Waited ages 4the £1mill item on antiques rdshow.was maquette of Angel of North. Bagoshite


After waiting for almost the whole of the antiques Roadshow for the “Highest ever” valuation, I was extremely disappointed to see that it was a maquette for “The Angel of the North”.

The 4ft-high bronze maquette was used to persuade councilors in Gateshead to commission the REAL statue and was so heavy it required five people to carry it in for filming.

I have no doubt that the People up in Gateshead Love the Angel, it certainly does look impressive as you drive past, but for me, as a piece of art, I can only describe it as FUGLY. So I wasn’t overly impressed that that particular item was the most valuable
