Four Canadian antiques and collectibles experts will be waiting to welcome members of the public to Four Rooms in January, all attempting to sell their treasures for the highest price. The aim of the show is to select the best deal, but the contestant may end up with nothing.
Four Rooms is presented by CBC, which also produces Dragon’s Den. The four experts are Scott Landon, who has his own antiques business after a lifetime of collecting, and Jessica Lindsay Phillips, who specialises in objects from the ‘dark side’, like mummies and shrunken heads. Another, Derreck Martin is the owner of a family business, believed to be the largest dealer in Canada, and Eddy Rogo is an auctioneer with more than 25 years of experience buying and selling antiques all over the world.
One expert will be in each of the four rooms. They will make an offer to the contestant, who then decides whether or not to accept it. If it is refused, the deal is off and the contestant has to move on to the next expert, and can’t return to a deal. Among the items to be shown on the first episode are a rare Canadian flag and a mummified cat.
Collectors of fine antiques in the UK can find more traditional items like Edwardian and Victorian furniture – although there may be some unusual objects available. You will discover a selection of antique bookcases in Lancashire and surrounding areas, among other practical items.
