-Absolutely. It's about 1930s. What do you think about that price there?

0:09:280:09:32

I think we could knock it down a bit. Maybe to like 70 or something.

0:09:320:09:36

I'd go for 65.

0:09:360:09:37

Why don't you go, do you want to go and have a chat?

0:09:370:09:39

Why don't you go and bargain this time?

0:09:390:09:42

Go and see her and Christie and I will have a look round and see what else is here? Is that all right?

0:09:420:09:46

Yes. Perfect. Wish me luck.

0:09:460:09:48

-Go and have a chat. Go on.

-Good luck.

0:09:480:09:50

So while Abbey goes walkies, come and have a look at this.

0:09:500:09:53

Have you noticed that there's not the most phenomenal number of dogs at these antique fairs?

0:09:550:10:02

Well, it's hardly surprising then that actually, dog collectables are incredibly collectable.

0:10:020:10:08

So what do you think about this little joker?

0:10:080:10:11

What sort of breed is it? The clue is about its body, look.

0:10:110:10:14

It's got this vaguely squashed-in face and a curly type of tail.

0:10:140:10:19

And I reckon it's a pug dog.

0:10:190:10:21

This thing was made of cast bronze between 1780 and 1820,

0:10:210:10:26

so it's really got some age.

0:10:260:10:28

This gold chain is supposed to be attached to that collar,

0:10:280:10:32

which in turn is attached to this slab of marble,

0:10:320:10:36

and I really like this slab of marble, because it's Siena marble

0:10:360:10:40

and that's been applied onto some plain white Carrara marble.

0:10:400:10:44

And these two slabs of marble, one on top of the other, I think are incredibly smart.

0:10:440:10:49

And it looks a bit, to me, like William Hogarth's Trump.

0:10:490:10:54

If you trot down to the Tate, there's a splendid portrait

0:10:540:10:57

of William Hogarth with his dog, Trump,

0:10:570:11:00

which you see in lots of portraits of the man.

0:11:000:11:03

The other famous person that owned one of these was the Emperor Li Po.

0:11:030:11:08

He so loved his pug dogs that he gave them the status of his wives.

0:11:080:11:14

Of course, the British, when they sacked Peking in 1860,

0:11:140:11:18

they found loads of pug dogs in the Imperial palace and they imported them en masse back to Britain.

0:11:180:11:25

So, you see, there's a lot that's very special about pugs,

0:11:250:11:29

which I reckon will make this thing highly desirable

0:11:290:11:32

were it to be resold.

0:11:320:11:34

What's it worth? Well, you could buy it in a sale like this for £60.

0:11:340:11:38

Were you to sell it to a pug fanatic though,

0:11:380:11:41

I reckon you'd get a cool 400.

0:11:410:11:45

Woof woof.

0:11:450:11:47

Abbey, how did you get on with the bargaining?

0:11:500:11:53

Prefer one with a shade on top.

0:11:530:11:54

But you always choose your own shade though, don't you?

0:11:540:11:57

-Yeah, I suppose.

-You always do your own shade.

0:11:570:11:59

Guys, I think I've got good news.

0:11:590:12:00

-Oh, yeah. What is it?

-65.

0:12:000:12:02

-That is good.

-Let's put this down.

0:12:020:12:05

-Looking at things. Let's have a look at that.

-I think it's worth it.

0:12:050:12:08

-I definitely do. I really like it.

-Do you want to go for it?

0:12:080:12:11

-Yep.

-Well done. I think we should get it.

-We'll dedicate that one to your grandma.

0:12:110:12:14

-Definitely.

-Brilliant.

0:12:140:12:16

Swift work. Two down, one to go.

0:12:160:12:18

You'd better start making some quick decisions, Jen and Lydia, if you want to catch the Blue team up.

0:12:180:12:23

Could I just interrupt? Are you interested in Art Deco?

0:12:250:12:28

-Am I? Yes.

-I am.

-Any interest in ceramics?

0:12:280:12:31

-Yes.

-OK. Can we walk quickly?

-Yes.

-OK. Right. Follow me.

0:12:310:12:35

Barby's getting all masterful.

0:12:350:12:39

-So you've got one other thing to buy. Is that right?

-Yep. We have.

0:12:400:12:44

And are they good?

0:12:440:12:45

They're receptive. They're interested.

0:12:450:12:47

-They're young, bright.

-They're young, bright.

0:12:470:12:50

-Like you and me.

-Absolutely.

0:12:500:12:51

-Mirror image really, I'd say. Anyway, good luck.

-Thank you.

0:12:510:12:54

-Right. What do you think?

-What, the plates?

0:13:020:13:04

They're actually stands for table.

0:13:040:13:06

-If you had a hot terrine, you'd place it on the top so you wouldn't harm the table.

-Yes.

0:13:060:13:10

But they're bold colours, typical of the 1920s.

0:13:100:13:13

They look nice. I like them.

0:13:130:13:15

That's good. Good.

0:13:150:13:16

A bit expensive, aren't they? Are they 44 or is it my eyesight?

0:13:160:13:20

They are 44. They're £22 each. Very good mark there. James Kent.

0:13:200:13:24

So many factories producing it, you look at this and think of Clarice Cliff.

0:13:240:13:27

-Do I?

-Jennifer, where have you been the last 40 years?

0:13:270:13:30

Where have I been? Clarice Cliff. Yes.

0:13:300:13:33

And it's that sort of palate, that sort of decoration, stylised flowers. So I think it's quite good.

0:13:330:13:38

I had a quick word with the dealer and he's prepared to take £30 for the two.

0:13:380:13:43

Would you say that was good?

0:13:430:13:45

-It's £15 each.

-Yes.

0:13:450:13:46

Can we do a bit more off with the dealer? Can we ask a bit more?

0:13:460:13:50

He's come down 44 to 30.

0:13:500:13:52

-All right then.

