A new reality TV show which focuses on collectors and antiques will be introduced in Montreal shortly. The programme is based on the British version of Four Rooms, trying to include a taste of the Antiques Roadshow and a hint of Dragon’s Den. The producers of the Canadian show are touring the country searching for people who have interesting items they would like to sell.
The TV show is based on the premise of there being four rooms, each with an antiques expert inside waiting to provide a valuation. Once the offer has been made by the expert, the owner of the object of interest has to decide whether or not to accept the deal. The owner is free to refuse the deal and move on to try the next room to see if a better offer will be received. However, there is no returning to a room once it has been left.
The British TV show started in 2011 and is now in its third season. Some interesting items have been discovered on the show, including a pair of Muhammad Ali’s boxing gloves and a fur coat that belonged to Richard Burton. A VW Golf car, registered in 2001, that once belonged to Kate Middleton during her days as a student was also presented on the show, along with a writing chair belonging to J K Rowling.
For those who would rather receive an accurate valuation of their treasured antiques, like antique chairs, Lancashire has reputable antiques dealers who can offer valuations and also present a selection of antiques for perusal.
