Online public auctions have already begun for more than 120 items belonging to the chef and his family, which clearly had a propensity for classic and chic furniture.

Mel Lastman’s personal watch collection would be a pretty cool thing for any fan of the controversial figure.

Murano glass sculptures, porcelain figurines and a custom feather sofa are among the unique pieces available, all a very specific taste suiting the wealthy octogenarians who once owned them.

Although Lastman’s Deer Park luxury condo’s up for grabs seem quite pricey, some of the deals so far are pretty low, with many around $11.

This lamp, is it currently $96, tasteful and unique, or just hideous and creepy? You decide!

The collection goes from the current offer of $ 3 on certain $ 90 glass jewelry boxes for a Louis XV style dresser cabinet with a fanciful appearance for the biggest madness, $ 1,923 for a set of silver cutlery sterling that comes in a plush velvet woody box that may or may not be haunted.

Also for sale: Persian rugs, 40-pound bronze sculptures, ornate inkwells, and a few other furnishings and decorative items for those with the funds and aesthetic taste for such things.

Every true adult is supposed to have a good set of dishes – why not make it a dish eaten by Mel Lastman?

Bien que cette vente puisse être réservée à ceux qui sont fans d’objets anciens haut de gamme, des choses comme cette collection intéressante d’accessoires pour hommes, des gobelets à vin plaqués argent voyants (mais bon marché), un cristal de quartz naturel giant and a collection of vintage lighters are objectively pretty cool.

Also, have we mentioned the cool carpets?

As the auction ends today, extended bidding on late bids means it could stretch for longer.

POCATELLO – A local man who allegedly attacked staff at a local restaurant has been charged with a felony.

Darion Tyron Vinson, Jr., 23, faces a charge of assault and battery with intent to commit a felony, court records show. Additionally, he was charged with misdemeanor malicious trespass to property and two counts of assault and battery.

Pocatello police received a call around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday from an employee of the Mandarin House restaurant reporting an apparent domestic disturbance. The caller told police that a man and woman were arguing across the street, according to a probable cause affidavit.

As officers were on their way, the person called police again, reporting that the man, later identified as Vinson, had crossed the street and was heading towards the Mandarin House.

When officers arrived at the scene, Vinson immediately raised his hands and surrendered, the affidavit states.

While speaking with several victims at the scene, officers learned that the caller saw Vinson and a woman arguing across the street, prompting their initial call. When Vinson saw the caller, they said he yelled, “Stop looking at me.”

So the caller turned to head back to the Mandarin House, only to find that Vinson was already heading in their direction.

Vinson entered the restaurant, the three victims said, and attacked the caller first. They described him throwing the appellant to the ground. With his left hand, he squeezed the caller’s throat while trying to hit them with his right hand.

The other two victims attempted to intervene, with one grabbing Vinson’s hand preventing him from hitting the first victim. Then Vinson refocused on the other two employees.

He first attacked a person who had been hiding under a table in the restaurant, according to court documents. But the person who grabbed him earlier was able to stop him again, this time as Vinson tried to lift the table the victim was hiding under.

At one point, Vinson grabbed the victim’s leg and attempted to drag her, the affidavit states.

Surveillance video of the incident, posted to Facebook by Mandarin House, appears to show Vinson entering one of the restaurant’s dining areas and standing over the first victim, who is already on the ground. The victim stands up and Vinson pushes her against a wall. After the three briefly leave the frame, the victim runs back through the dining room as Vinson follows them, then throws a chair in their direction.

A second video shows the incident from the other dining room. It shows Vinson shoving the first victim. He then returns and attempts to grab another victim, before returning to the other room to throw the chair away.

During the altercation, police reports indicate that Vinson destroyed two porcelain figurines inside the restaurant.

When officers entered the restaurant, Vinson’s attack stopped instantly.

Vinson later told officers he had a fight with his girlfriend, and when he saw someone staring at him, he “passed out” and couldn’t remember what happened. had passed between that moment and the arrival of the police.

The 911 caller, and first victim, told officers that Vinson pushed them so hard with both hands that they “flew backwards” and hit their heads on the ground. They said they were “extremely concerned” about their safety during the attack.

Officers described red marks on the victim’s neck in the affidavit.

Mandarin House posted a thank you to first responders who assisted with the incident on Facebook. The restaurant also released a brief description of the incident.