-What do you think?

-Yeah. I think they're nice.

0:13:520:13:55

-Yes.

-Hold one, Jennifer.

0:13:550:13:57

Hold the other one, Lydia.

0:13:570:13:59

Because I think they're quite attractive. I like these.

0:13:590:14:03

-Yes. We'll have those.

-Yes.

0:14:030:14:06

-My prayer's been answered.

-Hallelujah.

0:14:060:14:09

Can we have a look at something just round the corner?

0:14:090:14:11

-Yes. Of course.

-Right.

-Right. Shall we settle on these?

-Yes.

0:14:110:14:14

I'm so delighted.

0:14:140:14:16

You know you guys are thinking about, you know, something useful.

0:14:210:14:25

-Yeah.

-I mean, why don't we look at something like a walking stick?

0:14:250:14:28

-Yeah.

-That is useful.

0:14:280:14:30

-I know it's not very feminine at all.

-We don't mind about that.

0:14:300:14:34

But do people buy walking sticks at auctions?

0:14:340:14:36

-Huge collectorship appeal for them.

-Really?

0:14:360:14:39

The plain ones, people aren't so excited about.

0:14:390:14:41

But it's the white metal ones they quite like.

0:14:410:14:43

-I quite like that one.

-This here.

-Who's that man?

0:14:430:14:47

Well, you are historians, aren't you?

0:14:470:14:50

So what happened in 1848?

0:14:500:14:52

-Unification.

-Yeah. And who was sort of in charge of Germany?

0:14:520:14:56

-Bismarck?

-Yeah, Bismarck, but who was their sort of king?

0:14:560:15:00

I'm sorry. I'm an English historian.

0:15:000:15:03

-Kaiser Bell.

-Wilhelm.

0:15:030:15:05

Yeah. Yeah. So, Kaiser Wilhelm.

0:15:050:15:07

-And then this is obviously...

-Oh, that one.

0:15:070:15:10

Kaiser Bell being under the thumb.

0:15:100:15:12

-Oooh!

-That's really clever.

-You like that.

-I like that.

0:15:120:15:15

That's quite witty!

0:15:150:15:17

-I do.

-It's quite funny, isn't it?

0:15:170:15:18

Yeah. It's in good condition as well.

0:15:180:15:20

It is. Quite a heavy gauge of white metal.

0:15:200:15:23

It is not marked anywhere if it's silver or not. It's good fun though, isn't it?

0:15:230:15:27

-Yeah.

-I do like that it's a bit of history as well.

0:15:270:15:29

-Me, too.

-It's not just old. It's got history behind it.

0:15:290:15:32

Shall I ask how much it is? It could be quite expensive.

0:15:320:15:34

-Yeah, ask how much it is. Check it out.

-Shall I?

0:15:340:15:37

-Yeah.

-Do it.

-Right. What do you think we would get it at?

0:15:370:15:40

I don't know how much it would be.

0:15:400:15:43

Maybe...180.

0:15:430:15:45

-I'll do 140 and that is rock bottom.

-OK. So what do you think?

0:15:450:15:49

£140 I've got it down from.

0:15:490:15:50

It was 180. And I've got it to 140.

0:15:500:15:53

We've spent 100, haven't we?

0:15:530:15:55

-So we'll have 60 left.

-60 for me.

-Yeah. I like it.

0:15:550:15:58

-I like it.

-I like the joke behind it.

-Me, too.

0:15:580:16:00

-You want to go for it?

-Definitely.

-Yeah, I think so.

0:16:000:16:02

Well, that's brilliant. Third item. 45 minute shop.

0:16:020:16:06

-That's really good.

-15 minutes left for a cup of tea.

0:16:060:16:08

Yep. Definitely. Or two.

0:16:080:16:10

Let's go and have that cup of tea then. Come on.

0:16:100:16:12

-Thank you.

-Easy peasy.

0:16:120:16:14

Blues done. Hurry up, Reds.

0:16:140:16:16

Right, Jennifer. It's your buy now.

0:16:160:16:18

It is my buy.

0:16:180:16:20

I want something bigger for my money.

0:16:200:16:22

-Small is beautiful.

-Is it?

-So I'm told.

0:16:220:16:24

Let's have a quick wander down here.

0:16:240:16:26

Please do not pick up every little thing.

0:16:260:16:28

-No. No. No. No.

-Right.

0:16:280:16:30

25% off everything on that table.

0:16:320:16:34

Jen, we've got some money to spend.

0:16:340:16:36

-We have.

-We have.

-Nude ladies always sell quite well, don't they?

0:16:360:16:40

Do what, nude ladies?

0:16:400:16:42

We've got 15 minutes to spare.

0:16:420:16:44

Have you seen anything, Jennifer? It's your choice.

0:16:440:16:47

I might have seen something on this stall round here.

0:16:470:16:49

-OK. Lead on MacDuff.

-Right.

0:16:490:16:51

I'm quite happy with either of those items. I quite like that one really.

0:16:510:16:55

-That's a bit small.

-It's small? It's huge.

0:16:550:16:58

-It's small for our purposes but it does look attractive.

-It does look attractive.

0:16:580:17:02

-It reminds me of Victoriana, whereas, the one up there reminds me of the 1950s.

-Does it?

0:17:020:17:07

Yeah. Do you not think so?

0:17:070:17:08

-1950s?

-I don't mind either. I like them both.

-It's Bohemian glass.

0:17:080:17:12

And they are wonderful glass manufacturers.

0:17:120:17:14

They were in the 19th century and before.

0:17:140:17:16

But I think it was made yesterday.

0:17:160:17:17

-Do you?

-Yes. But that doesn't matter. It's got quality.

0:17:170:17:20

1950s, all the rage.

0:17:200:17:22

Flat furniture, G-Plan. It's all coming back,

0:17:220:17:25

and this is very much capturing that particular style.

