Bargain Hunt today comes from Warwickshire,

0:00:050:00:08

birthplace of the Hackney carriage,

0:00:080:00:10

and where today the iconic London taxi cab is still assembled.

0:00:100:00:15

I'm off to an antique and collectors fair at the British Motor Museum.

0:00:160:00:20

So, driver, as fast as you can, please!

0:00:200:00:22

Let's go Bargain Hunting!

0:00:250:00:27

There's plenty to see at the motor museum,

0:00:490:00:51

but it's upstairs that I'll find today's action.

0:00:510:00:54

With 100 stalls offering vintage, collectable and quirky items,

0:00:560:01:00

our teams certainly won't be short of things to choose from.

0:01:000:01:03

They have £300 and just one hour in which to buy three items

0:01:030:01:09

to take off to auction. Now,

0:01:090:01:11

let's hope there's not too much backfiring on today's programme.

0:01:110:01:14

Let's have a look at the road ahead.

0:01:140:01:16

'On today's show, it's sanitary insanity for the Reds...'

0:01:190:01:22

-What's this thing here?

-Oh, that, madam, is a bidet.

0:01:220:01:26

Oh, is it? I thought it was a baby bath!

0:01:260:01:28

'..while the Blues are turbo-charged.'

0:01:300:01:32

-You're racing away, you two.

-Yeah!

-We said we'd hit the ground.

0:01:320:01:34

-We're on the ball.

-You are on the ball.

0:01:340:01:38

'But at the auction, it's surprises all round.'

0:01:380:01:41

-Yeah!

-Thomas, while I remember...

0:01:410:01:44

But that's all for later. Now, let's meet today's teams.

0:01:440:01:46

We've got two pairs of friends.

0:01:460:01:48

For the Reds we have Lynne and Glenys

0:01:480:01:50

and for the Blues, Richard and Julia.

0:01:500:01:53

-Hello. ALL:

-Hello!

0:01:530:01:55

Crikey! Oh, my word.

0:01:550:01:56

-You're looking forward to this, aren't you?

-Yes!

-Definitely.

0:01:560:01:58

-And so are you, girls.

-Very excited.

-Very excited.

0:01:580:02:00

-Are you competitive? BOTH:

-Very competitive.

0:02:000:02:02

-Very competitive?

-Yes.

0:02:020:02:04

-I suppose you ought to be - you're both golfers, aren't you?

-We are.

0:02:040:02:07

-Who is the better golfer?

-Lynne.

0:02:070:02:09

-You were captain once.

-I'm lady captain now, yeah.

-Wonderful.

0:02:090:02:12

You're more the social secretary, I expect.

0:02:120:02:14

No, no, I'm just the drinker.

0:02:140:02:17

That's what I call a social secretary.

0:02:170:02:20

Very good! You're a bit of a competition winner, aren't you?

0:02:200:02:23

I am. Yeah, I used to do loads of competitions, mainly on the radio.

0:02:230:02:26

-Yeah.

-My biggest win was a car.

0:02:260:02:27

-You won a car?!

-I did.

0:02:270:02:29

I had to kiss this car for hours.

0:02:290:02:32

-Kiss it?!

-Kiss it with my lips on the car and my nose could touch,

0:02:320:02:37

-but nothing else.

-How exhausting.

0:02:370:02:38

Very tiring and in between you'd answer questions and at the end

0:02:380:02:41

the question was, how long in inches is the car?

0:02:410:02:45

-So I wrote down 144.5 inches or something...

-Yeah.

0:02:450:02:49

..and, erm, won. Exactly right.

0:02:490:02:52

Fantastic.

0:02:520:02:53

Now, Glenys, you're not quite as straightforward as that, are you?

0:02:530:02:56

-You're a bit of a rebel, aren't you?

-Slightly.

0:02:560:02:59

What do you mean slightly?

0:02:590:03:00

-Well, when I was 20...

-Yes! THEY LAUGH

0:03:000:03:03

..I decided I wanted to go and live in America...

0:03:030:03:06

-As you do.

-As you do.

0:03:060:03:07

..so I applied to the American Embassy and when I got the form

0:03:070:03:12

I thought, there's no way my mother or father will sign this,

0:03:120:03:14

-so I forged my mother's signature.

-THEY GASP

0:03:140:03:17

I don't think she knows to this day.

0:03:170:03:19

Then I finished up in San Francisco and went to the last Beatles concert

0:03:190:03:23

in Candlestick Park on 29th August, 1966.

0:03:230:03:28

-Have you still got the ticket?

-I still have the ticket, yes.

0:03:280:03:30

-Oh, that would be worth a few bob.

-Well, I don't know.

0:03:300:03:32

-Priceless to you, of course.

-Yes, absolutely. I'd never sell it.

0:03:320:03:35

So what about antiques, girls? Will you be spending big or small?

0:03:350:03:38

-I think we'll be moderate.

-Yes.

0:03:380:03:40

-Moderate.

-Mmm.

-And leave a little bit for your expert.

-Yes.

0:03:400:03:43

-Thank you very much indeed, girls.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:03:430:03:45

Onto the Blue team - Richard and Julia.

0:03:450:03:47

-How long have you known each other?

-About 14 years now.

-Wonderful.

0:03:470:03:51

-Richard, you're recently retired.

-Yes, I am. Unbelievable, isn't it?

0:03:510:03:54

THEY LAUGH

0:03:540:03:56

I can't possibly imagine anybody so young being retired.

0:03:560:04:00

Yes, I recently retired from...

0:04:000:04:01

I was a health improvement specialist

0:04:010:04:04

-and I managed a Stop Smoking service team.

-Oh, brilliant.

0:04:040:04:07

But you didn't start in that line, did you?

0:04:070:04:09

No, I didn't. I did acting.

0:04:090:04:11

-Acting?

-Yes.

-You met someone quite famous...

0:04:110:04:15

Yes, when I left drama school I did a BBC film called Nancy Astor

0:04:150:04:20

in 1982 and played a porter in a hotel.

0:04:200:04:23

And my scene was in this hotel.

0:04:230:04:26

There was a big sweeping staircase and I had to go

0:04:260:04:29

-follow Pierce Brosnan up the staircase.

-Did you?

0:04:290:04:33

And I was carrying his cases and when I got halfway up,

0:04:330:04:36

he turned to me and obviously said something and off I went.

0:04:360:04:38

-Don't you remember what he said?

-No.

0:04:380:04:41

-Shame.

-He probably said I was wonderful.

0:04:410:04:44

THEY LAUGH

0:04:440:04:46

-It made the difference.

-Yes!

-Exactly.

0:04:460:04:49

-He's done quite well, hasn't he?

-He hasn't done badly.

0:04:490:04:51

Now, Julia, what about you? What do you do with your life?

0:04:510:04:53

I work in a care home...

0:04:530:04:55

-Yeah?

-A nursing home. I'm in entertainment activities.

0:04:550:04:59

-Are you?

-So I try and cheer them up. I do a lot of singing,

0:04:590:05:03

I dress up and do silly things.

0:05:030:05:06

-What do you like singing?

-I sing a lot of old-time songs

0:05:060:05:10

from the wars - Pack Up Your Troubles, It's A Long Way To Tipperary.

0:05:100:05:15

TOGETHER: # Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag

0:05:150:05:19

# And smile, smile, smile. #

0:05:190:05:24

Thank you very much. Now, what about antiques?

