David Dickinson has just finished filming in Doncaster for the new series of Dickinson’s Real Deal, which will be aired in 2012. The popular, perma-tanned antiques expert filmed at The Dome for eight hours while struggling with tonsillitis. The 70 year old remained his usual charming self, while a host of people queued all day to discover what their treasures were worth.
The antiques expert was certainly not disappointed, as a host of antiques were presented for appraisal. One lady helped her mother to carry some porcelain, including Spode and Dresden. Although she was interested in discovering their worth, she was more excited at the prospect of meeting David Dickinson in person. Another visitor to the antiques show had a painting by Cecil Aldin, the famous British artist. The painting had been in the family for many years, although had spent the last seven years stored away in a cupboard. The painting depicts six Dutch girls, dancing and was painted in the 1900s. With the help of Dickinson, the painting was sold for £210.
David Dickinson thought the day was a huge success, despite being ill. He said:
“We’ve had some truly wonderful items and lots of surprises. Northern, working class towns always seem to produce the best items- I love coming to these sort of places because you never know what you’re going to get.
We’ve had some fantastic characters and some extraordinary items.”