0:17:250:17:28

I like it. Did you want to have a word with the gentleman?

0:17:280:17:31

I will. What do you think?

0:17:310:17:33

I'll do it for 70. >

0:17:330:17:34

-Not 65?

-I'll meet you halfway.

0:17:340:17:37

-I'll go 68.

-I'll see what he says.

0:17:370:17:39

He'll do it for 68 but that wouldn't make us much, would it?

0:17:390:17:43

No-one would go to 68 for that, would they?

0:17:430:17:45

The point is we're running out of time.

0:17:450:17:47

-Yes.

-I want to hold it.

-Go on then. It's new, isn't it?

-Course it's new.

0:17:470:17:50

-Yeah.

-And it's not that heavy if you're considering lead crystal.

0:17:500:17:54

What I do like about it is that it's handcrafted and this has been spun whilst it's still a molten shape

0:17:540:18:01

and then it's been pulled in at its corners there whilst it's still molten.

0:18:010:18:05

It's what we term as case glass. So you can see the clear glass there.

0:18:050:18:09

-And then you've got the dark glass with the gold inclusions encased within the clear.

-What do you think?

0:18:090:18:16

-Do you want to have another quick glance or do you want to decide on that?

-No. I'll be going on forever.

0:18:160:18:21

But I don't know if it would make a profit at 68.

0:18:210:18:23

-Well, it's your choice.

-I know.

0:18:230:18:26

-It's the only thing that's brought us a sort of positive reaction.

-It is.

-Isn't it?

-Yes.

0:18:260:18:30

-And you can see, when it sells, that I have no taste.

-Oh, it'll sell.

0:18:300:18:34

It'll sell. Don't worry about that.

0:18:340:18:35

Go and clinch the deal and we'll go and have a cup of tea.

0:18:350:18:38

More tea. Mine's black. No sugar.

0:18:380:18:41

Hello. What's that, you say?

0:18:430:18:46

-Time's up.

-Time's up.

0:18:460:18:48

Cor, doesn't time fly when you're enjoying yourself?

0:18:480:18:53

The hour might be over, but our experts still have to find a bonus buy with the leftover lolly.

0:18:540:19:00

The team can take it or leave it at auction,

0:19:000:19:03

but it could make the difference between victory and defeat.

0:19:030:19:07

But that's all for later. Right now, though, let's remind everybody what the Reds are pinning their hopes on.

0:19:090:19:16

The Reds ladled out £30 for a silver arts and crafts spoon.

0:19:160:19:23

They spent the same amount on David's Art Deco plate stands.

0:19:230:19:27

And Jennifer was taken by the flamboyant glass vase.

0:19:300:19:34

-I'm so pleased that's over and done with now.

-What a relief.

0:19:360:19:39

-What a relief.

-Absolutely.

0:19:390:19:41

I think everybody's relieved, quite frankly. We're all relieved.

0:19:410:19:44

You have not agreed on one single little thing, have you?

0:19:440:19:48

-Not really.

-No. What do you mean, not really?

0:19:480:19:49

-Not really. Well, we semi-agreed...

-Semi-agreed.

0:19:490:19:52

..that my taste was rubbish.

0:19:520:19:55

Well, of course, the proof with all this,

0:19:550:19:57

which is what so exciting on Bargain Hunt, is in the pudding.

0:19:570:20:00

So how much exactly have you spent, Lyd?

0:20:000:20:03

I think £128.

0:20:030:20:06

You're, of course, not happy with that, are you?

0:20:060:20:08

-Well, I think we should have spent more.

-Yes. I quite agree.

0:20:080:20:11

-I do.

-But anyway, you spent 128.

0:20:110:20:12

I would like £172 of leftover lolly.

0:20:120:20:15

You want some change, do you? There's your leftover lolly.

0:20:150:20:18

Leftover housekeeping. I'm going to hand this over to the long-suffering David Barby.

0:20:180:20:23

-So right.

-He's our hero actually.

-He definitely is.

0:20:230:20:26

You've got all that dosh and you've got to go off and buy

0:20:260:20:29

the bonus buy but at least nobody's going to tell you what to do, David.

0:20:290:20:32

Absolutely. They've got such diverse tastes.

0:20:320:20:35

So this time, Tim, I'm going to buy something that I like.

0:20:350:20:39

Buy something that you like that's going to make a big profit. And good luck with that.

0:20:390:20:43

Why don't we check out what the Blue team bought, eh?

0:20:430:20:46

They really got cooking with the toy kitchen range.

0:20:480:20:52

And all agreed, £65 was the right price for the Clarice Cliff vase.

0:20:520:20:58

Finally, they just strolled off with a commemorative walking stick.

0:20:580:21:03

-Now for that cup of tea.

-Yeah. Cup of tea.

0:21:040:21:06

Well done, girls. I think you've done rather well.

0:21:060:21:08

-What's all this? You finished?

-Yeah.

-Yes.

0:21:080:21:10

-That's a result, isn't it?

-Do you want to join us for a cup of tea?

0:21:100:21:13

I'd rather do the leftover lolly really. How much did you spend?

0:21:130:21:16

-£240.

-Yeah.

0:21:160:21:18

Yes. That's a good number is £240.

0:21:180:21:21

-Not cheap, these girls, are they?

-Not cheap but it's good fun.

0:21:210:21:24

Good fun. £240. So there's 60 notes left over.

0:21:240:21:27

-You've got the 60 notes?

-Yeah.

-You got that crispy?

0:21:270:21:30

-Yes.

-Thank you very much.

-Thanks, Tim.

0:21:300:21:32

-OK, Timbo. What's this then?

-This is our last item.

0:21:320:21:34

It's your last item. This is rather good, isn't it?

0:21:340:21:36

Do you know what I'm going to do with this? I'm going to give you the stick, Thomas.

