stuffed pheasants and toy cars were among the items brought before the experts at Denby Pottery Visitor’s Centre on Saturday. The centre hosts a monthly antiques evaluation fair where Bamford’s husband and wife team Annabel and James Lewis inspect and value antiques.
Annabel said: “There was a selection of ceramics, ranging from Roman pottery right through to a Moorcroft vase worth about £600 from the 1930s.
“There was a whole cross-section of things - an Edwardian maple cabinet, a collection of Dinky and Corgi toy cars and a brace of stuffed pheasants!
“It’s always very busy - there can be up to 60 or 70 people.
“It’s very popular.”
The event starts at 10am and finishes at 12pm and takes place on the first Saturday of every month.
Bamfords have a variety of experts who specialise in everything from furniture and pictures, to ceramics, silver ware, cameras and scientific equipment, clocks and barometers, heraldry, local books and manuscripts, vintage toys and weapons.
