The sale follows a valuation day which was held at the stunning Ashridge House in Hertfordshire on Friday 31st August where members of the public were invited to bring along up to three antiques and collectables for valuation.

 

Once valued, the Flog It! team of experts decided which items should go forward to the auction at Tring Market Auctions.

 

PreviousFlog It! programmes have seen some incredible sales with a small cream jug sold at auction for £1,300; a ceramic bowl, bought for £4 at a car boot sale, achieving £1,500; and more recently, a gentleman who brought in a ceremonial cup which later sold for £44,000!