0:21:360:21:40

Going to knight you, Sir Bargain Hunt. Arise.

0:21:400:21:44

Anyway, I'm not giving an opinion on that. Thank you very much.

0:21:440:21:47

-Here's £60 anyway.

-Thank you.

0:21:470:21:49

You like that. See, straightaway, he snatched it.

0:21:490:21:51

What are you going to do with it? It's not for you, you know.

0:21:510:21:54

I've seen something very stylish.

0:21:540:21:55

Have you? Good. Well, you'd better hobble off and find it then.

0:21:550:22:00

Anyway, good luck, girls. But for us though, while Tom goes off

0:22:000:22:03

and weaves his magic wand, we're going off somewhere magical too.

0:22:030:22:07

We're going to Canons Ashby in Northamptonshire. Ooh ahh.

0:22:070:22:12

Canons Ashby, home to the Dryden family since the 1550s

0:22:190:22:24

and let me tell you, there's more to this manor house than meets the eye.

0:22:240:22:28

In 1708, Edward Dryden was running his own successful London business.

0:22:280:22:35

He was married to a wealthy well-connected wife and on top of all of that, he inherited this.

0:22:350:22:42

The family pile.

0:22:420:22:43

Lucky chap, what.

0:22:430:22:46

Edward was a dedicated follower of fashion and couldn't resist making a few changes here and there.

0:22:460:22:53

In the dining room alone, Edward lowered the floor so as to improve the proportions of the room.

0:22:530:23:00

He added costly Wainscot panelling, so that it was warmer.

0:23:000:23:05

And, of course, he added the must-have early 1700s feature, which is sash windows,

0:23:050:23:13

so that you could enjoy the recently landscaped gardens more easily.

0:23:130:23:18

Edward and Elizabeth sure did understand about the finer things in life.

0:23:260:23:31

And here, in the dining room, we've got a very rare survival of their time.

0:23:310:23:36

A solid silver tea kettle, which was commissioned by them in 1712.

0:23:360:23:43

It was made by Thomas Sadler, a famous silversmith in London.

0:23:430:23:48

And it remains nigh on 300 years later still in the house for which it was made.

0:23:480:23:55

These things are extraordinary objects, aren't they?

0:23:550:23:58

The scale of the tea kettle and the gauge of the metal in it exude quality.

0:23:580:24:04

It's polyagonal, not round.

0:24:040:24:06

It's got these chamfered sides.

0:24:060:24:09

It's got a handsome and imposing swing overhead handle,

0:24:090:24:13

all thoroughly worked out for your convenience.

0:24:130:24:17

This section being in turned mahogany, so that when it gets hot you don't hurt your hand.

0:24:170:24:21

And, of course, it's got another heat-proof knob on the top.

0:24:210:24:27

The lower part forms an elaborate stand with these C and S scrolls making up the legs.

0:24:270:24:34

And the centre section is the part that would have held a reservoir of methylated spirits and the cover

0:24:340:24:39

encloses a hole through which the wick would have extended.

0:24:390:24:45

And when the tea kettle was delivered to the dining room,

0:24:450:24:49

it would be lit and the flame would literally heat

0:24:490:24:53

the bottom of the kettle and keep the water warm.

0:24:530:24:56

Now you might think that you'd then shove some tea into the kettle and brew it.

0:24:560:25:01

Well, you wouldn't, because there would be a separate teapot

0:25:010:25:04

within which you'd do the brewing. This thing is simply for the water.

0:25:040:25:08

Of course, tea was fantastically expensive.

0:25:080:25:10

A pound of tea apparently in the early part of the 18th century

0:25:100:25:13

cost five bob and that's the equivalent of £400 today.

0:25:130:25:18

Wow. The big question today is, of course, are our teams going to need

0:25:180:25:22

tea and sympathy over at the auction?

0:25:220:25:25

We've travelled to the outskirts of Derby to be with Charles Hanson at Hansons Auctioneers.

0:25:280:25:35

-Charles, how are you?

-It's been a while.

0:25:350:25:36

It's been a while. Missing you already.

0:25:360:25:40

Now, Jennifer and Lydia have got this little whacky group here,

0:25:400:25:43

including this spoon, which looks as if it should be 1907,

0:25:430:25:48

but in fact it's 1946.

0:25:480:25:50

It's charming. It's rustic.

0:25:500:25:53

-You mean it's made by hand.

-Correct.

-Thanks, Charles. What's it worth?

0:25:530:25:57

-Well, £15-£20.

-OK. £30 paid.

-Right.

0:25:570:26:00

-Now, these teapot stand jobbies. Bright and breezy.

-Yes.

0:26:000:26:04

-Trying to be Clarice Cliff, but not.

-They are.

0:26:040:26:06

What does a poor man's Clarice Cliff in the way of a teapot stand make these days?

0:26:060:26:10

Condition is everything.

0:26:100:26:11

They're in good condition. The enamelling hasn't flaked.

0:26:110:26:14

James Kent. OK. Mediocre name, but from that wonderful period of the mid to late '30s.

0:26:140:26:19

-Between £25 and £35.

-Perfect. £30 paid.

-Good.

0:26:190:26:22

-So that's bang in the middle.

-OK.

-David Barby at his best.

0:26:220:26:25

-And Jennifer has gone with this, well, what shall we call it, a vase?

-A centrepiece. A table centrepiece.

0:26:250:26:31

-Yes.

-Come vase.

-It would be Murano?

-I think so.

0:26:310:26:34

-Yes.

-And its value is decorative.

0:26:340:26:36

-What I quite like about it, it's rather like a cornucopia at the bottom.

-Indeed.

0:26:360:26:41

You've got this curly Q scroll. Up it comes to a trumpet, but for me,

0:26:410:26:45

it completely loses it from that moment on,

0:26:450:26:47

because we then come up to this outpouring of glass here on the top.

