A - Antiques Roadshow - Season 38 Episode 15 - Balmoral 2

Summary: Antiques Roadshow makes a return visit to Balmoral, the Queen's private residence in Aberdeenshire, where treasures brought by visitors include an 18th-century bottle unearthed by a digger, a mirror inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and a remarkable collection of medals awarded to a man who served in both World Wars and helped rescue survivors from the Titanic. Fiona Bruce enjoys the chance to drive a Land Rover originally acquired by the royal household in 1953 for use on the estate and now privately owned, and there's a glimpse of rare archive footage of the young Prince Charles and Princess Anne driving an electric child's car around the grounds. Two pieces of valuable glass turn out to have had lucky escapes, as Andy McConnell marvels at a bottle from the 1740s that survived being dug up by a mechanical digger and Eric Knowles admires a 1920s Lalique vase mistaken for a doorstop. Paul Atterbury is impressed by a fine piece of Scottish craftsmanship in the form of a mirror made in the Art Nouveau style by a student at the Glasgow School of Art during Charles Rennie Mackintosh's time. The team are enthralled by the life story of a pianist who accompanied world-famous opera singer Maria Callas on tour for two years and amused by a couple who bought a Clarice Cliff coffee set in a charity shop in the 1970s for £1, only to misplace the coffee pot and accidentally plaster one of the cups behind a wall. Militaria specialist Mark Smith is overwhelmed when a humble Christmas tin turns out to contain one of the most remarkable collections of medals he has ever seen, belonging to a man decorated for his service in both World Wars and his role in the rescue of survivors from the Titanic.
