When the seller hears the high appraisal of a brooch, he seems very surprised. So are there any doubts?

That has never been the case with “Bares for Rares”: the seller of a brooch had not expected such a high appraisal. When the expert Dr. Heide Rezepa-Zabel named the sum, he became unsure: Is his girlfriend’s piece of jewelry perhaps too valuable to sell?

“Who is it from?” Horst Lichter asked Thorsten from Michelstadt. “It’s from my friend’s aunt. She got it from her grandmother and you don’t know exactly where it came from,” replied the electrical engineer.

Therefore there was no personal connection to the object. “If nobody wants them, they would like to give them to someone who can do more with them.” The aunt’s desired price was 300 euros.

“A vine leaf is clearly visible,” the expert interpreted the frame. “Its tips turn red, and that is beautifully rendered here in the form of red transparent enamel.”

A panicle with natural pearls as grapes lay on the leaf. “Very attractive,” said Rezepa-Zabel. “Very, very beautifully and subtly designed.” The goldsmith’s work dates back to 1850. “Wow!” whispered Thorsten and Horst Lichter at the same time.

The jewelery box provided information about the origin: “Judging by the name and the quality, this could be Richard Nille, a court jeweler for the Stuttgart court.”

“Very attractive, very old, worked perfectly” – according to the expert, that should be worth at least 800 to 1,000 euros. “Wow,” Thorsten swallowed. “First I have to consult whether I’m allowed to sell it at all!”

“God, that’s the first one who has to consult because it has become too expensive,” laughed Horst Lichter. After a conversation with his girlfriend, Thorsten announced: He can sell “because it’s better off in hands that appreciate it.”

“That’s nice,” Wolfgang Pauritsch took a close look at the brooch. “These are old-cut diamonds and rose-cut diamonds. This is purely manual work. Insanity!”

“We are overwhelmed by this extremely beautiful piece,” Pauritsch (fourth from left) greeted the seller. “It’s a showpiece!” Julian Schmitz-Avila (right) also expressed “extreme interest”. But the bids stagnated at 600 euros.

That’s why Pauritsch got the brooch for 650 euros. “Better someone who appreciates them than in our closet at home,” Thorsten gladly accepted the money. In any case, she was in good hands with Pauritsch: “I’ve seen a lot of brooches, but these: Wow!”

The endoscope with accessories from the 1960s and an estimated price of 100 to 120 euros was also offered in the Monday edition of “Bares for Rares”.

The seller hoped for more than 100 euros. However, no one wanted to pay. So she decided to donate her endoscope to a museum.

Elke Velten (right) invested 1,100 euros: “If I have them refurbished, then I’ll take before and after pictures to see how great it looks.”

Sven Deutschmanek (right) estimated these six Bofinger designer chairs from the period between 1964 and 1984 at between 300 and 420 euros.

Since nobody wanted to bid anymore, Christian Vechtel got the chairs for 300 euros.

The two gold bracelets with diamonds from the 1950s were valued at between 3,000 and 3,200 euros.

Elke Velten bought the pieces of jewelry for 2,850 euros, just over gold value.

This oil painting on cardboard by Ernst Kolbe from 1908 showed the blue room in the Friesenhaus in Keitum on Sylt. Colmar Schulte-Goltz estimated the value at 1,200 to 1,500 euros.

Wolfgang Pauritsch (third from left) was only just below the maximum rating with 1,450 euros.
