Antiques Roadshow Guests Stunned by Unexpected Values

Tearful Revelations on Antiques Roadshow

An episode of Antiques Roadshow’s Christmas special brought forth an emotional moment when a guest, who had kept her childhood teddy bear in a carrier bag for years, discovered its exceptional value.

The special, focusing solely on toys, showcased members of the public and experts sharing nostalgic playthings from the past.

The Rare Teddy Bear

One guest shared her rare Steiff teddy bear, explaining its origins from her great aunt, then her mother, and now herself.

Expert Bunny Campione was astounded upon seeing the furry bear, praising its rarity and revealing its astonishing valuation of £15,000, leaving the guest in shock.

The Valuable WWII Watch

Another guest, previously unaware of the value, brought an old broken watch purchased by her father for £20 from an army surplus store.

Expert Richard Price identified it as a World War II pilot’s watch used by the Luftwaffe. He confirmed it as an A. Lange & Söhne, a highly sought-after brand among collectors, valuing it between £8,000 and £10,000.

The Emotional Reactions

Both guests were overwhelmed by the revelations, with the teddy bear owner admitting to storing it away and the watch owner jokingly considering not returning it to her father after learning its substantial worth. The unexpected valuations brought emotional and surprising moments on the show.
