A - Antiques Roadshow - Season 37 Episode 21 - Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum 1

Summary: The Antiques Roadshow team visit Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in Glasgow, where discoveries include Victorian insect jewellery, a rare silver cup from the time of Cromwell and treasured comics featuring Scotland's beloved rogue 'Oor Wullie'. The team are intrigued and a little unsettled by an army of insects mounted in precious metals as they delve into the Victorian fascination for taxidermy, while glass specialist Andy McConnell is baffled by a large glass vase that has been converted to a lamp. There are Scottish treasures aplenty, including two mesmerising portraits with links to the Glasgow Boys school of artists and a claymore sword from the Boer War that was most recently used to cut a wedding cake. Books specialist Clive Farahar, meanwhile, gets a lesson in pronunciation when he appraises a rare collection of children's annuals featuring Scottish comic character 'Oor Wullie'. Silver specialist Alastair Dickenson is left awestruck by an exceptional silver cup made during the time of Oliver Cromwell, and there's a shock in store for the charity that owns it. There's also another chance to see a remarkable skeleton clock that first dazzled specialist Ben Wright in Dundee in 2008, and he has exciting news about the identity of the maker.
