Other items include an Omega wristwatch, an 18th-century pistol and a gold necklace from the Alaskan Gold Rush.

Fiona hears from one of the newest members of the team, picture specialist Alexandra Gill, about how Tutankhamun inspired her journey into antiques, while miscellaneous expert Jon Baddeley challenges Fiona to rank three intriguing optical items in order of value.
