I Want to be an Antique Expert Antique Evening For Hire

1hr to 2hrs Activity - (suitable for 10 – 200 guests, Indoors - Usually held over a meal)

Outline of Our Antique Expert Activity

Ten smallish strange, unidentifiable antique objects dating between 1780 - 1920 and valued between £30.00 - £400.00 are placed on a large table (or if over dinner on the dining tables). Each individual or team must first choose a team name and of course points are awarded for creativity and then decipher the following from each object:

  • What is it?
  • What is the value?
  • How old is it?

To make it slightly easier our host is on hand to give clues for all the objects e.g. 'this object was used in the bathroom mainly by men'. After the selection of curios are identified and answer cards are collected, our antiques host will then reveal the truth about the antiques and who is the prize winning individual or team in a short, fun and witty finale speech.

The Host

Our host is Paul Viney who hosts ‘Children in Need Auction of Promises’ each year on Radio 2 and also appears regularly on The Antiques Road Show.

He began his career at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, he then worked for the National Trust at Waddesden Manor, the former Rothschild home near Aylesbury. Paul then joined Phillips Auctioneers where he was Vice-President in New York for three years and European Director from 1986-1992.
