I've just got back from an extremely enjoyable one-and-a-half hour long phone-in valuation for BBC Radio London. Hosted by the lovely Lesley Joseph, I was invited along as a guest with my friend Tracy Martin. Lesley is best known for her character Dorian in hit BBC TV sitcom 'Birds of a Feather' but, unlike her snobbish TV character, her natural, funny and friendly charm just beams out over the airwaves.
The lofts and drawers of London's residents certainly didn't disappoint this morning. Items listeners called in about included a boxed Parker 51 pen and pencil set valued at £50-70, a set of six late 19thC Coalport handpainted cup and saucers valued at around £30 each, an Edison phonograph valued at over £200, and a set of Royal Doulton 'Snowman' figurines that could fetch up to £800!
