This is where we find out how good our teams really are.
But aren't we getting a bit ahead of ourselves?
Because let's go bargain-hunting!
We've got a spot of shopping to do first
here at the Royal Highland Showground
on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
'In today's show...
'There are temptations and tantrums...'
-Oh come on, don't be so silly.
I'll just take myself as reprimanded.
'And plain old disasters.'
-They're very nice.
-Bumped into it.
That's me! Oh, I don't believe it!
'Don't say I didn't warn you!'
Marcelle, you and Debbie have got quite a lot in common, don't you?
Yes, we do. We're both from South Africa.
I'm married to her brother, so we're sisters-in-law
and we both like motorbikes.
So, you two get on like a house on fire?
Absolutely, I'm the matches and she's the tinder.
Ah, so there are a few sparks there between you?
Absolutely, I have a tendency to coerce her into things
that she doesn't really want to do.
So, Debbie, how do you feel about being bullied into all these challenges then?
The problem is, I hate to be called a chicken.
So I will do my best to do anything that somebody challenges me to do.
Within reason, of course.
She has a tendency to throw me off bridges and down into gorges.
-Things that I don't particularly like.
And what do you do for a living, Debs? You're an antique dealer?!
I'm a store manager.
Any particular store?
Well, I used to work for a charity organisation
and a great, great amount of bric-a-brac comes through,
some very interesting pieces that we pass through our doors.
From which you would learn quite a lot.
We get a certain amount of info on hallmarks and that sort of thing.
-Yeah, how to price stuff up and what not.
I think you two are going to be amply qualified for today
-and very good luck.
-Now, chaps, that's rather horrifying, isn't it?
One of them runs a charity shop and is an expert.
Now, Daniel, you're both good mates, right?
We played football at the same team.
Gordon was captain for a good number of years
and we were good mates then and continued from there.
That's great, isn't it?
Are you going to be adopting any sporting tactics on today's show?
If we could pick up some sporting memorabilia,
something like that would be quite good.
-That's what you're going for?
So, do you support the same team? Is that where you are now?
We support rival teams in Edinburgh, so...
Deliberately, or just happened to work out like that?
I sort of do it just to wind up all the Hearts fans.
Do you argue with him a bit, then?
We'd argue more about other things rather than football, to be fair.
We get on generally pretty well.
-But you're not scared of these girls?
-Not at all.
I can tell that nervous flick in your eye,
you know you're going to be in trouble.
Anyway, the money moment. Here you go, £300 apiece.
You know the rules. Your experts await and off you go!
Very, very, very good luck. Sparks are going to fly today!
'Fighting the flames, we've got two of our favourite experts.'
'For the Red team, it's David Barby.
'And man in the middle,
'Charlie Hanson, with the Blues.'
-What are you going to look for, Debbie?
-I fancy maybe something silver.
-Anything that stands out.
-I'm thinking pigs.
-You love pigs?
I've got a whole collection of pigs.
I think there's one dealer in here specialises in Beswick.
-That's where we're going.
-They're bound to have some pigs. Let's have a look.
'Where there's muck, there's brass, eh, David?'
-Dundee United there.
-Dundee United and Rangers.
-No chance! No chance!
-Oh, look, yes!
-He's got so much character, look!
-Let's have a look. How would you say that's got character?
-Look at that face!
-Look at that face, first of all.
If you look at it compared to that one,
-it disappears because it's all white.
-I like that one.
But he's got a face only Marcelle could love.
You can see his nose clearly.
I think he's quite good. I like it. Sir?
The lady's interested in the pig, I would say pigs,
go for both of them.
-Right, OK, pigs.
-The very best is 50.
-The very best?
-Very, very best.
-What do you think they'll make at auction?
-That's 25 quid each.
-Yes, is that good or bad?
-That's the better one.
-This one is a lot better than this one.
-See, see, I've got taste.
-You've got good taste. You have indeed.
Could you consider 45 for the two?
-Just 45, just 45?
-Can't do it, sorry.
I'm not convinced that they're going to make a lot at auction.
They're not going to make a lot, but they're going to make a profit.
Well, today is my day to become a millionaire, so...
-You won't lose money on them.
-I think they're jolly nice.
-I think they're nice, I think go for them.