0:26:470:26:51

So do you rate it at all, Charles?

0:26:510:26:53

I think its value will be fought between £20 and £35.

0:26:530:26:57

-£68 paid.

-Right.

0:26:570:26:59

Well, that's enough to send anybody into a tailspin, so they're quite likely to need their bonus buy.

0:26:590:27:04

Let's go and have a look at it.

0:27:040:27:07

Now, you girls, you gave David Barby £172 of leftover lolly,

0:27:070:27:12

which is a small fortune. What we want to know is has he blown the lot?

0:27:120:27:16

I didn't blow the lot. And this is what I bought.

0:27:160:27:18

A little French beaker. Date-wise, probably middle of the 19th century.

0:27:180:27:22

Beautifully engraved all the way round with this initialled cartouche.

0:27:220:27:26

-What do you think?

-Can I?

0:27:260:27:29

Well, I agree with you.

0:27:290:27:31

I think it's very nice.

0:27:310:27:32

I can't quite see all the cartouche.

0:27:320:27:34

Have a go at these, look.

0:27:340:27:36

Try that on and see whether you can see something with those.

0:27:360:27:40

-Those are plus two and a half.

-Plus two and a half.

0:27:400:27:43

-Oh, that's much better.

-There you go, you see.

0:27:430:27:45

Can I borrow them?

0:27:450:27:47

-Lydia, do you think that's good?

-Yes. I do.

0:27:470:27:49

I hope this bit will make some money because I don't think ours will.

0:27:490:27:53

Jennifer, you have a handle. Do you need two and a halfs, or one and a halfs?

0:27:530:27:57

-Can I be of assistance?

-Well, I may as well.

0:27:570:27:59

-You may as well. What do you think about that?

-Yes.

0:27:590:28:03

Good. Well that's been a great success, David.

0:28:030:28:05

-Are we allowed to ask how much you paid for it?

-I bought it for £55.

0:28:050:28:09

-OK.

-Jennifer, what do you think? Would you have bought that for 55?

0:28:090:28:14

-What, me?

-Yes. For £55.

-Could I say no?

0:28:140:28:17

-You wouldn't have done.

-No, Jennifer wouldn't.

0:28:170:28:20

-I feel as though I'm in a magistrates court.

-Yes!

0:28:200:28:23

Well, I'm going to pronounce you guilty anyway.

0:28:230:28:26

And for the viewers at home,

0:28:260:28:28

let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about David's little beaker.

0:28:280:28:32

-So, Charles, over to you.

-Thank you.

0:28:320:28:34

-You're our beaker expert.

-Yes.

-Plain, isn't it?

0:28:340:28:36

It is plain. It's simple. It's restrained.

0:28:360:28:38

I would have guessed it's going to be around 1830, 1850.

0:28:380:28:42

-It's got this curious etched design on it, hasn't it?

-Yes. It has.

0:28:420:28:46

I think 1830, 1840's fine for that.

0:28:460:28:48

Also the gauge of silver's a lot thinner here, so we know that an earlier mark has been erased out.

0:28:480:28:54

-Right.

-Just maybe, just from the feel of it.

0:28:540:28:56

-It could be, couldn't it?

-The gauge is slightly slimmer.

0:28:560:28:58

-Where are we coming from?

-Well, I would evaluate it today between £30 and £50.

-£55 paid.

0:28:580:29:04

-Right.

-David Barby rates it.

0:29:040:29:06

The proof will be in the pudding and who knows,

0:29:060:29:08

the lovely Reds may not go with their expert. Anyway, that's it for them.

0:29:080:29:12

Now for the Blues. And what whacky things they've got.

0:29:120:29:14

-Charles, you don't play with toys much these days, do you?

-I'm past that, sadly.

0:29:140:29:19

Yes, but you could easily have had a set like this in your toy box.

0:29:190:29:22

-It's kitsch, isn't it?

-It is kitsch.

0:29:220:29:25

It's got such a charming look about it.

0:29:250:29:27

In your kitchen you could have this little range set up

0:29:270:29:31

-and thoroughly enjoy looking at it as a decorative piece.

-Yes.

0:29:310:29:35

I think it's absolutely charming.

0:29:350:29:37

It's complete. It's fairly comprehensive.

0:29:370:29:40

-I don't think any of these pots are later editions.

-Yes.

0:29:400:29:44

And our guide price would be between £20 and £30.

0:29:440:29:46

OK. £35 paid.

0:29:460:29:47

Next is the handled Clarice Cliff jug. How do you rate that?

0:29:470:29:52

If it was a tennis pattern in that great Art Deco gaudy design it would be a jug worth £2,000 or £3,000.

0:29:520:29:57

It isn't. It's at the other scale, where we are at that more...

0:29:570:30:00

-Boring really.

-Boring. It's in good condition.

0:30:000:30:03

A whacky handle. But that's really it.

0:30:030:30:05

OK. It's got a whacky handle and it's boring. What's it worth?

0:30:050:30:09

Well, my guide price is between £30 and £40.

0:30:090:30:12

-£65 paid.

-OK.

-That could be a bit of a struggle.

-Yes, it could.

0:30:120:30:16

But they are absolutely pinning their hopes on this walking stick. How do you see it, Charles?

0:30:160:30:21

Well, when I first picked it up it felt heavy,

0:30:210:30:24

which sent alarm bells ringing, because I suspect

0:30:240:30:28

rather than being 1900, 1920, I think it might be more...

0:30:280:30:31

-1962.

-Exactly, '70s.

-Or even '80s.

-Exactly.

0:30:310:30:35

This is absolutely crucial when coming up with the valuation, because your liability

0:30:350:30:40

as an auctioneer, if you sell this as being around 1900

0:30:400:30:44

-and it turns out to be a later fake, then you're in trouble, aren't you?

-Indeed.

0:30:440:30:49

You're describing it as a later copy, are you?

