A valuation day at the Wedgwood Museum has given visitors a chance to find out what their treasures are worth.
Experts were on hand to give Staffordshire residents a valuation of a range of items.
Leslie Tudor, 68, from Stoke-on-Trent took in a jardinière garden pot to the valuers which got a top end value of £700 to £800 if it wasn’t for the minor damage.
“It has been in the family for 60 years,” he explained. “When I brought the bowl in to the museum last week, they told me to bring it today to get it professionally valued.
“I am happy with the valuation but its price doesn’t make much difference because I won’t be selling it on. It belonged to my mum and dad and I want it to stay.”
The museum’s managing director, Gaye Blake-Roberts, added: “The museum can help the valuers with the history of things and the valuers can help the people who come in. It gives everyone a unique opportunity.”