-We're taking them.
-How about, just to make my day, 48?
-Can you do 48, Sir?
-Go on, then. OK.
-Yes! Thank you.
-They nearly came together - did you see that?
-They nearly came together.
-I would never put them together, never.
-Nearly smashed 'em then!
-Within the first two minutes of shopping, you've gone and bought something.
-That really is very, very good.
-The rest I'll leave up to her, she needs time.
-Is that so, Debbie?
I think she thinks I'm slow.
-That's quite nice, isn't it?
-I think it's a compact.
If you were a lady in the 1930s,
you'd use this for your make-up.
There's your powder, is there, you see.
All in there and it's very sweet, nice quality, compact,
in a sort of travelling case. It's cute, isn't it? Novelty.
£39, not a lot of money.
Is that something that would be profitable?
It could be, it could be.
I think at auction, I would say between 30 and 50, so it's on the cusp again. We'll comeback.
'You boys are being cautious.
'But hang on, what's up?
'Is that a pig's ear I spy?'
There's just a slight little nick there, can you feel that, Debbie?
-Yeah. There's a nick in there.
That might go against it, actually.
Might go against it, so we ought to see if the dealer can actually reduce the price a little bit more,
allowing for that chip.
Hello, I'm sorry to bother you but,
can you feel that there?
Oh, a very little chip.
A little chip there, which I think will go against it at auction if a dealer is buying it.
-We've agreed on £48...
-Can you make some allowance for that little damage?
-£40. Ladies, are you agreeable to that?
OK, shall we go for 40?
-Let's go for it. Yes.
-Thank you very much, thank you.
You've got some sweets as well? Can I have a sweet?
Thank you, do you want a sweet?
Some of the, the napkin, weird napkin ring? £15?
Something on the tip of your tongue, Charles?
Sorry about that, sorry.
'Now, what's this?'
It's a post office resistance box.
-That's Glasgow, as well.
It's one of the more complex ones, a higher quality one.
I like the fact that it's still got the instructions.
It's still got the instructions there, the standard readings.
-This is to define whether to break in cables?
-Yeah. Think so.
It checks the resistance to cables which would indicate damage.
Right, OK. It's made in Glasgow, we're selling in Glasgow.
I think that's going to be in its favour, definitely.
It's got all the details here,
ah, year, reference, third...
Pre-Second World War.
If you were born in 1935 you would have a couple of dings on you.
I like it, I think there is something quirky about it,
something totally different. Totally off-the-wall.
I'm concerned about that damage at the back.
Aye, that's why it's £35.
What did you say, £30?
I started off at £45, he says he'll do it for £35.
Marcelle suggested £30.
Do you think this will do well at auction, honestly?
See, I'm not getting that gut feel here, so I think we should move on.
I know nothing about it.
Because I'm thinking "profit, profit, profit,"
-I'm thinking it's not going to.
-But we also got to think, do we like it? And let's have fun with it.
I thought the pigs were the "have fun" bit?
We did, OK, moving on.
I like it, my vote's yes.
Right. Let's see what we find, and we'll come back to this one
if we don't find anything else. Right?
Put your foot down, Debbie!
-These are nice.
-They are one a pair aren't they, as well?
There we go. There's a pair...
-What's your best?
-What's your best?
If you really want my very best it can go up!
They're great, aren't they? They are fully hallmarked, guys.
They're hallmarked for Sheffield, they're about 1910, they're quite light.
Nice shape, they're very, very elegant.
Very classic, Edwardian. Are they swivel tops?
They are just stoppers, aren't they?
Baluster form, 1910, so they are antique. £20, only.
-I'll do them for £20. I'm happy to shake on that.
-That's a good purchase.
-Thank you very much.
They're very nice.
Oh, it's dented, I've dented it.
I can't believe this. I have, haven't I. That's me.
Oh, I don't believe it.
Now, have I got anything I can just get it out with? Hold on.
There we go, I'm fixing it.
'Really, Charles, I hope you're right.'
-This is the type of thing that I like.
-Oh, no it's got wonky.
-No, that's how it should be.
-What's the price on it?
-Something's out of there. See it's all...
No, definitely not.
Don't worry about that, that's just the under sheet,
that can easily be replaced. They're called American rocking chairs.
