Antiques Roadshow: Dyffryn Gardens 1 (S44EP2 BBC One Sun 19 Sep 2021)



Dyffryn Gardens 1: Antiques Roadshow is at Dyffryn Gardens near Cardiff, where treasures include a necklace made from some of the largest pieces of Baltic amber that jewellery specialist John Benjamin has ever seen.

Jon Baddeley admires a humble compass once owned by local man Edgar Evans, who was part of Scott’s ill-fated Antarctic expedition and one of the first of the party to lose his life on the ice.

Frances Christie admires a vibrant flower painting by artist Bryan Organ, and Marc Allum is thrilled to see a giant Victorian penknife packed with hundreds of utensils. Ronnie Archer-Morgan is intrigued by a parlour table crafted in Jamaica from scores of varieties of wood, while Alexandra Gill enjoys a painting of a prize-winning racing pigeon.

Fiona Bruce explores the history of Nantgarw porcelain, made locally for a brief period in the early 19th century and now considered some of the world’s finest, while Chris Yeo appeals for viewers to help identify the people in some photographs capturing life in the Bute Town area of Cardiff at the start of the 20th century.