0:05:250:05:28

-And tactics?

-Tactics is that we're going to go big

0:05:280:05:33

and also, we are not going to buy particular things that we like.

0:05:330:05:37

It's what we can make money out of.

0:05:370:05:38

Very good. Well, I've got money for you, which will come as a great,

0:05:380:05:43

great boost to you.

0:05:430:05:45

I like a man who gives me money.

0:05:450:05:47

Do you?

0:05:470:05:48

Well, off you go and have a great shop.

0:05:480:05:51

-Off you go.

-Can't wait!

0:05:510:05:52

Golfers versus thespians - pick a winner out of that lot.

0:05:550:05:58

On hand to help today, we have the fairest expert of them all,

0:06:000:06:04

it's Richard Madley for the Reds.

0:06:040:06:06

And hoping to make plenty of bread for the Blues, it's Thomas Plant.

0:06:070:06:12

Have we come out with a shopping list today?

0:06:120:06:15

On my shopping list I've got vintage handbags and vintage clothes,

0:06:150:06:18

-if possible.

-What about you, Richard?

0:06:180:06:20

I like china stuff but I'm also looking for something really different.

0:06:200:06:24

I'm partial to a bit of jewellery, the glittery the better.

0:06:240:06:28

I really love jewellery...

0:06:280:06:30

-Good.

-..so I'm going to look for that.

0:06:300:06:31

Right, teams, your time starts now.

0:06:310:06:35

WHISTLE TOOTS

0:06:350:06:36

I think I know where we'll start.

0:06:360:06:38

-Come with me.

-I want something that's going to scream out at me.

0:06:380:06:42

-To scream at you.

-Yes.

-Well, let's go and find it.

0:06:420:06:44

One hour to go.

0:06:440:06:46

-Yeah, OK.

-We need to go quicker.

0:06:460:06:48

Really?

0:06:480:06:49

Our Blues are off to a speedy start.

0:06:500:06:53

What have they set their sights on?

0:06:530:06:55

-Something like this.

-Oh, yes, we love the jelly moulds as well, don't we?

0:06:550:06:58

Is that 160, that jelly mould?

0:06:580:07:00

It probably is. It looks like a Victorian jelly mould.

0:07:000:07:03

-It's says, "Victorian copper jelly mould."

-Yeah.

0:07:030:07:05

I mean, that's lovely.

0:07:050:07:07

We certainly know it's a British Victorian one

0:07:070:07:09

because on the Continental ones and the later versions,

0:07:090:07:12

these ends are curled up, they're almost moulded up.

0:07:120:07:15

It might be made by Benham & Froud,

0:07:150:07:17

who were great jelly mould makers.

0:07:170:07:20

Looking at sort of 1850s, 1860s.

0:07:200:07:22

-Yes.

-But it is a lot of money, though, £160.

-Yes.

-Yes, I think so.

0:07:220:07:25

It's what we feel we make out of that.

0:07:250:07:27

-Yeah.

-What is the best on the jelly mould, please?

0:07:270:07:31

-160...

-That's the Victorian one...

0:07:310:07:32

-Yes.

-I could do 120.

0:07:320:07:35

At auction they're very popular.

0:07:350:07:36

I am going to be really cheeky and say it's worth £70 to £90.

0:07:360:07:40

-I was going to offer you 80.

-95, would that...?

0:07:400:07:43

That's... That's really as low as I can go.

0:07:430:07:46

What if we met you halfway, 90?

0:07:460:07:47

Yeah?

0:07:490:07:51

-OK.

-Do you want to go for it?

0:07:510:07:53

-Go for it!

-Do you want to do it?

-Yeah!

-I love that.

0:07:530:07:55

-Go on.

-Thank you very much.

0:07:550:07:57

-We're not going to muck about.

-Thank you, sir.

0:07:570:07:59

My word, first item seen is the first item bought.

0:07:590:08:02

That's one purchase down in just five minutes.

0:08:020:08:05

Meanwhile, has Richard found some haute couture?

0:08:050:08:08

Now, in here I spotted already some vintage clothing -

0:08:080:08:12

just what you had on your shopping list.

0:08:120:08:15

Fashion may be on the shopping list,

0:08:150:08:16

but will these bags pass the ladies' inspection?

0:08:160:08:19

No.

0:08:220:08:24

-No.

-No?

-No. That's a no.

-Right, OK.

0:08:240:08:27

Well, that was decisive. She knows what she wants, doesn't she?

0:08:270:08:29

Yes. She knows what I want.

0:08:290:08:32

THEY LAUGH

0:08:320:08:33

Time for a bit of a rethink on that shopping list.

0:08:330:08:36

I don't think it's really what we'd want to take to auction,

0:08:360:08:38

-if I'm honest.

-Vintage clothing is very specialised and it may be

0:08:380:08:42

the right label but if it's the wrong size, it doesn't fit,

0:08:420:08:45

so I'm glad that you've come to that conclusion early on

0:08:450:08:49

cos I'm rather with you.

0:08:490:08:50

So that leaves the Reds looking for glitzy jewellery.

0:08:520:08:56

What have the Blues found?

0:08:560:08:57

It makes a little bell noise, look.

0:08:570:09:00

-Yeah, he's got a little bell in.

-Yeah.

0:09:000:09:01

It's also like a Merrythought Cheeky bear,

0:09:010:09:03

cos they had little bells in them, but he doesn't...

0:09:030:09:05

-He's not straw-filled.

-Right.

-Right.

-Probably...

0:09:050:09:08

I wouldn't say he's older than 1960s...

0:09:100:09:12

-Oh, OK.

-..cos he's not straw-filled, do you see what I mean?

0:09:120:09:14

-But he has got plastic eyes.

-Oh, yes.

-In my opinion...

0:09:140:09:17

In my opinion, it's a no-go.

0:09:170:09:19

-No.

-Right, OK.

-Is that all right?

0:09:190:09:21

-That's fine.

-Yeah, that's fine. Thank you. Thank you.

0:09:210:09:24

Best move on, Blues.

0:09:240:09:26

Now, the Reds have a question for Richard.

0:09:260:09:28

-What's this thing here?

-That, madam, is a bidet.

0:09:280:09:32

Oh, is it?

0:09:320:09:34

-I thought it was a baby bath!

-THEY LAUGH

0:09:340:09:36

Could be.

0:09:360:09:38

OK, moving on...

0:09:380:09:40

Are the Blues still finding things they love?

0:09:400:09:42

This is lovely glassware,

0:09:420:09:43

it's really decorative and it's something different.

0:09:430:09:46

-Yes.

-So what you've got here is glass made by, I personally believe,

0:09:460:09:50

some of the greatest glass blowers in the late 20th century.

0:09:500:09:53

I rather like that one with the...

0:09:530:09:56

-This one here.

-What, with the birds?

0:09:560:09:58

-The flying birds.

-Yes.

-It's gorgeous, isn't it?

0:09:580:10:00

-It is.

-It's lovely.

0:10:000:10:01

-Just like a lead crystal. It's by Orrefors.

-And it's different.

0:10:010:10:04

-Yeah. It looks heavy.

-Pick it up. They are quite heavy.

0:10:040:10:07

Round here on the base it's got Orrefors and the designer is by

0:10:070:10:10

-somebody called...

-Oh, yes, that's well-known, isn't it, Orrefors?

0:10:100:10:13

Yeah, Orrefors is very well-known.