0:30:490:30:51

I am describing it as a later copy, Tim.

0:30:510:30:53

I'm happy it's a decorative but later commemorative cane.

0:30:530:30:57

Fine. But it's going to torpedo the £140 they paid, isn't it?

0:30:570:31:01

Between £30 and £50.

0:31:010:31:03

-Is your realistic estimate.

-Yes. It is.

-For a copy.

0:31:030:31:05

I think you're absolutely sound there, Charles.

0:31:050:31:07

If we're right, they're going to need their bonus buy.

0:31:070:31:10

Let's go and have a look at it.

0:31:100:31:12

Now, Christie and Abbey, you spent £240. You gave Tom £60.

0:31:120:31:16

What did he spend it on?

0:31:160:31:18

A very nice Art Deco lamp base.

0:31:180:31:21

It's in glass on an octagonal base.

0:31:210:31:25

-I like it.

-It's quite cool, isn't it?

0:31:250:31:27

When was it made?

0:31:270:31:28

Probably made 1930s I would say.

0:31:280:31:31

I mean, it's a real Thomas Plant special.

0:31:310:31:33

-Lovely.

-£30. I see a profit in it.

0:31:330:31:35

-You may have convinced me.

-It's a good thing. It's a really good-looking object.

0:31:350:31:40

You can imagine that in a living room.

0:31:400:31:42

-And quite young for a younger audience?

-I suppose. Yeah.

0:31:420:31:45

-It looks quite '70s to me.

-It is growing on me.

-It looks '70s.

0:31:450:31:48

That's interesting because a lot of derivative design in the '70s is from the '30s so that's very smart.

0:31:480:31:54

-No. I like it.

-Anyway, you watched his lips. Right.

0:31:540:31:57

You heard him say it's going to make, £40, £60, £80 even.

0:31:570:32:01

If you need to, you can choose it later, but right now, for the audience at home,

0:32:010:32:05

let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about Tom's lamp.

0:32:050:32:08

-OK, Carlos.

-Thank you, Tim.

0:32:080:32:10

-There's something a bit special for you.

-First of all, the weight of it.

0:32:100:32:14

It's heavy for the right reasons.

0:32:140:32:15

And chrome-mounted, it's obviously glass rather than being anything else like Bakelite.

0:32:150:32:20

-I think it's period.

-Good.

0:32:200:32:21

-Having said all that, Charles, what's it worth?

-Between £30 and £40.

0:32:210:32:25

Great. Planter only paid £35, so he's spot on in the middle.

0:32:250:32:28

With any luck, there's some potential for making a bit more.

0:32:280:32:31

-I think so.

-I think so too.

0:32:310:32:33

All done? Gone.

0:32:370:32:39

What do you do if you really, really love somebody and you want to give them a present?

0:32:390:32:45

Well, you find something special, don't you?

0:32:450:32:47

If we look at this object, it doesn't look particularly special.

0:32:470:32:51

In fact, it looks exactly like a tin of paint with a detachable lid

0:32:510:32:57

and hey presto, it has no paint in it.

0:32:570:33:00

What is special about it though is the fact that it's solid silver.

0:33:000:33:04

Here's the London hallmark, look, for 1906.

0:33:040:33:08

But if I turn it round,

0:33:080:33:09

you get to understand the personal mystery of this particular tin.

0:33:090:33:15

And it says, "Rubio. 1908.

0:33:150:33:18

"To Jack, from Bronuwski." So there you have it. Lucky old Jack,

0:33:180:33:24

in 1908, was presented with this special tin.

0:33:240:33:29

So where does this Rubio come in to it?

0:33:290:33:31

Well, if you look it up, Rubio is Spanish.

0:33:310:33:34

And it means blonde or light. And the idiomatic use of that word

0:33:340:33:40

is used to describe blonde tobacco or Virginia tobacco.

0:33:400:33:45

Hey presto, this is no paint tin.

0:33:450:33:48

It's a very special solid silver Edwardian tobacco tin

0:33:480:33:53

that's been presented to Jack, presumably he's a pipe smoker,

0:33:530:33:57

and he would have had his tin of tobacco on his desk,

0:33:570:34:01

lovingly inscribed by his Bronuwski. And there you have it.

0:34:010:34:07

A very special object that you could use today on your desk

0:34:070:34:11

for practically anything.

0:34:110:34:13

It's priced up in the auction at £30 to £50.

0:34:130:34:17

And at that, I have to tell you, it is something of a snip.

0:34:170:34:21

18. 22.

0:34:230:34:26

-So, Jennifer, so Lydia, this is exciting, isn't it?

-It is. Yes.

0:34:260:34:32

-We hope it is.

-First up is your spoon, Lydia. And here it comes.

0:34:320:34:36

A very nice arts and crafts style silver spoon, shaped bulb,

0:34:360:34:40

pierced terminal, London, 1946.

0:34:400:34:43

I'm only bid £12.

0:34:430:34:45

Do I see 15? 15. 18. 20. Two. Five.

0:34:450:34:48

I'm out. Do I see eight now? Eight.

0:34:480:34:51

30. Two. Five. Eight. 40. Two.

0:34:510:34:55

Five. One more, sir.

0:34:550:34:58

Isn't that lovely?

0:34:580:34:59

-That's a surprise.

-At £42. All done.

0:34:590:35:02

We say sell and standing at £42.

0:35:020:35:04

-Fantastic!

-What a surprise.

0:35:040:35:06

-Well done, Lydia.

-Ye of little faith.

0:35:060:35:08

Plus 12. You're £12 up. Here we go.

0:35:080:35:11

These James Kent, circular dish stands, each very richly enamelled,

0:35:110:35:14

with colourful flowers and leaves on a yellow ground.

0:35:140:35:17

I am bid £20 here. Do I see two now?

0:35:170:35:19

Look at them. £20. Two. Five. Eight.

