Antique Roadshow comes to Mallala

Have you ever wondered how much Nanna’s old cutlery is worth or what that unique piece of jewelry might bring?

Perhaps you have a cherished book or doll from a few generations ago and are keen to get it valued?

Well, the District Council of Mallala’s second successful Antique Roadshow was the place to be last month to have all your questions answered.

Auctioneer Paul Bartlett was a seemingly never-ending wealth of knowledge and information as he worked his way through the many cups, serving platters, pieces of jewelry, toys and much more at the Mallala Football Clubrooms on Tuesday May 17.

While china and jewelry were common among the crowd, some of the more unusual items presented included an early 20th Century Purdy shotgun, the Mallala Museum’s 1928 Rio Speed Wagon, a 1909 Masonic Medal and a 10 gallon beer keg painted by acclaimed Australian outback artist, Pro Hart.

Every item had a story to tell and while there were monetary figures handed out most cannot be given a sentimental value.
