The 2021 Antiques Roadshow on the BBC is currently in full swing.
One owner got a shock when his antique, a Chinese table, got a price tag of £ 120,000.
However, it soon turned out that the table was one of the most valuable items in the history of the show.

“I have to say that this is the most spectacular and enigmatic piece of furniture I’ve seen in a long time,” he shimmered.
The owner went on to explain that he bought the table in an online auction for £ 7,000 from the United States.
What did Marc say about the review?
Marc told the owner, “What I do know is that a smaller version of this, a console table, was put up for auction a few years ago.
“It didn’t have a platform base, it was missing the top, and it wasn’t in brilliant condition, and it raised £ 55,000.
“We can’t really say what we have here, but it’s a lot better than £ 55,000.
It’s bigger, it’s more complete. For me it’s better quality.
He added, “It’s bigger, it’s more complete. For me it’s better quality.
“I could suggest that if we put it in a really good auction somewhere in Hong Kong, for example in a very specialized oriental sale, that a table like this could make £ 80,000 to £ 120,000.”
The owner smiled broadly and casually replied, “That’s nice!”
On a good run
The seasoned Sunday teatime favorite continued its good string of expensive finds.

“I’ve thought long and hard about what it might be worth. I have to say I haven’t seen very many of them. I think I’ve sold one in my career, ”said expert Bill Harriman.
“There is no reason to doubt that it is not right. If so, then I think it must be £ 150,000. “
