Antiques Roadshow expert ‘heartbroken’ by problem with £10,000 Fabergé cigarette box

“One problem with this exquisite box and it really breaks my heart and that is in that corner it has sustained a fracture to the rock crystal.”

Evaluating the item, John revealed: “If it was in perfect condition I think it’s worth £8,000 to £10,000.

“Let me be a little careful and say £5,000 to £8,000 with the damage it’s sustained.”

“To find out it’s Fabergé is amazing,” the guest quipped and his mother replied: “I feel the same, actually I can’t believe it.”

Antiques Roadshow continues on BBC One on Sunday at 8pm.