0:10:130:10:15

And PU, that's the name for Sven Palmqvist.

0:10:150:10:18

These are all unique pieces.

0:10:180:10:20

They're hand-blown.

0:10:200:10:21

-Yes.

-It's been polished out...

-Yes.

0:10:210:10:23

..lead crystal and later engraved with a diamond wheel

0:10:230:10:26

and what's beautiful about this glass

0:10:260:10:29

-is that you have these lovely cranes flying...

-That's really lovely.

0:10:290:10:34

It's flying in the reeds and you've got the reed behind there,

0:10:340:10:37

-haven't you?

-I like that.

0:10:370:10:38

-I really like it.

-They think about this, don't they?

0:10:380:10:40

There's almost like a sheen on it,

0:10:400:10:42

if you look at it, I love that effect it has.

0:10:420:10:45

-It's a good shape.

-Yeah.

-It's a really good design.

0:10:450:10:48

-Very sensual.

-Yeah, absolutely. A nice ovoid shape.

0:10:480:10:52

-Fantastic.

-I like it.

-I think that's a really nice piece.

0:10:520:10:54

-They are gorgeous.

-So the bottom dollar question is...

0:10:540:10:57

Yeah, it's £95 on here.

0:10:570:11:00

Right, what can he do?

0:11:000:11:03

-VENDOR:

-80 sound more interesting to you?

0:11:030:11:07

Could I squeeze you...?

0:11:070:11:09

Squeeze you to 75?

0:11:090:11:10

75. Yeah.

0:11:100:11:13

I think let's go for it.

0:11:130:11:15

I think so as well.

0:11:150:11:16

-Yeah, you want to do it at £75? Happy?

-Yeah.

-We have a sale.

0:11:160:11:19

-We have a sale.

-Great.

0:11:190:11:21

Two items bought and only 12 minutes into the shop.

0:11:210:11:24

You are racing away, you two.

0:11:240:11:25

-Yeah.

-We said we'd hit the ground running.

-We're on the ball.

0:11:250:11:28

You are on the ball. Come on.

0:11:280:11:30

Meanwhile, the Reds have bought nothing.

0:11:300:11:32

Will this thermometer change their luck?

0:11:320:11:34

Oh, that actually is wonderful.

0:11:340:11:36

That's Negretti & Zambra.

0:11:360:11:39

Good makers, good Victorian makers.

0:11:390:11:42

And this does...

0:11:420:11:44

-Close.

-I think possibly for a greenhouse.

0:11:440:11:46

-And how old would that be?

-This is 19th century.

0:11:460:11:49

They were indeed eminent Victorian scientific and instrument makers.

0:11:500:11:56

So when you see their name, it is synonymous with quality.

0:11:560:11:59

The white enamel dial looks in great shape to me.

0:11:590:12:03

-So, is this the sort of thing you'd like to buy?

-Yeah, I like it.

0:12:030:12:06

-Because it's unusual?

-Yeah.

-Because it's unusual.

0:12:060:12:08

Right, well, the ticket price is £85.

0:12:080:12:12

I will do it for £60.

0:12:120:12:14

Right, I would think that the auctioneer will put an estimate

0:12:140:12:19

on this between £50 and £70.

0:12:190:12:22

I think there could be a modest profit in it.

0:12:220:12:26

Is 60 your best price or can you help us out?

0:12:260:12:28

Well, I am struggling to get down as low...

0:12:280:12:31

I mean, I'll do 55, if that's any help.

0:12:310:12:33

-It certainly... It certainly does help, doesn't it?

-Yeah.

0:12:330:12:37

So, are you happy?

0:12:370:12:38

-I am really happy.

-I'm really happy. I like it.

-I would buy it.

0:12:380:12:41

-Yeah.

-You would?

0:12:410:12:43

-There we go.

-You might have to!

0:12:430:12:45

We're just about to.

0:12:450:12:46

In that case, we'll consider it sold.

0:12:470:12:50

Thank you very much.

0:12:500:12:51

Thank you.

0:12:510:12:53

Well done, ladies. That's your first item in the bag.

0:12:530:12:55

Now, are the Blues still motoring along?

0:12:550:12:58

-Anything on here you like?

-Nothing grabs me.

-No.

0:12:580:13:02

How's it going, Thomas?

0:13:020:13:03

They are clear, they are decisive, they make strong decisions.

0:13:030:13:07

They do not mess about.

0:13:080:13:10

-What am I going to do?!

-Maybe make a profit, Thomas.

0:13:100:13:14

Now, what are those Reds looking at?

0:13:140:13:16

I do like diamonds but I don't think I'll be able to find them with the

0:13:160:13:19

-money we've got.

-I like your taste.

0:13:190:13:21

I like your taste.

0:13:210:13:23

Our budget, however, is more diamante than diamonds.

0:13:230:13:27

That's pretty.

0:13:290:13:30

I have to say, with all due respect,

0:13:300:13:33

there is nothing that's really catching my eye.

0:13:330:13:35

-Nothing that's saying, "Buy me." That's all right.

-No, there really isn't.

0:13:350:13:38

Let's keep moving because the clock is ticking.

0:13:380:13:40

-Thank you very much indeed.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

-Let's keep going.

0:13:400:13:43

Here we go, onto the next one.

0:13:430:13:45

It wasn't just the Reds looking for sparkles.

0:13:450:13:48

Will the Blues have more success?

0:13:480:13:50

It's silver marcasite.

0:13:500:13:53

-Oh, I love marcasite.

-Marcasite with a paste stone in there.

0:13:530:13:57

It is continental, from France.

0:13:570:13:59

I was going to say Germany but it's French.

0:13:590:14:02

French silver. Now, you've got a couple of marcasites missing here.

0:14:020:14:06

-OK.

-Not the end of the world to put back.

-How old would you reckon?

0:14:060:14:10

This is early 20th century.

0:14:100:14:11

OK. What's the price?

0:14:110:14:13

The price is...

0:14:130:14:15

£85.

0:14:150:14:16

-Is it something we can think about and come back to maybe?

-Yeah.

0:14:160:14:19

The only thing that concerns me is because there's a couple

0:14:190:14:21

of things that need repairing,

0:14:210:14:23

I think that's a bit high for something you need to put

0:14:230:14:26

a bit of marcasite in. But I do like it.

0:14:260:14:28

It's worth looking at because I knew you wanted to look at jewellery.

0:14:280:14:30

Yes.

0:14:300:14:32

Jewellery just isn't working for our teams today,

0:14:320:14:34

so what is turning their heads?

0:14:340:14:36

-I like that.

-Oh, yeah.

0:14:360:14:38

-That's different.

-It's a gramophone.

0:14:380:14:40

I'd love a gramophone.

0:14:400:14:42

Well, it's Old Man River who's on the turntable.

0:14:420:14:44

And it's made by Apollo.

0:14:460:14:48

Is there a price ticket on it?

0:14:480:14:50

No price ticket on it, so therefore we are in the hands of the owner.

0:14:500:14:54

Sir, a few questions about your oak gramophone by the Apollo company.

0:14:540:15:00

-Yes?

-What sort of age are you thinking it probably dates from?

0:15:000:15:05

It's about 60 to 70 years old.

0:15:050:15:07

It's not a great age but the benefit is it's oak.

0:15:070:15:11

Like I said, it is very, very rare to find an oak gramophone.

0:15:110:15:14

Yeah, indeed. A light oak as well.

