Antiques Road Trip

BBC2's Antiques Road Trip travelled back to Boldon Auction Galleries this week for another successful day's filming.

The experts for the day were Anita Manning and Mark Stacey who arrived in a vintage Morris Minor.

Their Lots in the auction included a 9ct gold brooch set with turquoise which sold for £55, a silver bottle top in the form of a jockey with a Birmingham hallmark which sold for £25  and a 1930s art deco Crown Devon jar which sold for £55.  

Mark Stacey's biggest success was with a rare Victorian ceremonial cased whistle with belcher chain and lionhead buckle that sold for an impressive £280 - making him a profit of £180 less commission and lotting fee.

The team were very pleased with the "roaring success" of the day and the programme is expected to be shown in the autumn.

 Our television coverage will continue when our next Fine Art and Antique Sale on Wednesday 6th July is filmed by ITV's Dickinson's Real Deal.