We made a deal, nothing that's broken.
I know but if something's really old you're going to have your wear and tear.
Yeah, that is nothing. That is nothing.
-If it was fractured, I would worry.
-The wood isn't broken.
-That's just Hessian.
-Let's make a note and we'll come back on it.
I like that.
Marcelle, you have to say yes to something sooner or later.
-Right, you've got the next choice.
-Well, Debbie has made a choice.
Well, I said she must take it. So she can take it if she wants to.
-Are you taking your box or are you going to look?
-I want the box.
-Right, go get the box.
-I'm taking a stand, I want the box.
-The money or the box? Moneeey!
-The box is going to make us money.
-OK, let's go for the box. Debbie, go and clinch the deal.
-And I'll have words with your companion.
-No! The money, no!
-We're definitely going to take it.
-That's great. Thank you.
-Is that a thistle?
-That's a thistle, yes.
-So that's Scottish silver.
-Silver, Scottish silver.
-So that's quite nice, that.
-It really is.
That's quite good, because then you've got two collectors,
you've got the silver and you've got corkscrews.
-What is that, though, is that just plastic?
-No, that's horn.
-That...that...that's a horn.
-Probably from a boar.
-Or a wart hog.
-What do you expect with these two lovelies?
-Is that good?
-I thought so, too. Have you bought anything yet, girls?
-You bought two already?
My gosh, you're getting on with it.
-First one in the first two minutes.
-So this is your third item?
-We've had one or two disagreements.
-We never disagree.
-We just have...
-I'm right, she's wrong, it's that simple.
-I can't possibly advise you on that.
-It's nice, isn't it?
-It does look nice though.
-OK, I'm off.
-Feel free anyway.
-Somewhat fractured here I think.
But, it's such an unusual piece. Silver mounted.
Dated here, 1899 to 1924.
I'm going to suggest this, that we go off and have a look. This is in here.
-Right, and is there any bargaining to be done on the price.
-No, the lowest price he'll come down to is 65.
-I...I really like it.
-I do, I like it.
-I think it's nice.
I just believe that this great hall has something else in it for me.
-League Cup quarter-final. '70-71. See who played on the team that day.
You Blues are going nowhere fast.
Could be a smelly box.
With a grate sort of thing.
Er, you're going to laugh when I tell you,
when I bought it I didn't realise the size of it and I thought it was a lemon squeezer.
-If you look at the lid.
-But the best on it, it's 75, I would do that for 50.
48 is... that's the best, yeah. Don't come back and knock me again.
-Would I do that?
-Thank you very much.
-Do you want to gamble everything?
-I think we've got to do it. We've got to go big.
-Follow me then.
'At last! They're aiming high.'
We've got the rocking-chair, 85.
Out, from what we've seen.
We've got the corkscrew at 65, if it's still there.
-If it's still there.
-Right, right, right. OK.
And then we've got little smellies box. Both Scottish silver.
-Which you wanted.
-I like the corkscrew.
Corkscrew, I'm with the corkscrew too.
-Do you want to go with the corkscrew?
-Do you want to secure that now?
-Or do you want to go round again?
-We've got 15 minutes more.
-Can we finish this lane?
-OK, we'll finish this lane.
-We'll finish this lane and that's it.
Patience, David, is a virtue.
-If you wanted a really big buy...
..I'd buy this.
Because it's solid gold.
And what's it?
It's a George V high and mighty gentleman's accessory.
And we've got here, for example, are you ready? Look at this?
-That's a twizzle stick.
You know, to mix your cocktail or whatever.
You've then got here, what's this? Any ideas?
-Give me a smile.
-It's a toothpick, there you go.
-It's a toothpick.
And then, close that like so and here you've got this, erm,
this little sort of cigar cutter-cum-filter.
To make that sort of perforation into a cigar. It's solid gold, OK?
And it could be yours for about 260, I think.
Do you think it's something that will make a profit or...?
It could make £400. If the right collector's there.
-260, that's a lot of money.
-It's a lot of money.
-Do you think...I think so, I...
-Well, no, look, think about it. It's 260.
-What have we spent so far?
-20. So we're only left £20.
-If you bought that?
-That's a lot of our budget.
Which would mean, then, you'd have to buy one more item for yourselves.