0:15:140:15:16

So, there's a nice look to it.

0:15:170:15:19

What's the inside? Is that just the speaker inside?

0:15:190:15:22

That's actually the speakers.

0:15:220:15:23

If you don't want it too loud, all you do is close the doors,

0:15:230:15:26

but if you want to hear it - and it's a huge difference -

0:15:260:15:29

open the doors and it just... It flows out.

0:15:290:15:32

-Does it still work?

-Yes, of course it works, yes.

0:15:320:15:35

The big question is, how much is it?

0:15:350:15:38

-Take a seat.

-RICHARD LAUGHS

0:15:380:15:40

175.

0:15:410:15:42

175.

0:15:430:15:46

It's a lot of money.

0:15:460:15:47

What could you come down to, realistically?

0:15:470:15:50

140.

0:15:500:15:51

140.

0:15:510:15:53

And at auction, what do you think we could get for it?

0:15:530:15:55

-Erm...

-Would that be as much as we could get for it?

0:15:550:15:58

I think that would be at the top end.

0:15:580:16:00

We would need to buy this closer to £100 than anything else.

0:16:000:16:07

Is that way out of what you can afford to let it go for?

0:16:070:16:10

Can I sit down now?!

0:16:100:16:11

What did I say, 140?

0:16:130:16:15

-Yes.

-You said 140.

0:16:150:16:17

We were looking to make a profit at auction at around the 100 mark.

0:16:170:16:22

Yes.

0:16:250:16:27

£100. And, yes, why not?

0:16:270:16:30

That's a generous discount.

0:16:300:16:31

So, is it a yes from you?

0:16:310:16:33

-Yes, it's a yes from me.

-Is it a yes from you?

0:16:330:16:35

-Yes.

-In that case, consider it sold.

-Thank you so much.

0:16:350:16:39

Thank you very much.

0:16:390:16:40

-Thank you very much.

-We'll shake on it.

0:16:400:16:42

A great deal and a happy team.

0:16:420:16:44

With both teams two items down,

0:16:440:16:47

I'm going to leave them shopping and go to find something dinky.

0:16:470:16:51

This museum has a myriad of motoring delights.

0:16:590:17:02

The cost of some vintage cars is staggering,

0:17:020:17:05

but not all vintage cars.

0:17:050:17:08

If you're willing to downsize...

0:17:080:17:10

there's something for everyone.

0:17:100:17:12

I'm joined by Lance Quigley,

0:17:140:17:16

a dealer who specialises in die-cast model cars.

0:17:160:17:19

How did you get into it, Lance?

0:17:190:17:21

Well, being the youngest of five, I had a lot of hand-me-downs.

0:17:210:17:26

-Oh, right.

-There was no electronic games in those days.

0:17:260:17:28

-No, no.

-So, while my brothers were at school,

0:17:280:17:31

I would take them out in the garden and bury them.

0:17:310:17:34

-Hide them from them!

-Yes.

0:17:340:17:36

You've got some super ones. There's one here that springs to mind -

0:17:360:17:39

the Jaguar 3.4,

0:17:390:17:41

-which of course was made just down the road...

-That's right.

0:17:410:17:44

An iconic car of the '60s.

0:17:440:17:46

What sort of value are we talking about here? This one?

0:17:460:17:48

-15 to 20.

-And this one?

0:17:480:17:50

-150.

-Really? £150?

0:17:500:17:53

-Yes.

-Quite a difference, isn't there?

-Yep.

0:17:530:17:56

-Is that because of the condition of it?

-Yes.

0:17:560:17:59

To fetch top price,

0:17:590:18:01

they've got to be mint and the box is just as important.

0:18:010:18:03

The box has got to be crisp and fresh.

0:18:030:18:06

I mean, a mint model is worth nothing really

0:18:060:18:09

-unless it's got the mint box with it.

-Right.

0:18:090:18:11

So do people make the boxes now?

0:18:110:18:13

You can get repro boxes.

0:18:130:18:14

-Can you?

-Yes, yes, which I'm not against.

0:18:140:18:17

-No.

-But you can tell the difference.

0:18:170:18:19

Here we have a repro box and just look at the colours, they're sharp,

0:18:190:18:23

the edges are crisp.

0:18:230:18:25

I mean, that's meant to be 55 years old.

0:18:250:18:28

-CHARLIE LAUGHS

-It hasn't got patina.

-It hasn't.

0:18:280:18:31

-You'd need to look carefully, wouldn't you?

-Yes.

0:18:310:18:33

Another tip is open the box and smell inside.

0:18:330:18:36

It should smell that musty smell of old paint.

0:18:360:18:39

Not musty there, fresh cardboard.

0:18:410:18:42

-That's fresh cardboard.

-I'm getting fresh cardboard here.

0:18:420:18:45

It's like wine, isn't it? That's a really,

0:18:450:18:48

really good tip because I didn't know they made reproduction boxes.

0:18:480:18:51

Yeah, very popular, actually.

0:18:510:18:53

Presumably this is an older box because it's got tears and things.

0:18:530:18:58

-Anything else we can tell about it?

-Yeah, in those days,

0:18:580:19:00

the shopkeeper would walk around with a pencil behind his ear

0:19:000:19:03

and put the pencil price on the end...

0:19:030:19:05

-Yes.

-Oh, it has. "Eight shillings and 11 pence."

0:19:060:19:10

That's about 44p.

0:19:100:19:11

How much could a Dinky Toy be worth?

0:19:130:19:15

They have sold in excess of 30,000.

0:19:150:19:18

£30,000?!

0:19:180:19:19

-Yes.

-That is quite extraordinary.

0:19:190:19:21

It is, yes.

0:19:210:19:22

Boxes are important, condition is important.

0:19:220:19:25

If we take this car here, which looks absolutely mint,

0:19:250:19:29

what's it worth without the box?

0:19:290:19:32

150.

0:19:320:19:33

£150?

0:19:330:19:35

-With the box?

-250.

0:19:350:19:37

Gosh. My word, you've taught me some things here.

0:19:370:19:40

-Lance, thank you very much.

-Thank you, Charlie.

0:19:400:19:42

-You're welcome.

-I'm going to look round the fair now

0:19:420:19:44

and see if I can find some Dinky Toys with their boxes!

0:19:440:19:47

Back to the fair and we're halfway through the shopping.

0:19:560:19:58

Both teams have still to find their last item.

0:19:580:20:02

How are the Blues doing?

0:20:020:20:03

I'd give them a...seven!

0:20:030:20:06

What do they think?

0:20:060:20:07

I think we're doing really well.

0:20:070:20:09

Really good items so far.

0:20:090:20:10

-Yeah.

-I think we've made great progress.

0:20:100:20:13

So I think we're looking now for something different again.

0:20:130:20:17

I'm interested in jewellery still, and silver.

0:20:170:20:20

I think I'd like to look at either of those.

0:20:200:20:22

-It's got to be something different.

-Yeah.

0:20:220:20:25

So the Blues know what they do want. How about the Reds?

0:20:250:20:28

We're doing all right. We're having a little look

0:20:280:20:30

but we haven't seen anything we really want to buy yet.

0:20:300:20:33

-Right, OK.

-We really would like to get some silver.

0:20:330:20:36

Yeah, I think it would be nice to get some silver so at least we could

0:20:360:20:38

tick one item off our shopping list.

0:20:380:20:41

Both teams are looking out for silver.

