Antiques roadshow makes its way to Armadale

In this antiques roadshow, 430 lots of prized sculpture, furniture, art, textiles and religious icons valued at $1.5 million travelled from Sydney to Melbourne in containers along the Hume Highway destined for our collecting capital, Armadale.

That was some logistical feat given that an 18th-century stone and forged wrought-iron water well from France weighed 928 kilograms and is worth up to $10,000.