0:35:190:35:22

30. And two, sir.

0:35:220:35:23

-Come on. Come on.

-I'm out. Where's five? Come on.

0:35:230:35:27

At £32, do I see five now, surely?

0:35:270:35:29

At £32, surely five. Come on.

0:35:290:35:32

One more. Fair warning that we are selling at £32 to you, sir.

0:35:320:35:37

£32. Plus £2. Well done, David.

0:35:370:35:39

A profit.

0:35:390:35:41

Oh, dear. Now the vase.

0:35:410:35:43

A very, very fine 1950s glass vase.

0:35:430:35:46

Could be Italian. There we are.

0:35:460:35:48

Well, I'm bid £10 for it. Do I see 12 now? Just look at it for £10.

0:35:480:35:52

At ten. Where's 12? And 15.

0:35:520:35:54

18. 18. 20, madam.

0:35:540:35:57

Two. Come on. £20. Where's two?

0:35:570:35:59

Quickly. Quickly. Quickly. 20. Once.

0:35:590:36:02

Twice. One more, madam. Two. Five.

0:36:020:36:04

-One more. At £25.

-Look at that.

-30.

0:36:040:36:09

You can't lose it now, surely. One more, ma'am. 30. Two. Five.

0:36:090:36:13

-We're getting so near. One more.

-Look at this, Jennifer.

0:36:130:36:16

-He's so good trying.

-One more, ma'am. 35. 38. 40.

0:36:160:36:19

You're in, sir, at £38.

0:36:190:36:23

Fair warning, all done. Take 40.

0:36:230:36:25

At £38, the gavel falls to you.

0:36:250:36:28

You're minus £30 on that, which means overall you're minus £16,

0:36:280:36:33

which is not bad.

0:36:330:36:35

-It could be a winning score, minus 16.

-I don't think so.

0:36:350:36:38

-You don't think it will be.

-A winning score?

-Could be.

0:36:380:36:41

-Most definitely not.

-Why not, if the Blues don't do very well.

0:36:410:36:44

My instinct tells me there's going to be some good things.

0:36:440:36:47

-OK.

-Are we going for the beaker?

0:36:470:36:49

Can we go for your beaker?

0:36:490:36:51

-It's entirely your hands, not me.

-Yes. We will.

0:36:510:36:54

Silver beaker. Engraved with floral scrolls.

0:36:540:36:57

Initialled AP, we believe it to be around 1830, 1840.

0:36:570:37:00

I am bid £20.

0:37:000:37:02

Five and 30. I'll take two now.

0:37:020:37:04

30. I'll take two for it. Come on.

0:37:040:37:06

-30 I'm bid. Where's two? Come on. 30.

-I want to put my hand up.

0:37:060:37:11

30. I'll take two. Five. Eight, sir. One more. 38.

0:37:110:37:13

And I've got 40. And two.

0:37:130:37:15

I'm out. I'll take five now.

0:37:150:37:17

At £42. Fair warning. All done.

0:37:170:37:20

We say sale at £42.

0:37:200:37:23

Bad luck, David. 42. That's minus 13.

0:37:230:37:25

That's not right. Minus £29. Could be a winning score.

0:37:250:37:29

Just don't tell the Blues a thing.

0:37:290:37:31

Five. 55.

0:37:310:37:33

Come on, sir. One more. It's yours.

0:37:330:37:35

Next up is the paint tin.

0:37:400:37:42

Here it comes. Estimate £30 to £50.

0:37:420:37:45

Isn't it wonderful? Silver syrup tin, Edwardian, London 1906.

0:37:450:37:49

Lots and lots of interest. I'm in at double the estimate at £100 now. Do I see 110?

0:37:490:37:54

110. 120. 130. 140. 150. 160. 170.

0:37:540:37:57

I'm out. Do I see 180 now? At 170.

0:37:570:38:00

Do I see 180, surely? At 170. Fair warning. All down to you, sir.

0:38:000:38:04

We say sold at £170. I'm out and you're in, sir.

0:38:040:38:07

Well, that's not bad, is it? Six times the low estimate.

0:38:070:38:12

Rubio, eh. Lovely.

0:38:120:38:14

Five. Eight, sir.

0:38:160:38:17

Now, Christie and Abbey, do you know how the Reds got on?

0:38:190:38:22

-No.

-No idea.

-You don't want to know, I can tell you.

0:38:220:38:25

Abbey, your doll's kitchen set I think is divine.

0:38:250:38:29

You paid £35 for it.

0:38:290:38:30

He's estimated £20 to £30, but surely, someone somewhere

0:38:300:38:35

-must just fall in love with it as it's a great object.

-It's lovely.

0:38:350:38:38

So you should get away with at least a wiped face, all right.

0:38:380:38:41

-And here it comes.

-It's a 1950s miniature tinplate cooker range

0:38:410:38:45

with 14 various cooking utensils. There we are. I've got no bids.

0:38:450:38:48

Ohhh!

0:38:480:38:50

But do I see £10?

0:38:500:38:52

All these hands going up. Ten. 15. 20. Five. 30. Five. 40.

0:38:520:38:57

In green. One more. 40. Five. Are you sure?

0:38:570:39:01

45. 50. No, she says.

0:39:010:39:03

At 45, the lady. I'll take 50 now.

0:39:030:39:06

That's very good, Abbey.

0:39:060:39:08

Well done. Well done, you two.

0:39:080:39:11

At £45. The gavel is falling.

0:39:110:39:13

Well done, ladies. That's lovely.

0:39:130:39:15

-Brilliant.

-That's £10. You must be pleased.

0:39:150:39:18

-We are. Very.

-1930s Clarice Cliff My Garden pattern jug. There it is.

0:39:180:39:23

A handle of turquoise berries. In good condition. I'm only bid £20.

0:39:230:39:26

Do I see two now? 20. I'll take two.