0:20:420:20:45

Will they find that final piece?

0:20:450:20:47

I like that edging of it, that sort of scallop edging.

0:20:470:20:51

"80978."

0:20:510:20:53

-Let's get Tom in.

-I think we'll ask him.

0:20:530:20:55

-Tom, would you have a look at this?

-What do you think?

-What do you think?

0:20:550:20:58

So you've found a little silver box.

0:20:580:21:00

-Jewellery, I'd suppose is it?

-Well, it's a jewellery box.

0:21:000:21:02

Yeah, a little trinket box for your table.

0:21:020:21:04

-Victorian.

-Yeah.

0:21:040:21:06

I've just seen the price - £128.

0:21:070:21:09

A bit high, do you think?

0:21:090:21:10

That's quite a lot of money, that, and the hinge is a bit bent.

0:21:100:21:13

The most important thing about these things is if you hold it up to the

0:21:130:21:16

light, you can see holes in it where it's been over-polished.

0:21:160:21:21

-Ahh.

-Can you see that?

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:21:210:21:24

-So, it's a little bit...

-You're paying £128 for a piece of silver

0:21:240:21:27

-with some holes in it.

-Yeah, it's a lot. Yeah.

0:21:270:21:29

So that's a no then, Thomas.

0:21:290:21:31

Are the Reds having any more luck?

0:21:310:21:34

Well, you asked for silver, have I found you silver?

0:21:340:21:38

-You've found us silver, yeah. I like it.

-Vesta cases, serving spoons...

0:21:380:21:42

The silver card case,

0:21:420:21:44

I think that's lovely and it's hallmarked Birmingham

0:21:440:21:47

and I was born in Birmingham.

0:21:470:21:50

-OK, right.

-I rather like that.

0:21:500:21:53

So the silver visiting card case.

0:21:530:21:56

A lady or a gentleman would keep their calling cards there,

0:21:560:21:59

which you would leave, "Here is my name and my address."

0:21:590:22:02

The most important test is to check the hinge.

0:22:020:22:07

I'm just going to give it a little wiggle and this is a good hinge.

0:22:070:22:11

The marks show the maker, who is George Loveridge, a small worker.

0:22:110:22:17

That doesn't mean that he was under 5ft 6,

0:22:170:22:19

it means he specialised in making small pieces of silver

0:22:190:22:23

and the date letter shows it was made in 1905.

0:22:230:22:27

And it's got this vacant cartouche.

0:22:270:22:31

Originally the owner, the original owner, could have...

0:22:310:22:34

But they left it open and that I think is a nice touch -

0:22:340:22:36

it still could be engraved.

0:22:360:22:38

£85 they want.

0:22:380:22:40

How much lower than that do you think we should actually try to aim

0:22:400:22:44

for to make a profit?

0:22:440:22:46

The auctioneer might price it at...

0:22:460:22:49

..£40 to £60.

0:22:500:22:53

85 is at the upper end of its value.

0:22:530:22:57

I'd like to ask the owner, he is the best person to speak to, is he not?

0:22:570:23:01

-Absolutely.

-So shall we ask him?

0:23:010:23:02

-Yes, please.

-Sir.

0:23:020:23:04

-Yes, sir?

-I think you know what we're going to ask you.

0:23:040:23:07

I do, indeed. I know the question's coming.

0:23:070:23:09

If we could buy it at around the £60 mark,

0:23:090:23:12

I think we'll be in the market.

0:23:120:23:14

60's pushing it a tad.

0:23:140:23:16

Could I say 65?

0:23:180:23:20

-Would that do it for you?

-Well, we're there or thereabouts,

0:23:200:23:23

aren't we? It ticks our third and final box.

0:23:230:23:26

So I think for a five pound note, shall we buy it?

0:23:260:23:29

-Yes.

-I think so.

-Thank you, that's really kind of you.

0:23:290:23:31

-Thank you.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:23:310:23:33

Sold. That's it. That is it.

0:23:330:23:36

Finally, a silver buy.

0:23:360:23:38

So the Reds are all done with 20 minutes to spare.

0:23:380:23:42

Now, the Blues started fast but it looks like a slower finish.

0:23:420:23:46

Tom, I thought watches go pretty well.

0:23:460:23:49

They do go quite well.

0:23:490:23:50

This is a lady's watch. This watch might be worn but it's too small.

0:23:500:23:55

Do you wear a watch, Julia?

0:23:550:23:56

-Yes.

-Look at the size of your watch.

0:23:560:23:58

-Yeah, but...

-Yeah, but what?

0:23:580:24:00

-Yeah, but what?

-Yeah,

0:24:000:24:02

but no... I like big watches!

0:24:020:24:03

Therein...

0:24:040:24:06

says it all.

0:24:060:24:08

Girls these days like you won't be wearing a little small watch.

0:24:080:24:14

-OK.

-Let's go.

-We'll follow you.

0:24:140:24:16

The Blues need to keep hunting.

0:24:170:24:19

Meanwhile, the Reds are relaxing.

0:24:190:24:21

Shall I be Mum? We've spent far more than we really planned to.

0:24:210:24:25

Yes, indeed. I think you came out with a plan of not spending

0:24:250:24:29

very much but you are the original big spenders.

0:24:290:24:33

-We are.

-Cheers.

-BOTH:

-Cheers!

0:24:330:24:35

While the Reds toast tearing up a plan,

0:24:370:24:39

are the Blues sticking to theirs?

0:24:390:24:41

-There is something in here I quite like.

-Yes.

-It's a bit of silver.

0:24:410:24:45

-I like that.

-Can I get it out?

0:24:450:24:46

Guys, what we've got is a silver dish but what is on the centre

0:24:470:24:52

-of the silver dish?

-I like that.

-What's on the centre?

0:24:520:24:54

-A design.

-I can see a face.

-Yeah, there's a lady's face.

0:24:540:24:58

-Oh, the spades.

-Oh, yes, it's Queen of Spades.

0:24:580:25:01

Is it for cards or...?

0:25:020:25:03

What is it for?

0:25:030:25:04

This is the kind of thing which if you are a bridge player, you want.

0:25:040:25:10

There is a lot of bridge players.

0:25:100:25:11

There are a lot of bridge players out there.

0:25:110:25:13

It's by William Hutton & Sons, so it's Victorian, it's London, 1894.

0:25:130:25:18

-It's a nice age.

-A nice crimp...

0:25:180:25:20

I love that edging.

0:25:200:25:23

It's lovely, isn't it?

0:25:230:25:24

-Yeah.

-It's a good thing.

-A very nice piece.

0:25:240:25:26

A novelty piece of silver and it's the size of playing cards.

0:25:260:25:30

-This is quite cool for your pack of cards.

-Yes.

-Yeah.

0:25:300:25:34

What do you think about the price?

0:25:340:25:35

Well, I'm going to ask the gentleman what he can do.

0:25:350:25:37

What is the very best on your...?

0:25:370:25:40

-I can do 85.

-85.

0:25:410:25:44

I was hoping

0:25:440:25:46

for a bit more off.

0:25:460:25:48

Go on, 80.

0:25:480:25:50

A little bit more, something with a seven in front of it.

0:25:500:25:52

I was hoping for 75.

0:25:520:25:55

-Go on.

-Go on.

0:25:550:25:57

-75.

-£75? Do you want to buy it?

0:25:570:26:00

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Do you like it?