-And leave money for...
-Leave a nice bit for me to really go out and make you money.
-I'm saying myself, for me, I like that.
-I really like that.
And the best is 260? We're going at 260.
-We're buying it. Big spend, guys.
-Thank you very much.
'That's what I like to see. Boys going for gold.'
-£20 to go. It's the Great Escape, isn't it?
-Big escape, yeah.
Something nice and cheap now.
That's a stunning belt.
Each link is marked, which is so good.
-I quite like it, it's something different.
-You prefer that?
I really would like to get something with Scottish silver.
Let's go for the corkscrew.
-I'll give up on the last aisle and we'll get the corkscrew.
-We've got to be very quick.
-Right, being quick, being quick.
-Let's go, let's go, let's go.
I love that.
HE JANGLES A BELL
Time is almost calling us.
-Has it gone, sir?
-Oh the corkscrew, aye, it's sold, sir. Sorry.
-Aw, it's sold.
-No, that's a joke.
-No, it's to be a joke.
Can we buy it from the dealer over there?
Oh, come on, don't be so silly, Marcelle.
I'll just take myself as reprimanded.
-You've got the belt, or the little box.
-The belt or the box?
I'm severely reprimanded.
Erm. I like the belt.
That's nice, is that silver?
Tea strainer with this lovely acanthus cast,
almost pie-crust rim.
Lovely pierced-star design.
It's marked sterling, so probably an American import. What's the best sale on that?
-20 is the best on that.
-We'll do it for £15.
-Could these be £16? Is that OK?
Up to you, £16, to me that's a good buy.
I think we should go for it.
-Shake his hand, shake his hand, quick.
Leather needs a little bit of love and attention
-but it's not brittle, it's not going to split open.
-And it is something unusual.
-We like quirky.
We do like quirky, quirky's good.
The price they're asking is £90.
-Can we get it down?
-The lady has come down to 65.
Just wondering if I can... I'll just see if I can get her to negotiate.
Can you look at it, talk about it, because I do want the consensus between the two of you.
-You both want to go for it.
-I'll go with anything Debbie wants.
-As we have on so many other things before.
-What would you like, Debbie?
-Can we compromise at 55?
-No, because it came down from 75.
-It was 90 yesterday.
-65 is as far as I can come down.
-I say go for it.
-Shall we go for it?
-We can't. We've got two minutes.
-I say go for it.
-Let's go for it.
'Right, that's it. Let's have a look at what the Reds bought.
'Marcelle and Debbie got swine fever when they saw the Beswick pigs.
-'How much? £40 the pair'
-The money, no!
'There was nearly a communication breakdown
'over the GPO resistance box.
'But, happily, they all agreed on the belt.'
It's just one of those things.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
What is your particular silver lining at the moment, Bobby?
-Er, resolving some dispute between the two girls.
Between the two girls? I think you'll find it's between the experts and the one girl.
-How much did you spend all round, then?
-£135, I think.
-Is that all?
-135, with all this flimflam.
-We did try.
-135, so I would like, please, 165 left over.
I'm all of a shake and a quiver. That's it. We're all complete.
-That's a good amount.
-You can't complain about that.
-No, that's lovely.
-Did you have high expectations?
-I don't want to blow it all.
I think it's going to make a terrible loss.
-Would that ever happen?
-At least you're honest!
-Don't let it happen again! Anyway, very good luck with that.
-Good luck, girls.
-Why don't we check out what the Blue Team's bought?
For £20, the George V baluster pepper pots
were not to be sneezed at.
The boys went for broke,
paying a whopping £260 for the gentleman's gold accessory.
With only £20 left, they bought a silver tea strainer for £16.
-That means you spent £296. And I'm proud of you, boys.
-You had a great time doing it?
I tell you what, I normally take the £4 and hand it to Charles,
but as it's only £4, why don't you hand it to him directly?
Never once have I seen coins and not notes, so it's a great concern.
-Four single pound coins.
-That's your challenge, Charles. And good luck with it.
Poor old Charles, what's he going to do?
While he's sweating in Scotland, I'm off to east London
to show you another side to one of our best-loved designers -
Today we remember him essentially for his gorgeous wallpaper designs.
