The Chenies Manor episodes of the Antiques Roadshow was shown over two episodes on BBC 1 at 8pm on Sunday 19 October and 26 October 2014
Finds included two paintings of the Titanic, an intricate bamboo pot and a highly valuable piece of Star Wars memorabilia.
“The Roadshow team are spoilt for choice on a glorious summer’s day as they admire a chair designed by a family better known for luxury cars and a painting by one of Britain’s first modern artists – still life with pint of beer! Fiona Bruce meets a collector of Star Wars memorabilia who hunts down rare props around the world and she’s amazed at the value of an iconic plastic helmet. The secrets of a Chinese bamboo pot are revealed when specialist Freya Yuan translates an engraved poem and its value comes as a shock.”
The Roadshow also explores the growing debate around antique ivory with contributions from Will Travers of the Born Free Foundation and Dr Marjorie Trusted of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
