Antiques Roadshow expert stunned as piece of art uncovered as fake but fetches huge sum


    “But it’s very close and I think we would be happy to say something like ‘studio of’, which means they’d worked alongside Sir Thomas Lawrence,” the expert added. 

    As for how much it would value at: “At auction, I’d suggest something in the region of £1,000 to £1,500.”

    “That’s pleasing,” the guest said trying to hide her disappointment. 

    “But I think what’s most special is that she’s come home for the afternoon hasn’t she!” Alexandra concluded. 

    Antiques Roadshow is available to watch on the BBC iPlayer now.
