The presenter of Antiques Roadshow, Fiona Bruce, will be reunited with an art expert who previously uncovered works of art worth millions of pounds, while filming an episode of the popular antiques TV show in Wales. In recent years, Fiona Bruce worked alongside Philip Mould, who is an expert in art, on the TV show Fake or Fortune shown on BBC 1.
Fake or Fortune filmed at Gregynog Hall at Tregynon in Wales where the attention was focused on sisters who lived at the hall, Gwendoline and Margaret Davies. Three of their paintings were said to be fakes, but the Fake or Fortune team proved that the paintings were indeed genuine and worth millions. Antiques Roadshow is now filming at the hall and the presenter is looking forward to meeting again with Mould. Bruce has been encouraging people to arrive at the hall with their valuables, antiques and collectibles. The presenter has appeared on the TV show for six years and says that each week is different for varying reasons. Around six million people watched the Antiques Roadshow last year, seeing some fascinating and valuable discoveries.
One person had bought a glass goblet which was purchased for £2 and had a value of £5,000. A wine bottle which was discovered in a skip turned out to be made in 1660 and had a value of £12,000. Although people can be fooled by fake antiques, experienced dealers know immediately what they are looking for. When searching for furniture, like antique dining tables in Preston , it is advisable to contact a reputable antiques dealer in the area.
