Antiques Roadshow expert admits ‘heart stopped’ over snake pillbox valuation

The guest replied: “Well I’ve had it fifty plus years. I don’t know what it is, I don’t know where it’s from.

“Where I got it from was my grandparents home. My grandmother hated the look of it and my grandfather gave it to me, I took it home, my mother took one look at it, she knew where it had come from as it was her parents home.

“She said, ‘Get rid of it,’ and I had to hide it for the rest of the time that I was at home, which was another 10 years.”

Ronnie asked: “Where did you hide it?” as the guest answered: “In my sock drawer.”
