Review

We’re used to hearing someone say that, no matter what the financial value of their antique, they’d never consider selling it. But it’s strangely refreshing when a valuation makes a person rethink their attitude towards something they’d previously thought ugly. “Sweet!” gasps one Yorkshire man about the carved wooden eagle his son-in-law bought but which he doesn’t really like. “Perhaps one could come to love it,” mutters another about a Japanese teapot that he’s not keen on either.

There’s no chance that the owner of an art deco statuette would consider parting with her treasure, though. Not even to expert Will Farmer, who reveals he accidentally smashed his own one.
