A guest on Antiques Roadshow was delighted to be told her Italian-made violin is worth a considerable sum of money.
A rather valuable string instrument appeared in the most recent episode of Antiques Roadshow.
And she was pleased to discover the 17th-century instrument, which she purchased in 1978 for £7,000, is now worth between £40,000 and £60,000.
Looking inside the instrument, antiques expert Marc Allum spotted the name Testore, who he describes as “one of the greatest violin makers in history”.
