According to Drew Pritchard most homes have the odd treasure squirrelled away, and sometimes homeowners aren’t even aware that the bit of crockery they inherited is actually worth a few hundred quid.
This week he gets to grips with an unusual sculpture, an antique clock, and a couple of bits that aren’t quite what they seem.
Long-cased grandfather clocks like this one were made by the million, and there were hundreds of different makers. This clock was made by Robert Chasty, whose workshop was based in Hatherleigh, a market town in Devon. I would date this around the 1860s. It's very important that it's working and to leave it in as original a condition as possible. Its value is in the region of £1,200 to £1,800.
French song plate
This type of plate was popular in the 1820s to 1830s. However these look like imitations. If they were original they would be worth about £350 for the set, but as copies about a quarter of that value.
Pair of vintage chairs
These seats have been made up later, and are of low quality. They date from the 1980s, and I would estimate these to be around the £40 for the pair if sold.
I really like this! It's a quirky item and if it were to come up for sale at an auction, it could realistically realise around £300 to £500.
