Antiques Roadshow guest was stunned to discover the HUGE value of car plaques after finding them in an attic and being told to “throw them away”.

An Antiques Roadshow guest was shocked to discover the huge value of car plaques after finding them in an attic before being told to throw them away.

In Sunday's episode, viewers brought their prized possessions to London's Crystal Palace in the hope of finding happiness there.

One man left behind expert and car plaque collector John Foster, who was very jealous of his collection from around the world.

“I don’t have anything like this collection,” John said, “You must have been collecting for years.”

However, the gentleman revealed that he found them in the attic almost a decade ago while carrying out building work on an old Georgian vicarage.

He recalled: “The lady said, 'No nonsense, throw it away'.”

John then explained why the collection was so unusual and raved about the incredible quality.

He said: “The thing I think is really great is the Iraq Automobile Club. This is the first time I’ve seen it, I didn’t even know it existed.”

Discussing the value, he explained some were worth between £80 and £100, while others could fetch anything up to £500 at auction.

“Overall I would say you have between £1,500 and £2,000.”

A little shocked, the man murmured, “Very nice.”

This came after a guest was stunned to discover the true value of two vases she picked up from a charity shop during a recent episode from Derry, Northern Ireland.

A woman brought two flower vases to view which she had bought for just £1 each after bargaining down the price in a charity shop.

She explained that she was almost about to throw them away before she decided to take them with her to learn more about their story.

Although the ornaments were not in the best condition, expert John Sandon surprised the guest and viewers by revealing that they were actually very valuable.

He explained that they came from a pottery company called Belleek and the pieces were “highly prized” by collectors.

What made the pottery even more unique was its gold trim and tulip decoration, as John revealed that Belleek didn't make many of these styles.

He said the pieces date entirely from around 1870 and that a vase could sell for an eye-watering £700 to £1,000.

The guest was stunned and said, “Wow!” I actually wanted to throw them away when I first brought them home! I didn't like her.'

John chimed in and commented: “That £2 was well spent!”