“We were all cleaning up, closing the restaurant! After chasing the male staff into the banquet hall, he came after the woman. She fell and (hid) under the table, screaming at the top of her voice as the attacker dragged her by the foot, at the same time Kevin pulled her away from her, (to) distract him so that she can run away.”

In addition to the charges related to that incident, Vinson was also charged with a felony for possession of counterfeit money and a misdemeanor for minor theft by deception, according to court records.

These charges stem from a March incident in which a person reported to police that a man she knew as Darrin Vensin used $620 in counterfeit $20 bills to buy an X Box.

The victim told officers that Vensin, the name the man used in a Facebook profile, had contacted him about the game console. They said Vensin had paid for the console, and that while they counted the bills at that time, they hadn’t realized the bills were counterfeit until they later realized they said “Motion Picture Purposes” on the front of the bill.

They said they tried to contact Vensin, saying they would not contact the police if he returned the console. But, the victim said, Vensin did not respond.

The victim provided officers with dashcam footage of the exchange and images of Vensin’s Facebook profile. Officers compared images of “Vensin” to Vinson and determined they were identical.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the console was pawned shortly after the incident.

Vinson is currently being held in Bannock County Jail on two separate bonds of $75,000 and $10,000. If he posts bond, no contact orders would also be issued, prohibiting him from any contact with victims of the alleged battery.

Although Vinson was charged with these crimes, that does not necessarily mean that he committed them. Everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

If convicted, Vinson could face up to 20 years in prison for battery with intent to murder, according to court records. He could also face up to 18 years combined for all other charges filed.

He is due in court for a preliminary hearing on all charges before Magistrate Judge Scott Axline on June 21.

Review and photos by Rick Russack

DEERFIELD, NH – Klia Ververidis Crisafulli brought her show from Brimfield North to Deerfield Fairgrounds over Memorial Day weekend, May 28-29. It was the second time the fair was held, it was even better than the first in 2021. The weather was perfect, there were over 350 spaces occupied by vendors and the event attracted over 8,000 attendees . The logistical problems encountered last year were easily eliminated by giving dealers two days to set up and using a second access road to the fairgrounds for the public. The first buyers were greeted both during Friday afternoon set-up and on Saturday morning before the big crowds entered. It was win-win for all. The fairgrounds are huge and dealers can set up in buildings or outdoors, with many taking advantage of the spaces under shady trees and the extra space allowed by the layout. The show was heavily promoted on social media, which may explain the diversity of participants. Most of the exhibitors we spoke with were from nearby towns in New Hampshire and had a few other exhibits.

As for the items available to shoppers, the response would be similar if they were asked to describe what might be found at a Brimfield show: “close to everything”. There were selected antiques, decorative objects and handicrafts. Vendors, many of whom had never done this show or any other show before, brought garden furniture and accessories, collectible bicycles, art pottery, mid-century furniture and accessories, toys vintage, vintage glassware and kitchenware, vintage clothing, rugs, folk art, works by self-taught artists, quilts and more. There were 15 food trucks. It’s a chicken or the egg question: does the eclectic selection of merchandise attract an eclectic crowd or is it the other way around? Whatever the answer, there were older buyers who easily mixed in with millennials and families with teenagers and young children – some of whom were already collectors.

WMUR, the Manchester ABC affiliate, filmed part of the event, calling it “New Hampshire’s largest antique fair and flea market”; a reasonable description. Crisafulli said: “We didn’t know they were coming. They probably saw our pre-show promotions and they just showed up at the door with their video camera.

“Make us an offer,” said the folks at Cobblestone Resale, Wakefield, NH, when asked for prices for the 50-odd pieces of art by self-taught artist Ron Fontaine. “All proceeds go to the local food pantry. It’s what Ron did while he was alive and it’s what he wanted us to do after he died of Covid about two months ago.

One booth, Cobblestone Resale, Wakefield, NH, had a very unusual group of metal and mixed media artwork by self-taught artist, Ron Fountain, and a very unusual way to sell it. Fountain, who recently died of Covid-19, lived in Wakefield, NH, and created and sold his work to benefit the local pantry and the Rochester (NH) Museum of Art. His works were made of found materials, most of which were recyclable and painted in bright colors. Fountain once described his work: “My creations from scrap metal and discarded materials stem from the early influence of growing up during the lean years of the Depression on a farm.” When asked how much the artworks sold for, Rose Baxter said: ‘We ask people to give us an offer – the most they can afford, and if that seems reasonable we sell it. All money, plus costs like booth rent, goes to the food bank. We also accept cash donations for the food bank.