But in his day, Morris was equally well known as a poet,
an author and a shopkeeper.
Morris's shop at 449, Oxford Street was an outlet for his own creations,
from paper hangings to furniture.
But he was equally enthusiastic about the work of his contemporaries.
It's a bit like being in a sweetshop, this.
I want you to imagine that you're actually shopping
in William Morris's shop in, say, 1870.
What sort of things might we find?
Let's try a bit of glassware, shall we?
The productions sitting inside this cabinet all relates
to the White Friars Glassworks which, at that time,
was run by a man called Harry Powell,
who was a progressive glassmaker
who was particularly interested in ancient pieces of glass.
And he supplied whole suites for William Morris to sell for him.
For example, if you take this goblet,
you see all these little irregular blobs on the outside?
They are called prunts, and they relate back
to Rhenish pieces of glass dating from the 15th century,
the idea being that those little prunts of rough glass that are sticking out
would enable you, in a drunken orgy, to be able to grip the glass
and stop it sliding from between your hands.
Each of these pieces are extremely finely blown.
Harry Powell used to visit the British Museum
and look for really ancient glass, glass from the Roman period.
And if you go to the British Museum,
you'll find an original glass jug like that, dating back 2,000 years.
And all Powell did was to pinch the idea of the design
and reproduce it for sale in Morris's arts and crafts shop.
But if you weren't shopping in Morris's shop for glass,
why not try some ceramics or copper?
On the top shelf in this cabinet we've got an array of wares
by William Frend de Morgan.
Good name, Frend de Morgan, isn't it?
In fact, he was a friend of William Morris's.
He had worked for William Morris, and ultimately, after he left,
he developed a passion for this lustre decorated earthenware.
He, at one time, was credited with rediscovering this ancient technique
where different temperatures within the kiln
gave rise to these luscious metallic effects.
Actually, William de Morgan didn't reinvent the technique,
but he did it, more or less, at the same time as his rivals in Italy
A favourite is this one, decorated with two antelope in a garden,
a design that he's interpreted from an Iznik or Persian pot.
If you didn't fancy the ceramic at Morris and Co,
then why not a nice entree dish,
something for your butler to serve the griddled kidneys on?
Open it up, it's got a nice silvered interior,
but underneath, the mark is that of WASB,
which is William Arthur Smith Benson, another friend of Morris,
who deliberately set up his workshop in London
so that he'd be close to Morris and be able to supply his shop.
Well, that's enough of our shopping.
Why don't we find out right now how our contestants' shopping fares over at the auction?
Well, it's grand to be at Great Western Auctions in Glasgow
with our great auctioneer, Anita Manning.
-Lovely to be here.
For our Red Team, Marcelle and Debbie,
they've gone to start off with two little piggies.
Are they any good, these pigs?
Well, there are plenty of collectors for Beswick animals.
And they will like these in particular
because they are designed by Arthur Greddington.
One of them is better than the other.
Wall Boy Champion, the white one, will be highly sought-after.
-How much, then?
-I've put £50-£80.
£40 paid, they'll be pleased with that.
Now, the GPO resistance box.
Well, it doesn't press any of my buttons,
but it is a wonderful piece of Glasgow Engineering.
But from saleable point of view, well, over to you, really. How much?
I've put £40-£60 on it. They will like the Glasgow maker's name there.
Yes, of course they will. They paid £30.
Next is this very unusual and, I think,
utterly intriguing silver mounted leather belt.
I rather fancied that it had a suffragette connection
and it dates from about the 1870s
-so we're coming into that time.
-Well, it's difficult, isn't it, to place it?
For me, the shape of these intervening sections
look vaguely medieval.
It's an interesting object and it's very well made.
-What do you think it's worth?
-I've put £80-£120 on it.
Oh, good! They paid £65. There's a lot there, isn't there, for £65? I think you're quite right.
-We could be surprised by that, couldn't we?
-I hope so.
Depending on how it goes will depend on whether they need their bonus buy,
but let's go and have a look at it anyway.
Well, girls, you spent £135.
You gave your man - your man, Bobby -
£165 to go and find your bonus buy.
David, what did you find?
Something absolutely startling, and I hope you'll agree.
They like it.
Cut crystal... Silence, actually. That's worrying.
