A Harborough couple are now thirty one thousand pounds richer!

A rare Victorian brooch Jill Cousins had in the bottom of her jewellery box sold for the amazing amount at auction.

 

 

It was estimated to fetch ten thousand but sold for over three times that at Gildings in Market Harborough.

Jill only found out how valuable it was when she saw a sketch of it on TV’s Antiques Roadshow, she’d intended to sell it at Harborough’s antiques market for just a tenner days later.

HFMs Moley, Nick & djbraine

were there to witness the remarkable auction, in which just two bidders were involved. The eventual winner was an anonymous telephone bidder.

Nick spoke with a breathless Jill after the event.