After the salon was open for a few hours on Saturday morning, Baxter said it sold several pieces to people who had made offers and others were considering making “purchases”. Fountain’s work was exhibited at the Gaffney Museum, Sanbornton, NH, in 2011. She said they sold a few pieces – one for $50 – “because that’s what the person could afford.”

Business was done at the more traditional mansion by Beth and Patrick Heffernan, Walpole, NH It was the first show the couple had ever done. Most of their very colorful pewter ornaments and outdoor furniture were made in Mexico and were not old. You couldn’t miss the large painted pewter rooster, which was about 6 feet tall and cost $600. A smaller one was $150. When asked how the company got started, Beth replied, “We used to live in Texas, not far from Mexico, and we saw a lot of these creations. We recently moved to New Hampshire and decided to see if we could make a business of it by selling them. Everything is very colorful and well done and we get a good reaction.

Peter Gallant, Hometown Antiques, Bangor, Maine, priced the large colorful crocheted rug at $175. Tin magazines were $125 or $150 each.

A Manchester group store, Antiques on Elm – a short walk from the hotel which will host the New Hampshire Dealers Show in August – had a large stall filled with merchandise from their store. Included were stoneware, yellowish, fruit pots, dolls, vintage clothing and more. Don Peterson and his son Daniel were also trying out their first show. Dan has been collecting vintage bikes for about ten years and decided it was time to start selling some. He had a selection dating from around 1963 to 1990 and priced them between $75 and $125.

In a conversation with Chris and Lady G (she said her last name is unpronounceable so she uses Lady G) from Boston they said that in the last few years they had been to an event that we didn’t have never heard of: ‘The World’s Longest Yard Sale’, 690 miles long. They said it’s a four day event in August and runs along State Route 127 States from Michigan to Georgia and garage sales are held on both sides of the freeway and there are hundreds, if not thousands, of vendors moving in. He has his own website www. 127yardsale.com, named after the road it follows), and they said they met shoppers from as far away as California who came just for the event. farm equipment to antiques. You have to see it to believe it.” They’re probably right.

We mentioned that there are selected crafting vendors. One of them was George Merrill, Dry Dock Designs, Enfield, NH Merrill makes small decorative boats from found materials – wood, metals, etc. – and displays them as wall hangings. He’s been making them for about four or five years and started when he inherited a barn full of old wood and was thinking about what he could do with it. He is a member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and exhibited at their large craft show at Lake Sunapee in August 2021. Deerfield was his first antique show. His boats cost between $75 and $350, and business has been good since he was featured on the TV show. New Hampshire Chronicle a few weeks ago. After the show, he said he sold about ten boats.

Sage Farm Antiques, a monthly three-day market in North Hampton, NH with up to 40 dealers, uses one of the fairground buildings for its participating dealers. The patio set with a metal table and four chairs was priced at $225 by Ann Rowe, Wilmot, NH The sundial in the foreground was $185.

Crisafulli thinks, like many, that attracting young collectors is something that needs to be done. She imagined a unique program to interest the youngest of the show: a treasure hunt. Staff at the admissions desks, seeing that a family had young people with them, encouraged the young people and their families to participate in an “interactive scavenger hunt”, with prizes awarded to those who completed the assignments. Exhibitors have been informed of the program and have agreed to participate. The youth were given an instruction sheet that required them to visit ten booths, ask ten questions and take pictures. The instructions were similar to these examples:

1. Take a picture of a clock. Ask the seller what type of clock it is and when it was made.

2. Take a picture of your favorite vintage toy. Ask the seller when it was made.

3. Take a picture of your favorite object!

Between 30 and 40 children and families completed the hunt and received the prize, which was cotton candy from one of the food vendors.

Over 8,000 buyers attended the two-day show. This photo was taken mid-morning on the first day of the show. —Klia Ververidis Crisafulli photo

After the show, Crisafulli noted that the logistical changes made the event more enjoyable. “We heard a lot of positive feedback, and there were even emails, about how smooth the setup was. The extra time also allowed us to spend time with our new, mostly younger exhibitors. Some had never done a show before and we were able to help them with some basic advice I think it’s really important that we as show managers do it and the scavenger hunt was really fun for all the world and loved by our vendors. The social media and print media promotion we did really reached the people we wanted to reach. Last year was an experiment for us to see how this kind of show would be received The answer answers this question We will definitely be back next year and maybe we can do a show in the fall.