-Yes.

-I think it's great.

-Love it.

0:26:000:26:03

-I think it's good value.

-It is great value.

-Excellent.

0:26:030:26:06

With that, the cards are dealt and both teams are all shopped up.

0:26:060:26:10

BELL RINGS Stop looking, teams,

0:26:110:26:13

your time is up.

0:26:130:26:15

Now, let's have a look at what the Red team have bought.

0:26:150:26:18

First, will bids be hotting up for the thermometer?

0:26:200:26:24

Bought for £55.

0:26:240:26:25

Next, the gramophone cost £100 but will it put the saleroom in a spin?

0:26:270:26:31

Finally, their piece of silver, a card case that cost them £65.

0:26:340:26:38

Glenys and Lynne, seldom have I seen two young girls have such fun...

0:26:400:26:44

-We did.

-And it's nice being called young.

0:26:440:26:47

-That's a bonus!

-..and spend so much money

0:26:470:26:50

and still have time for a cup of tea.

0:26:500:26:52

-Yes.

-Absolutely.

-We bought strange and unusual but good items.

0:26:520:26:56

You bought good items, didn't you?

0:26:560:26:58

So what's your favourite lot?

0:26:580:27:00

Mine is the thermometer.

0:27:000:27:02

-And, Lynne, you?

-Mine is the gramophone.

0:27:020:27:04

Oh, well, why not?

0:27:040:27:06

-And didn't you do a good negotiating job?

-Yes.

0:27:060:27:08

What's going to make the biggest profit?

0:27:080:27:10

-I think the thermometer, probably.

-So do I.

0:27:100:27:13

-You both think the thermometer?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:27:130:27:15

Well, you spent £220.

0:27:150:27:16

-We did.

-It leaves £80.

0:27:160:27:18

-There it is.

-Come over to me very briefly before it goes to the maestro.

0:27:180:27:22

-Maestro.

-Thank you very much.

0:27:220:27:24

At one stage, I was worried you'd leave me nothing at all to spend

0:27:240:27:28

but luckily with £80,

0:27:280:27:30

I can go back and pick up something that you both walked past

0:27:300:27:34

and didn't notice, which I think will bring a smile to your face.

0:27:340:27:37

So while Richard goes off to bring a smile to the girls' faces,

0:27:370:27:41

we'll remind ourselves what the Blue team have bought.

0:27:410:27:46

First, they went all wobbly for the jelly mould and spent £90.

0:27:460:27:50

Then there was the Orrefors glass vase.

0:27:520:27:55

It cost £75.

0:27:550:27:56

Finally, also for £75, was their silver card tray.

0:27:590:28:03

Richard and Julia, that was a shop of two halves, wasn't it?

0:28:050:28:08

-Yep.

-Out of the traps like that,

0:28:080:28:11

ten minutes in it all went dead for half an hour.

0:28:110:28:13

We were so overwhelmed by how well we did.

0:28:130:28:16

It was buy, buy...

0:28:160:28:18

And then, "Do you know what? I'd like to view the fair."

0:28:180:28:23

What's your favourite lot, Julia?

0:28:230:28:25

My favourite is actually the jelly mould. I really like that.

0:28:250:28:29

The Swedish vase is lovely.

0:28:290:28:31

-Yeah.

-Beautiful piece.

0:28:310:28:32

What's going to make the biggest profit?

0:28:320:28:34

I think... Oh, I think we both think, don't we?

0:28:340:28:36

-Yes.

-The silver... With the card...

0:28:360:28:39

Like a card tray, yes.

0:28:390:28:41

-You always wanted to buy a bit of silver, didn't you?

-Yes.

-Exactly.

0:28:410:28:43

You spent £240 and you've got just £60 to give to this young man.

0:28:430:28:48

-Yes.

-Hand it over.

-There you are.

0:28:480:28:50

Thomas, you lucky fellow.

0:28:500:28:51

-What are you going to do with that?

-Something very old...

0:28:510:28:53

-Yeah.

-Something hard...

-Yes.

-..with a bit of metal on it.

0:28:530:28:56

-Yes.

-I think you'll quite like it.

0:28:560:28:59

-We hope.

-OK.

0:28:590:29:00

While Thomas goes off to buy something old and useful,

0:29:000:29:04

we're off to the auction.

0:29:040:29:05

Well, I'm very excited because I'm at Richard Winterton's saleroom.

0:29:120:29:14

-Hello.

-Hello, and welcome to Lichfield.

0:29:140:29:16

Thank you. Starting off with the Red team here, Lynne and Glenys.

0:29:160:29:21

The first item we've got is the thermometer.

0:29:210:29:23

What a great start. A lovely thing.

0:29:230:29:25

I love it, absolutely love it.

0:29:250:29:26

It's commercial...

0:29:260:29:28

-What are we, Edwardian period?

-Yes.

0:29:280:29:30

Great name to it.

0:29:300:29:32

-It's got everything going for it.

-Negretti & Zambra,

0:29:320:29:34

they made the best thermometers.

0:29:340:29:36

-Most certainly.

-What about an estimate?

0:29:360:29:39

-We've gone 20-40, Charlie.

-20-40, Richard?!

0:29:390:29:43

-It seems a bit mean.

-It does, when I'm looking at it now,

0:29:430:29:45

it is a bit mean but I think 20-40, it should fly.

0:29:450:29:48

I hope it does because they paid £55 for it.

0:29:480:29:51

-Yeah.

-They'll be all right though, won't they?

0:29:510:29:53

-Yeah, got to be.

-Jolly good.

0:29:530:29:54

What about the gramophone?

0:29:540:29:57

-You see a lot of these, don't you?

-Yeah, loads.

0:29:570:30:00

Records are starting to come back into fashion

0:30:000:30:04

and the retro sort of look.

0:30:040:30:06

Apollo, I don't think it's the Rolls-Royce of gramophones,

0:30:060:30:09

-as it were.

-No.

-And...

0:30:090:30:12

-No.

-It's 30-40 in my book.

0:30:120:30:15

They paid £100 for it.

0:30:150:30:18

-Yeah.

-I don't think Lynne and Glenys see as many of these gramophones

0:30:190:30:22

-as you and I do.

-No, we see a tremendous amount come through,

0:30:220:30:26

don't we?

0:30:260:30:27

Third item we've got is the little silver card case.

0:30:270:30:30

A standard sort of thing again.

0:30:300:30:31

We see a tremendous amount coming through. It's nice that it's silver.

0:30:310:30:34

-Nice little scrolls, nice little work on it.

-Yes.

0:30:340:30:37

It's 50-80.

0:30:370:30:39

They paid £65.

0:30:390:30:41

-That's smack in the middle of your estimate.

-I'm not surprised.

0:30:410:30:44

It's anybody's guess as to whether you're going to make them

0:30:440:30:46

a profit or not. In which case,

0:30:460:30:47

it's still anybody's guess as to whether they'll go with their bonus buy.

0:30:470:30:51

Let's have a look at it.

0:30:510:30:52

Lynne and Glenys, the anticipation.

0:30:540:30:57

-It's so exciting, isn't it?

-It's very exciting.

-Yes.

0:30:570:30:59

But you did at least spend most of your money.

0:30:590:31:01

But it wasn't ours.

0:31:010:31:03

-You still left this man with £80, didn't you?

-We did. Yes.

0:31:050:31:08

-We were very generous, I think.

