Laugh out loud and you wouldn't read about it malrap.

This afternoon I was thinking about how I missed one of my favourite TV programs because I no longer have pay TV. And that program believe it or not was the,

ANTIQUES ROAD SHOW.

I would not have a clue what your photographed items are worth. I have only two antiques myself and they are a volume one and two edition of Milton's Paradise Lost, and Paradise Regained. Both books are over 165 years old.

It will be interesting for us to see what price the items reach.
I don't know a lot about antiques at all unfortunately but have a friend who is pretty good at knowing collectables etc and it is always interesting browsing antique shops with her.

I would say you will get a very good price for the hair brush set, especially as it looks to be in its original box and is tortoise shell.
The other items look interesting but as to price, i haven't a clue. I think over here they would sell very well.
Good luck with it all.

UK prices I would guess to be...

A: £40 - 60

B: £60 - 80

C: £600 - 800

OK, I'll put my head on the block here and say:

1. est 60-80, but will sell for only 40-50, as this is not a fashionable item.

2. est 80-100, but will only sell for, possibly 80 as although tortoiseshell is collectable the market does not like 'used' hairbrushes.

3. est 120-140, and will sell for as much as 180/190, because even with 'brown goods' being down at the moment, this item is small and useful.

8) Those are my predictions.

I like this game.