WHEN the Hawthorn is in flower, it’s time for the annual Limerick Fleadh Cheoil, which takes place over the June bank holiday weekend. Athea is the venue this year, and an action-packed program of events has been put on for traditional music lovers by the host Comhaltas branch. Many events will take place and if the sun is shining it promises to be a wonderful weekend. County Fleadh has been held there nine times since 1975, and in 2001 it was chosen to host the event in a very special year celebrating 50 years of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Eireann. 2019 was the last time the pretty village on the banks of the sinking Galey hosted the annual event. The river that flows beneath the magnificent footbridge has been immortalized in song and story by many writers, including the late Dan Keane. I quote the second verse of his composition entitled The Galey.
How many times on summer evenings does the burning beast mend
To drink the green-rimmed cup between Clash and Knockanare
Through the golden glades of gorse a gurgle with splashes of silver
Wild waters twittering west rush over Athea.

Athea is a pretty little village nestled at the bottom of a valley on the north side of the high Dromada ridge that stretches west from the direction of Ardagh. Only about two miles from the Kerry border. Athea stands at an important crossroads, where the road from Glin to Abbeyfeale intersects with the road from Rathkeale to Listowel. The name Athea generally derives from the Irish Ath an tSléibhe, which means “the ford of the high moor”.
In addition to being a village, Athéa is also a parish. Until relatively recent times, however, the parish was not known as Athea but as Rathronan. Rathronan was a huge parish comprising, according to Lewis (Topographical Dictionary of Ireland), 18,153 statutory acres. At the time of which Lewis speaks (1837), 1,000 acres of the parish were under cultivation. 5,000 acres were rich meadows and pastures, and the rest consisted of mountain pastures, plantations and turbary.
The land in the eastern part towards Ardagh-was, states Lewis “of good quality being based on a limestone substrate and producing excellent crops under a good system of cultivation”.
We do not know when the village of Athéa was born, but it appears on a land map of 1710. At that time it would be a very isolated village, located in a wild and largely inaccessible country. The road from Glin to Abbeyfeale, which now crosses it, was not yet built, and would not be for about 120 years. In fact, it was the construction of this road which was to prove to be the main factor in the development of Athea.
Athea was known for its athletes and two of them achieved worldwide fame. Dan Ahearne set a world record in the Hop Step and Jump event and won numerous titles in America. His younger brother Tim, a classy sprinter, hurdler and jumper, won an Olympic gold medal in the Hop Step and Jump event in London in 1908.
A focal point of the village is their community hall which is named after Con Colbert, one of the executed leaders of the 1916 uprising.
He was born in Monalena, Castlemahon but spent his youth in Athea. Irish President Erskine Childers officially opened it on January 20, 1974.
Famous people associated with Athea include author Kevin Danaher who worked for the Irish Folklore Commission collecting folklore and recording it in ten books. Maighréad Mc Grath a renowned historian who was at the forefront of promoting the whole story of Athea. Domhnall De Barra, former president of Comhaltas Ceoltoirí Eireann, and member of the current committee that organizes this year’s Fleadh. Timmy Woulfe author, set dancing teacher and former Limerick Gaelic footballer, referee and board member. Hotel owner Tom Moran Dublin (Red Cow) hails from Athea, which has a lovely footbridge named after Pope Paul II.
The plaque on the gangway reads:

Dedicated to the memory of Pope Paul II 1920-2005
Inaugurated on June 10, 2005 by Bishop Donald Murray DD

The village of Athea currently has enough to recommend it to visitors, who will flock in their thousands to enjoy its musical heritage this weekend. They can visit the Sentier des Fées and admire the mural frescoes. The Tidy town committee recently erected 20 place name signs around the village, and beyond which connect for a lovely walk.
There’s something about Athea as a place for a Fleadh, because it has an atmosphere of its own. This is largely due to the hospitality of the local people who know what a Fleadh is and make the visitor feel at home. They are proud to host the almost week-long festival which attracts people from all over the county and beyond. Enjoy the experience.