It's cut crystal, silver mounted,
and it's the sort of thing that, if you have on your table,
you would serve biscuits for cheese, you would put bonbons in it,
goodness knows what. And hallmarked all the way through.
How much did you pay for it?
I paid £100 exactly.
-But where else...
-And how much can we make on it?
I think there's a possible chance of making around £140.
I like it, I do like it. I'm worried about the price you paid, though.
-Have to think about that.
-It's not my style.
-Is it not?
I thought it would be cos it's so beautiful.
-OK, girls, have you got it?
You're not buying it, you're listening to pearls of wisdom.
He's predicting £40-£50 worth of profit on that. It's exciting.
But, for the viewers at home, let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about his box.
well, if that doesn't take the biscuit I don't know what does.
-There you go.
-Isn't that a lovely object?
-Isn't that nice?
A biscuit barrel or serving casket, whatever,
with this marvellous ribbed detail here.
Silver, perfect hinge, but I absolutely adore these handles
-which don't quite come to the body of the barrel.
It's a strange thing, isn't it? Because that's 1909,
it isn't Art Deco yet,
but yet the shape and form of it sort of predicts Art Deco.
-I would say an item of quality, some quality.
-What's your estimate?
I reckon, if anybody fell in love with that, you'll get £200 for it no trouble at all.
How about that for a prediction? Anyway, that's it for the Reds. Now for the blues.
D and G, Daniel and Gordon,
went with the little condiments in silver.
How do you rate those?
Well, they're pretty standard fare, really.
But they are hallmarked silver. They're from 1901.
It has a little dent there, not too worried about that.
But not worth a lot of money.
-I would have said £20-£30.
20-30 and £20 paid. That's fine.
-Next up is the nice little combo of gold.
That's good, isn't it?
So we've got the swizzle stick,
nice little toothpick
and the cheroot piercer.
Perfect little item for Bertie Wooster - a man of style and some property.
All in nine carat gold. And gold is hot just now.
-How do you rate that money-wise?
-Well, they paid £260.
-I bet they get away with it, don't you?
-I think they might.
-I bet they will.
Now, their last item is this slightly sad tea strainer.
Well, it's a pretty standard piece of silver.
But there is a wee bit of damage there.
-This is rather nice, this embossed work on the rim.
I mean, it's got no stand, it's got some damage. How much do you think?
I put £20-£40. I hope I might push it on.
Well, they only paid £16, in fairness,
so they'll not be too far off.
I don't think that they're necessarily going to need
the bonus buy, but let's go and have a look at it anyway.
OK, Danny, Gordy, you gave him £4, poor bloke.
You didn't get a lot of choices there, did you?
What did you find for £4?
It was very hard. It really was so, so hard.
-So I bought a very, very nice Edinburgh silver napkin ring.
-What, solid silver?
-This is solid silver.
-How much did you spend?
-I can't believe that!
-It just shows there are bargains still to be had.
Two teddy bears, guys. It reflects our camaraderie.
It is Edinburgh hallmarked with the city Castle mark.
And it's almost brand new.
But it's in its presentation case, it's solid silver...
It just shows, if you dig hard, you dig deep,
you unearth, you can find it.
And this was £4. What d'you think about that, Gordy?
I think it's great. For £4, I was not expecting anything silver.
What about you, Dan?
Brilliant. Absolutely fantastic.
If this doesn't make £10 to £15, and perhaps a bit more,
I'll be amazed.
We're proud of you, Carlos. That's very, very nice.
Anyway, the big question is,
will the auctioneer be as proud of Charles?
You ready for this, baby?
Well, some people are potty about teddy bears,
and this would be the ideal thing for them.
It is hallmarked silver, Edinburgh silver, so that's good.
If you want to give a christening present,
it's got a little teddy on it for the little baby
and I can't think of anything better. How much then?
20 to 40.
It deserves £20 at least, don't you think?
Can you believe that Charles Hanson found that for £4?
Oh, he's a clever boy.
Isn't he a clever boy?
He's not such a baby himself, you know.
Are you taking the sale today?
Good. We're in safe hands.
Now, Marcel and Debbie, how are you feeling?
We just want to win.
So, first up are your Beswick items,
and who knows, pigs might fly.