-Are you confident with what he's done

0:31:080:31:10

-with it?

-I think so.

-Shall we find out?

0:31:100:31:13

-Yes.

-I bought you...

0:31:130:31:14

Oh! What's that, then?

0:31:160:31:18

An inkwell.

0:31:180:31:19

-Is it pewter?

-No, it's copper.

0:31:190:31:21

-Oh, right.

-Now, this is an Art Nouveau ink stand made roundabout

0:31:210:31:28

1910, 1920.

0:31:280:31:31

It's almost in between.

0:31:310:31:32

It's what the Germans call the Jugendstil - the young style.

0:31:320:31:37

So this would have sat in an elegant Viennese apartment on the desk of a

0:31:370:31:42

prominent gentleman and it is the style that is very collected today.

0:31:420:31:47

So how much did you spend?

0:31:470:31:48

I bought it for 40.

0:31:480:31:50

Wow, that's good.

0:31:500:31:52

What do you think it has the potential to make?

0:31:520:31:54

It's got the potential to make you another £10 or £20.

0:31:540:31:58

-That sounds good.

-What do you think, girls?

0:31:580:32:00

-I really like it.

-I quite like it.

0:32:000:32:03

You don't have to make up your mind now.

0:32:030:32:05

We've got one like it, one...

0:32:050:32:06

-Quite like it.

-..almost like it.

0:32:060:32:08

What will the auctioneer think about it?

0:32:080:32:11

Well, here it is - Richard's bonus buy.

0:32:120:32:14

What a beauty.

0:32:150:32:17

It's full of interest.

0:32:170:32:18

I love it, and the colour of it as well.

0:32:180:32:21

It's got a bit of Scottish influence in there.

0:32:210:32:23

Yeah, it's a nice thing.

0:32:230:32:26

-Lovely colours.

-Yeah.

0:32:260:32:27

It's almost a mixture between the Deco and the Nouveau, isn't it?

0:32:270:32:30

-It is.

-It's a blending of the styles, which I like.

0:32:300:32:33

-It's roundabout that 1900 date, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:32:330:32:36

-Value?

-30-50.

0:32:360:32:38

Well, Richard paid £40.

0:32:380:32:40

-Very good.

-It'll be interesting to see whether they go with it.

0:32:400:32:45

Anyway, now onto Richard and Julia, another pair of friends,

0:32:450:32:48

the Blue team, who kicked off with the Victorian copper jelly mould.

0:32:480:32:53

A good old jelly mould!

0:32:530:32:55

Again, you see a few of those, don't you?

0:32:550:32:57

We do and they used to be really popular, didn't they?

0:32:570:33:00

The Americans bought them, didn't they?

0:33:000:33:02

They did and the modern housewife with the pine dressers,

0:33:020:33:06

they used to put them on and that kind of look that we used to see.

0:33:060:33:10

-Yeah.

-Sadly, a bit out of fashion now.

0:33:100:33:13

-What sort of money would we put on that one?

-40-60.

0:33:130:33:16

Yeah, they paid £90.

0:33:160:33:17

-I think that was worth £90 20 years ago.

-Correct, I agree.

0:33:180:33:22

-I agree.

-Now, the next item is the Orrefors glass vase.

0:33:220:33:26

These are very hit and miss.

0:33:260:33:28

It's down to the shape...

0:33:280:33:29

We've gone 80-120.

0:33:300:33:32

-That's a bit punchy.

-It is punchy.

0:33:320:33:34

They paid £75 for it.

0:33:340:33:37

Richard and Julia's third item is the little silver tray.

0:33:370:33:40

Pin tray, card tray.

0:33:400:33:42

What's it got going for it? Well, it's Victorian, William Hutton.

0:33:420:33:46

It's a neat little tray and what else would you do with it?

0:33:460:33:51

It is what it is and we've gone 30-50.

0:33:510:33:54

I think that's a punchy sort of estimate.

0:33:540:33:57

You are going to have to work your socks off here.

0:33:570:33:59

-Am I?

-They paid £75 for it.

0:33:590:34:03

I can see you looking at that and wondering why?

0:34:030:34:05

I can't see. I just...

0:34:050:34:06

-I can't see.

-They might well need their bonus buy.

0:34:060:34:10

Let's have a look at it.

0:34:100:34:11

Richard and Julia, £240 you spent.

0:34:130:34:16

Did you just not trust this man with any more than £60?

0:34:160:34:20

-No, we just wanted to spend a lot of money.

-Oh, very good.

0:34:200:34:22

What do you think he's done with it?

0:34:220:34:24

I don't know. We'll have to see, won't we?

0:34:240:34:26

I said I was going to buy you something small

0:34:260:34:30

and it's perfectly formed, shiny.

0:34:300:34:32

-Yeah?

-It's getting exciting now.

0:34:320:34:34

Getting exciting... And it is old.

0:34:340:34:36

-THEY GASP

-Wow!

0:34:360:34:38

What can one say?!

0:34:380:34:39

Let me just explain.

0:34:400:34:42

OK, this is an 18th-century Agate box, pillbox.

0:34:420:34:46

Gilt metal around here and I think it's absolutely...

0:34:460:34:49

I like the markings. It's on both sides, top and bottom.

0:34:490:34:52

-Well, it's not markings, this is natural stone.

-This is pure?

0:34:520:34:54

-Oh, right.

-Agate.

-It hasn't been painted, you know!

0:34:540:34:57

-Oh, look, look, look, it goes all the way through.

-Yes, I like that.

0:34:570:35:01

Late 18th, early 19th century.

0:35:010:35:03

Because it's so old, how much did you spend?

0:35:030:35:05

Do you know what? £35.

0:35:050:35:08

-Oh, OK.

-For something this old, this beautiful...

0:35:080:35:11

-That sounds good.

-That's...

0:35:110:35:12

How much do you think we'll get on it?

0:35:120:35:15

-£40-£60 maybe.

-That's not bad.

-Yeah.

0:35:150:35:17

-Not bad.

-Think of the 40.

-I like it.

0:35:170:35:19

I'm thinking of the 60.

0:35:190:35:21

That would be marvellous.

0:35:220:35:24

-It is a quality piece.

-No, it's different.

0:35:240:35:26

-No, I like it.

-You don't have to make up your mind now.

0:35:260:35:28

Make up your mind depending on how you're going later.

0:35:280:35:31

-Yes.

-But we'll find out just what the auctioneer thinks.

0:35:310:35:35

Now, we've got Thomas's bonus buy here, which is this little pillbox.

0:35:360:35:40

-It's lovely, isn't it?

-It's just into the 20th century.

0:35:400:35:43

-Just.

-And the agate?

0:35:430:35:45

Lovely colours, isn't it? Very clever how they do that, isn't it?

0:35:450:35:48

Yeah, yeah. It's a pretty object.

0:35:480:35:50

We've gone 30-50.

0:35:500:35:52

They'll be quite pleased with that, Thomas paid £35.

0:35:520:35:55

-That's about right, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:35:550:35:57

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing you in an action on the rostrum.

0:35:570:35:59

Thank you very much.

0:35:590:36:01

Lynne and Glenys, look at you two beaming with excitement.

0:36:040:36:08

-We are.

-And anticipation.

0:36:080:36:10

Anticipation is the word.

0:36:100:36:12

-Are you confident?

-No.

0:36:120:36:14

We were this morning but we've wavered a little bit.

