Antiques with Eric Knowles

Back by popular demand,  the return of antique experts Eric Knowles and his team.

Representing the Swan at Tetsworth Antique Centre and Auction Rooms, TV star and antiques expert Eric Knowles is back with his team of Paul Hayes and Tom Keane on both the Saturday and Sunday. They’ll be offering free valuations at their exhibition stand, so dig out and dust off those old treasures Aunt Marge left you or all those curios you always hoped might be worth a bob or two but were too afraid to ask and get an instant expert opinion.


Ceramics, glass, Art Deco and most things Oriental are the areas to talk to Eric about. Old jewellery, silver and watches is Paul’s area of expertise whist Tom specialises in paintings and furniture


Items you can fit in a carrier bag are obviously easiest to bring along but don’t worry if that chaise longue or that victorian oil painting won’t fit in, the team is just as happy to give valuations on items too big to bring along. Simply take a photo and share it with them on your iPad or phone. If you are lucky enough to have a house full of items on which you need advice, the team will often arrange local home visits following the event without any obligation on your part.