139, two Beswick pigs, to include Wall Champion Boy
and one other example.
Go, pigs! Go, pigs!
£50? Start me at 20? 20 bid.

On the phone at £60. £60 on the phone.
I'll buy you a bacon butty at the end of the show.
Any advance on £60? Any advance on £60?
That is brilliant.
Plus £20 is a profit.
Good girl. I don't think you should buy a bacon butty.
Ladies and gentlemen...
Next is the GPO box.
A GPO resistance testing box in oak case,
manufactured by WB Nicholson of Glasgow, circa 1935.

Plus £15 on that, that's very nice, thank you.
20, 30, plus £45. You are £45 up.
You're going to be banking £45.
Just depending on whether you're going to go with the bonus buy or not?
THEY SPEAK IN NATIVE TONGUE
What does that mean in...?
What are you going to do?
We'll go for it.
Yeah? You're going With your mate?
She owes me £45.
We're going with it. Decision made?
We're going with the bonus buy and we're going to sell it.

Edwardian cut crystal silver serving casket,
hallmarked Birmingham, 1909.

Look at that. He gets his hug. And quite rightly so.
There we go, high risk policy.
You just paid yourself back, which is lovely.
You are plus £55. Don't say a word to the blues.
-Not a word. Well done, girls.
Gordy, I think you've grown.
-Are you getting taller, what's happening?
-I'm jumping about.
Jumping up a bit? I'm feeling a bit of a squit here.
Anyway, do you regret buying anything, Gordon,
that you'd like to swap and get rid of?
-What about you, Dan?
-No, nothing at all. Happy to go for it.
-You're rock solid?
-Rock solid, fingers crossed.
Anyway, your first item up are the salt and pepper pots,
here they come.
A pair of George V silver baluster-shaped
salt and pepper pots.
Come on, somebody go in.

£70, any advance on 70?
-You paid 20.
At £70, £70...
-£70 is plus £50, how do you do this?
Plus £50, straight up.
162, it's George V nine-carat gold swizzle stick,
a toothpick and a cigar cutter.
Every fine gentleman should have one of these. Start me at 200.
150 then. 150.
This is not looking so good.
150, 130 I'll take. £130.
140, 150, 160,
170, 180, 190.

-One more we need, we need one more, come on.
Any advance on 250?
Any advance on 250?
Any advance on £260?
All done at 260, 260...
-Yes! You wiped your face. That's a relief.
Wiped your face, lads.
-All right? You are still plus 50 up.
Lot 163 is the early 20th century silver tea strainer
with the embossed rim and ebonised handle
and I can start the bidding at...
-You're in profit.
-Come on, let's go.
Any advance on 30? It's with me at £30. Any advance on 30? 35?
Any advance on 35, all done at 35, 35...
Four off 20, that is plus £19 so that's very nice plus £69.
-£69, all right, boys?
-How about that?
We're going with the serviette ring, right? No-brainer on that?
We've got to go for it. It's only £4.
We're definitely doing that, Charles. We think you're brilliant.
So we're going with the serviette ring, here it comes.
167 is this perfect wee present,
it has these lovely little embossed teddies.
Start me at £20. 20, surely
for the silver napkin ring with teddies.
-£10, then 10 bid.
-Any advance on 10?
15, 20. With you, sir, at £20.
Any advance at £20, all done at £20, £20...
-£20 is very nice, that's plus 16.
-You are plus 85.
-That is what you call a result.
Well, what a happy programme we've had today.
Each of the teams are substantially in profit.
So the difference is just the scale of the winnings
and the runners up today who run up, simply because
-they've managed to win £55, are the Reds.
-Oh! Well done.
-There's your £55.
And of course as you made a profit
on each of your three items, you're entitled
to the Golden Gavel which rarely gets presented but it is today,
which is really rather lovely, which you're able to wear
with pride. And turning to the victors today,
the Blues, who are going home with £85 of profit.
-Which is pretty good, isn't it?
Here you go, Daniel, here's your £85.
You got two profits and a wiped face which is so close
to Golden Gavel territory that we're going to
present it to you in any event.
-You are the victors and you'll also get your Golden Gavel pin.
-Have you had a great time?
-Great time, the Reds?
-Join us soon for some more bargain hunting, yes?