0:39:260:39:29

And come on. Look at it. Two. Five. Eight. 30 I've got.

0:39:290:39:32

Two and I'm out. Where's five?

0:39:320:39:34

I'll take five now, surely. Five. 40. Five down here. 45. 50. Five.

0:39:340:39:40

-One more. Go on.

-Come on.

0:39:400:39:42

I'll take five. One more, sir.

0:39:420:39:44

50. I'll take five. Once, twice and three times. We're selling.

0:39:440:39:48

At £50, the gavel falls.

0:39:480:39:50

-Minus 15, which means overall you're minus five.

-Minus five.

0:39:500:39:54

Now, the wretched walking stick.

0:39:540:39:56

Interesting cane. This commemorative white metal mounted walking stick

0:39:560:40:00

with a wonderful commemoration for Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria,

0:40:000:40:03

but we believe to be later.

0:40:030:40:05

Why do you believe it to be later?

0:40:050:40:07

Perhaps 30 or so years on, but ever so interesting. I will start at £40.

0:40:070:40:11

Do I see five now? 45. 50. Five.

0:40:110:40:14

I've got 65. 70. Five.

0:40:140:40:17

I've got 70 on my book.

0:40:170:40:18

Do I see five now? 70. I'll take five.

0:40:180:40:21

Come on, sir. One more, it's yours. No, he says, five and I'm out. £75.

0:40:210:40:24

Do I see 80 now?

0:40:240:40:26

At £75. Fair warning.

0:40:260:40:28

All done. We are selling...

0:40:280:40:30

80. Five. One more, sir. Come on.

0:40:300:40:33

One more. Only five.

0:40:330:40:35

No, he says. You're in, sir. 80. I'll take five if it helps you. No.

0:40:350:40:39

-85. 90.

-Yes.

-Thank you.

0:40:390:40:41

£85. Fair warning before I sell. All done.

0:40:410:40:43

Minus 55, which means overall you're minus 60. Minus £60 overall.

0:40:430:40:48

-What do you want to do?

-Go for it.

-Go for it.

0:40:480:40:50

Minus 60. We might as well.

0:40:500:40:51

-Go for that then.

-Yeah. Definitely.

-Yeah. You sure?

-Yep.

0:40:510:40:54

-Yeah?

-Yeah. We're minus 60.

0:40:540:40:56

-It can't really get that much worse.

-Could be a winning score. Minus 60.

0:40:560:41:00

-We'll try.

-I've got faith in this table lamp.

0:41:000:41:02

-Here it comes.

-An interesting and very stylish Art Deco slate

0:41:020:41:06

and clear glass lamp base. There it is. Lots of interest here.

0:41:060:41:09

-Smart thing.

-Lots of interest here.

0:41:090:41:11

And I'm going ten. 20. 30. 40. 50.

0:41:110:41:14

-£60.

-Yes!

0:41:140:41:16

-Do I see five now?

-I'm vindicated.

0:41:160:41:19

Five. 60. I'll take five.

0:41:190:41:21

70. Takes my under bid. Do I see five now?

0:41:210:41:23

-Go on!

-70. I'll take five. Come on.

0:41:230:41:26

-Go on. Bid against him.

-£70. Where's five now? Once. Twice.

0:41:260:41:29

We're selling at £70. Yes, we are.

0:41:290:41:32

Well done, Tom.

0:41:320:41:33

That's absolutely marvellous. You've doubled your money.

0:41:330:41:36

That is plus £35, all right.

0:41:360:41:38

That's really good, which drags your score back to minus £25.

0:41:380:41:43

It could be a winning score.

0:41:430:41:46

Well, there you are. It could be a winning score.

0:41:460:41:48

We're just going to have to find out in a minute.

0:41:480:41:51

All these hands going up. Five. 40.

0:41:510:41:54

-So, girls, you've been chatting?

-No.

-No little chat?

0:42:010:42:04

Oh, yes. Oh, yes.

0:42:040:42:06

-Been talking about it?

-Of course we have.

-The score?

0:42:060:42:09

-Oh, no, no, no, no!

-Oh, no, no, no!

0:42:090:42:12

-Not between us.

-No, no, no.

-Between us.

0:42:120:42:15

Oh, between us. Well, anyway, who would believe it that after all

0:42:150:42:18

these losses all round, there is only £4 between the teams.

0:42:180:42:23

£4 only.

0:42:230:42:26

But I have to tell you that the margin has turned against the Reds.

0:42:260:42:30

-Oh, dear. Not again.

-We're desolated.

0:42:300:42:33

-Well done.

-Your total is minus 29, which is nothing to be ashamed of.

0:42:330:42:38

-No. Not at all.

-And I hope you had a lovely time.

0:42:380:42:41

-We have.

-But the victors today.

0:42:410:42:43

This is amazing, isn't it? You're minus 25, OK,

0:42:430:42:47

largely helped by Thomas Plant's bonus buy with a profit of £35.

0:42:470:42:50

Thank you very much, Tim.

0:42:500:42:52

And you two were so sniffy about that lamp.

0:42:520:42:54

-I liked it.

-"I liked it."

-I did!

0:42:540:42:57

She said, "I liked it." You liked it after it made £35 profit.

0:42:570:43:01

-I liked it more.

-You liked it more. You've been great fun.

0:43:010:43:04

-I hope you had a nice time.

-We did.

-Very much so.

0:43:040:43:06

We've loved having you on the show. It's been fantastic.

0:43:060:43:09

-Join us soon for some more bargain hunting. Yes?

-Yes!

It's an all-female line-up; a youthful blue team pit their skills against a more mature red team. Lending them a hand are two Bargain Hunt favourites - Thomas Plant and David Barby. There's not much to smile about at the auction but Tim keeps up everyone's spirits with a trip to Canons Ashby in Northamptonshire.