Irish Dresden
I NOW conclude the story of the Irish factory from Dresden to Dromcollogher from the last column. Irish political leaders have often presented Irish coins from Dresden to visiting dignitaries over the years. They have always been very well received, being quality gifts, showing Irish craftsmanship to good effect. Johanna was named International Businesswoman of the Year in 1987 and received the Veuve Clicquot award at a special luncheon at Trinity College Dublin. As part of her award, she was able to visit the Cliquot vineyards in Reims for a naming ceremony for a wine that bears her name. She appeared on the Late Late Show, which was massive recognition for her family factory and the people of Dromcollogher.
Due to the economic downturn which affected sales of many luxury goods, the factory closed in 2009 after a number of poor business years and the remaining dozen employees were laid off. After the liquidation, his daughter Sabina Best continued to work on the porcelain figurines in her garage, hoping to reopen again. It kept its business contacts and ties open and reopened in 2015 with a small team and new business partner Martin Crotty. The void she and her mother Johanna faced in 2009 had turned out of sheer stubbornness into hope for the future.
Johanna Saar died on Tuesday April 20, 2021. She was a pioneer in a male-dominated world who paved the way for other businesswomen in Ireland. She was much loved and highly respected for almost 60 years by the people of Dromcollogher. She was buried in St. Nicholas Cemetery in Adare, far from her birthplace in East Germany. The success story continues with Sabina at the helm and Long Time Irish Dresden continues to produce beautiful porcelain figurines.

In a new survey of garden trends, garden gnomes have been named the most in-demand with over a million searches on Google and nine million views on TikTok

Garden gnomes top the list with the top 10 running:

Garden gnomes have been crowned the biggest garden trend for this year, rising from fifth place in last year’s survey.

The retro trend has seen nine million views on TikTok and a 10.8% increase in Google search over the past two years.

Urban gardening takes second place. The trend is to grow produce in places such as balconies and window sills, creating a garden with less space.

Urban gardening had the most Instagram posts in the study, with 1.9 million posts on the platform. The trend also recorded 25 million views on TikTok, the fourth highest in the overall study.

Households had the most TikTok views with 355.5 million views on the platform. Pergolas were also trending on the platform, earning 43.1 million TikTok views.

Garden shower curtains saw the biggest increase in Google search in the study, with a 60.9% increase over the past two years, after the trend of using a shower curtain to decorate exploded on social networks.

Organic closes also followed, with a 53.5% increase in Google searches.

A garden gnome – also known as a lawn gnome – is a figurine of a small humanoid creature, usually wearing a tall, pointed red hat.

Gnomes are believed to protect the owner from harm.

The figurines originated in Germany in the 19th century and were called Gartenzwerg, which literally translates to “garden gnome”. It was not until the 1930s that the English term “gnome” appeared.

Many of us would point to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Noddy’s pal Big Ears as the gnomes we know best.

The term Gnomes or Noldoli was used in JRR Tolkien’s early work, The Book of Lost Tales, to describe the race of Elves that would become the Ñoldor. Tolkein also wrote The Hobbit with Bilbo Baggins.

There are many types of garden gnomes. They appear in different positions and can be made from different types of materials.

Typically, gnomes are male dwarfs with long, bushy white beards who wear tall, pointed red hats.

They may be smoking – or holding – a pipe. They are seen in various positions including standing, lying down, sitting, etc. and they engage in various activities – fishing, sleeping, digging and pushing wheelbarrows.

Garden gnomes can be made of wood, porcelain, ceramic or terracotta.

Garden gnomes were first introduced to the UK when Sir Charles Isham returned from his holiday in Germany and brought 21 of the terracotta figurines with him, displaying them around his house and lawn at Lamport Hall, Northampton in 1847.

Nicknamed ‘Lampy’, the only surviving gnome from the original batch is on display at Lamport Hall and insured for £1million.

See The Guest of Lladró, an iconic sculptural masterpiece of the modern era https://thedreamsicles.com/see-the-guest-of-lladro-an-iconic-sculptural-masterpiece-of-the-modern-era/ Wed, 01 Jun 2022 07:42:10 +0000 https://thedreamsicles.com/see-the-guest-of-lladro-an-iconic-sculptural-masterpiece-of-the-modern-era/ Ten years ago, renowned Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon designed The Guest, a sculptural masterpiece that has become Lladró’s most captivating character.

Ten years ago, renowned Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon designed The Guest, a sculptural masterpiece that has become Lladró’s most captivating character.

A multi-faceted work of art, The Guest has since been an inspirational blank canvas for famous artists of different nationalities to tell their stories through iconographic languages.

Jaime started the collection with a focus on craftsmanship, drawing inspiration from his personal experiences. His repertoire includes the design of numerous pieces of furniture, shoes, watches, lighting, art installations, ceramics and other home accessories. Named one of the 100 most important designers of our time by Times magazine, Jaime’s groundbreaking vision blurs the lines between art, decor and design. The Madrid artist speaks through The Guest, winking at the themes historically favored by Lladró, such as love and childhood.

