Savernake View Care Home welcomes Eric Knowles

The well-known BBC antiques expert, Eric Knowles, paid us a visit recently to tell us how he began his prolific career in antiques before becoming an expert on the ever popular programmes, Antiques Roadshow and Bargain Hunt.

Eric is always a very engaging speaker and our guests were delighted to learn about Eric’s favourite pieces that he has collected along the way as well as the most memorable items he’s had the pleasure of finding and auctioning.

Following his wonderful talk, attendees were treated to a lovely lunch prepared by our Head Chef and kitchen team, before they returned to their seats to listen to Eric value several pieces. There were some beautiful items, from ceramics to delicate figurines and it was brilliant to learn more about them and their mystery origins.