0:36:140:36:17

Revolving cylinder thermometer there, brass case.

0:36:370:36:40

Internet, you're out. At 50.

0:36:400:36:42

-All done. At 50.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:36:420:36:45

Don't worry, you've only lost a fiver

0:36:480:36:50

and here comes your gramophone.

0:36:500:36:51

-Ah...

-Now to the tabletop gramophone.

0:36:510:36:54

£20, £20.

0:36:560:36:58

Gramophone. £20.

0:36:580:37:00

0:37:000:37:03

The room is out. Internet at 20...

0:37:030:37:05

30 in the room.

0:37:050:37:07

Internet? 35, the internet.

0:37:070:37:10

No, sir. Are you sure? 35, the internet.

0:37:100:37:13

All done.

0:37:130:37:15

-Oh, girls.

-Oh, no!

-Oh, girls, that's a loss of £65,

0:37:150:37:19

which added to your fiver means you're just down £70.

0:37:190:37:23

But here comes the card case.

0:37:230:37:25

Silver card case and the shield is missing.

0:37:250:37:28

It's vacant, you can put your own little monogram in there.

This is uncharted territory for you.

0:37:500:37:51

£80.

0:37:510:37:53

£80. In the middle at £80.

0:37:530:37:56

That's £80. Out on the internet.

0:37:560:37:58

-Sold at £80.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:37:580:38:00

That's a £15 profit, which is marvellous,

0:38:000:38:03

which trims that loss-ette you had of £70

0:38:030:38:08

down to £55 - which is not bad, is it?

0:38:080:38:11

-No!

-So you've now got to make up your mind about the maestro's

0:38:110:38:14

bonus buy - the copper desk stand.

0:38:140:38:17

-Should we go for it?

-Yeah, we think we've got to go for it.

0:38:170:38:19

-You didn't have to think about that, did you, girls?

-No.

0:38:190:38:21

-You're going with the bonus buy?

-We're going with the bonus buy.

-I'm thrilled about that.

0:38:210:38:25

Little desk stand now.

0:38:250:38:27

£20 I'm bid.

0:38:270:38:29

0:38:290:38:32

£40. 45 in the front row.

0:38:320:38:35

45. 45. 45. You're all out.

0:38:350:38:39

45. All done.

0:38:390:38:42

Well, a profit's a profit.

0:38:420:38:43

Well, that's knocked out all your losses, hasn't it? Nearly.

0:38:430:38:46

-Not quite.

-You lost 55, you've now only lost 50.

0:38:460:38:50

-True.

-I want to cry.

0:38:500:38:52

Don't cry, darling. Please, don't cry.

0:38:520:38:54

£50. A loss of £50 has won on Bargain Hunt many a time.

0:38:540:39:00

Probably not today.

0:39:000:39:01

You never know. Don't mention it to the Blues, OK?

0:39:010:39:04

-BOTH:

-We won't.

0:39:040:39:05

Well, Richard and Julia...

0:39:120:39:14

Julia, you're looking particularly excited.

0:39:140:39:16

Yes, I'm very excited.

0:39:160:39:18

Have you been to lots of auctions in your life?

0:39:180:39:20

A long, long time ago and I was very scared to scratch my nose.

0:39:200:39:23

-Don't scratch your nose here cos you'll buy something.

-I know.

0:39:230:39:26

And you're selling, not buying, just remember that.

0:39:260:39:29

-Are you confident?

-Very confident.

0:39:290:39:30

-Yes.

-We're going to be very confident.

0:39:300:39:32

I like that. Thomas, confidence.

0:39:320:39:34

I love the fact they're confident.

0:39:340:39:36

They bought some really lovely things and they went with it.

0:39:360:39:38

-They went to spend the money.

-Yes.

0:39:380:39:40

Well, coming up is the jelly mould.

0:39:400:39:41

0:40:050:40:07

-GAVEL BANGS

0:40:070:40:09

-Oh, dear.

-Oh, well.

0:40:090:40:11

-Oh, well.

-What happens if you divide 90 by two?

0:40:110:40:15

You get 45. That's your loss.

0:40:150:40:17

Here comes the Orrefors glass vase.

0:40:400:40:42

-Come on.

-Come on!

-Come on!

0:40:420:40:44

Steady.

0:40:440:40:46

Right, that's a loss of £30, which added to your losses hitherto,

0:40:470:40:52

you are just 75 down.

0:40:520:40:55

Here comes the card case.

0:40:550:40:56

All done? £50 the internet.

0:41:160:41:19

No?

0:41:190:41:20

-Going at 50.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:41:200:41:23

-Oh, no!

-I'm disappointed we broke the 45 mark.

0:41:230:41:26

It is a trifle disappointing to lose £25.

0:41:260:41:28

The good news is that you've lost a very even amount of money -

0:41:280:41:31

exactly £100.

0:41:310:41:33

Oh, no!

0:41:330:41:35

-I hate that.

-Thomas could get back this £100 with the pillbox.

0:41:350:41:39

-Yes.

-Yeah.

-Do you want to go with it or not?

0:41:390:41:41

-Yes.

-Definitely.

-Go with the bonus buy?

0:41:410:41:43

-Definitely.

-We should go with it, we like it.

-It's a bonus buy yes?

0:41:430:41:46

-Yes.

-Here it is.

0:41:460:41:48

A little box. A sweet little thing.

0:41:480:41:50

Where are you going to be? £20 I'm bid.

0:41:500:41:52

25, £30, £32, 35, £40.

0:41:520:41:57

-£40.

-Well done, Thomas.

0:41:570:41:59

£40 in the room.

0:41:590:42:00

All done? £40 all finished.

0:42:000:42:04

-Thank you.

-Thomas, while I remember,

0:42:040:42:06

that's about what you thought it would make.

0:42:060:42:08

-You said it would make a slim profit, slim it did...

-Yeah.

0:42:080:42:12

..which is marvellous. I mean, you reduced your losses to just £95.

0:42:120:42:15

Thank you, Rosco!

0:42:150:42:16

-It was two figures rather than three.

-It is.

0:42:160:42:19

The psychological balance there is with you.

0:42:190:42:21

Don't mention to the Reds.

0:42:210:42:22

-No.

-That might be a winning score.

-Yes.

0:42:220:42:24

Well, well, well, I've got a question for you both.

0:42:310:42:34

What happened in 1929?

0:42:340:42:36

-Wall Street Crash.

-The crash.

0:42:360:42:38

Never have I seen such losses.

0:42:400:42:42

Oh, I don't why you're laughing, Reds, you've lost £50.

0:42:430:42:47

I mean, it's quite remarkable!

0:42:470:42:49

We don't have winners, we have two runners up, really.

0:42:490:42:51

One's running up just slightly behind the other one,

0:42:510:42:54

to be perfectly honest, because Blues, you have lost £95!

0:42:540:43:00

Didn't we do well?!

0:43:000:43:02

Absolutely magnificent.

0:43:020:43:04

You haven't got a lot to be smug about, really.

0:43:040:43:06

You didn't do all that well yourselves, to be perfectly honest,

0:43:060:43:08

did you? Have you had a good time losing £50?

0:43:080:43:11

-We've had had a fantastic time.

-We've had a great time.

0:43:110:43:13

Marvellous. Have you had a lovely time losing £95?

0:43:130:43:15

-Superb.

-Really good.

-Splendid, splendid.

0:43:150:43:17

I'm so thrilled.
