Antiques valuation

AN antiques expert will be visiting Lavenham for an Antiques Roadshow-style valuation day later this month.

Curtis Dowling, who has more than 20 years experience in the antiques trade, will be at The Swan Hotel, on November 22, to cast his eye over people’s collectable and valuable items.

As well as giving his opinion on values, Mr Dowling will also be advising those in attendance on how to spot fakes and forgeries and offering top tips on what to be wary of.

The event includes a two-course lunch and glass of wine and is priced at £35.95 per person.

To book a place call The Swan on 01787 247477.
