I grabbed some sculptures from a free bin in a charity shop – when I had them valued I was too stunned to speak | The Sun
A GUEST on Antiques Roadshow was left stunned after he found out the selling price of sculptures he picked up for free.
Antiques expert Ronnie Archer-Morgan valued the statues on an episode of the reality show, and the owner was shocked to find out they were worth more than he thought.
The guest had picked up the sculptures from a free bin in a charity shop, and did not expect them to fetch a high price.
But Ronnie revealed the three pieces were worth hundreds of pounds.
The guest said: "We got them a number of years ago, we walked past a charity shop which had its free bin outside.
"And these were in the free bin."

BBC show favourite Ronnie, 73, exclaimed: "Really?! They’re all good sculptures! How did they end up in the bin?"
He then went on to reveal that the first item was worth £300 to £400, and the second could get between £200 to £400.
When looking at the last sculpture, the expert shared the shocking revelation: "If this was German Expressionist, it would be £50,000 upwards.
"But as it is I still think it’s £500, £600, £700, £800."
