The Roadshow comes from Halifax, where treasures include a set of Soviet propaganda posters, a rose-bowl with a curse,and a royal portrait by Beryl Cook.

The Antiques Roadshow comes from the Piece Hall in Halifax, recently restored to its full Georgian glory. Treasures turning up include a royal portrait by Beryl Cook and artwork by the ‘Pennine Painter’ Peter Brook.

Jewellery expert Susan Rumfitt admires an art deco bracelet, so loved by its owner that she themed her wedding around it, while John Benjamin marvels at a diamond necklace given in return for making banana sandwiches.

Stephen Moore takes care when handling a Wedgewood bowl that its owner claims is cursed, while military specialist Mark Smith discovers the story behind a 'lost' suitcase filled with letters from a captured WWII pilot. And Fiona Bruce gets her hands on a spectacular plumed hat once owned by the Duke of Wellington.