Ricardo Cavolo’s guest

Pushing the boundaries with a subtle sense of humor, Jaime finds his creative spark ignited by Lladró’s unique craftsmanship. “I wanted to be part of the evolution of the company; my intention was never a revolution. For several generations, its craftsmen have acquired the mastery of an art and techniques. My task was to add that extra contemporary touch,” he explains.

Artists influenced by the Lladró craftsmen’s passion for detail include Tim Biskup, Devilrobots, Gary Baseman, Rolito, Paul Smith and many more. Each brings to the table new concepts, designs and colors on the same canvas. Through inspired collaborations, each creates irreverent yet distinguished figurines that have become icons of the 21st century.

“Today, the ability of art to make us dream, imagine, reflect and even aspire is really important. Artistic explorations testify more and more to this particular way of projecting oneself into realities that move us and make us feel,” shares Jaime. The guest reflects his desire to demonstrate that tradition is open to experimentation and can lead to unexpected and singularly original conceptual paths.

In The Guest project, there is something exceptional that appeals to everyone. American artist Tim Biskup expresses his vision of a “populist aesthetic”, playing with patterns of skulls and raindrops in connection with nature. Conversely, the Japanese design team Devilrobots uses cheerful colors, polka dots and stripes with the purity of black to create fun, emotive and extravagant expressions in keeping with their expertise in toy design.

Meanwhile, eclectic artist Gary Baseman lends his “adorably perverted” vision to creating beautifully bizarre otherworldly iterations of The Guest that are certain to serve as iconic conversation starters in any space. of life. Rolito’s guest imagines a superhero of the night, protecting sleepers and warding off nightmares with his trusty sidekick. The celebrated French designer and illustrator borrowed inspiration for the concept from his young son to interpret the statuesque pair with a comforting grip.

British designer Paul Smith took a different approach. “These are pieces I would love to have in my home. Upbeat, fun, cheerful, full of color and humor is what makes them Forge“, mentions the creator. Sprinkled with confetti and covered in cat and dog masks, Smith’s whimsical expressions blend tradition and modernity with ease. “Each one is created and painted by hand in the Lladró workshops in Valencia, which is increasingly unusual in our computerized and mechanized world,” concludes Paul.

Lladró’s cooperative effort with international artists is nothing short of extraordinary. Porcelain experts navigate their own unique artisanal processes through close collaboration, drawing on nearly 70 years of in-depth knowledge as decorators and craftsmen working materials by hand, from chemistry to modelling, carving, relief, engraving and painting. Age-old craftsmanship and techniques remain alive, transforming porcelain into delicate, fun, elegant and groundbreaking works of art. The artisanal process behind The Guest, with the countless steps involved, proves how rewarding and fruitful the tandem of contemporary design and traditional endeavors is.

“Understanding, appreciating and learning from craftsmanship has always been a crucial element of my work, which is a mixture of tradition and culture. To preserve this source of learning, it is necessary to combine it with design, in view to advance craft techniques and contextualize their value in the present,” says Jaime.

Aimed at those with sophisticated tastes and a deep appreciation for enduring and modern artistic expressions, Lladró is ready to share its artisan wonders with a new generation of Malaysians.

Debbie wanted to sell her late husband’s valuables in the first episode. He was a world traveler and the couple were married for 40 years before they died. It was only obvious from his items in the house that the items would have a high value.

Among the items found by host Lara Spencer and her team was the South African Krugerrand. These are gold coins that the Republic of South Africa minted in 1967 to help promote the country’s gold in international markets and make it valuable to an individual.

Krugerrands are one of the most traded gold coins in the world. The face of the coins bears the image of Paul Kruger, who was President of the Republic of South Africa from 1883 to 1900. The name of the coins comes from the combination of Paul Kruger’s surname with the “rand”, the national currency from South Africa.

The reverse of the coins depicts a galloping Springbok antelope, which is one of the national symbols of South Africa. In 1970, the country was the largest gold producer in the world, with over 75% of the world’s gold reserves to its credit. Throughout this period, Kruggerand became the first choice for gold investors.

There were also music boxes and old instruments from when her husband’s sister went to Julliard, copper utensils and a Louis Vuitton bag.

The episode’s official synopsis reads:

“A woman’s home is filled to the brim with the collections she inherited from both her parents and her late husband; Lara and her team arrive to rescue her from this crushing burden and find enough money to fund a family trip in the process.”
