Antiques Roadshow expert 'jealous' of guest's Napoleonic item worth staggering amount


"Yeah, yeah," one responded. "He's a part of the family, you know? Poor boy, fairy lights around the column every Christmas!"

Taken aback, John replied: "Oh, okay, so you have actual fairy lights [going around]? Ah, okay..."

The two guests laughed at John's confusion before he added: "Because it's a real statement piece, it is a tricky one to value.

"But I would say easily at auction comfortably £20,000 to £30,000."

The guests gasped in disbelief as one remarked: "That's very nice..."

"Yeah, yeah, I'm very jealous," John admitted before concluding: "Keep wrapping those fairy lights around it!"

Antiques Roadshow airs on Sundays at 8pm on BBC One.
