Inside Story

on BBC Two England

The Cupboard of Crug-y-Bar
The true story of a valuable period piece, sold for a song by its owner, and for a lot of money by the time it reached its final resting place.
The cupboard was spotted in the outhouse of a Welsh farm by an itinerant buyer, who recognised an antique under the cobwebs and layers of paint. It moved from dealer, to restorer, to dealer. After four months it has changed hands five times, travelled 3,500 miles, and risen in price well over six times the amount it made in a shed in Crug-y-Bar.
