Angela Milner-Brown and her husband Angus had no idea that they would find a fortune that would last them a lifetime. It’s hard to believe but an old dusty chair handed this UK couple a fortune of monstrous proportions!
Bought some ten years ago, the chair cost them 5 pounds (Rs 441) but it held treasures worth – hold your breath – 5000 pounds! That’s nearly Rs 4,41,454!
The couple who hails from Scotland, kept the chair in their attic for six years as they didn’t have the means to get it renovated.
But when they did, they didn’t expect to find jewels worth its estimated cost. “But a few years back my husband surprised me with a diamond ring for our wedding anniversary. He’d found it hidden down inside the chair. The following Valentine’s Day, he gave me a pair of diamond earrings and then a diamond broach at Easter. They must have been hidden inside the chair by previous owners. We just couldn’t believe it,” Angela told The Telegraph.
Angus kept the find a secret in the name of love. He used the treasure to celebrate their life milestones that they hold dear.
The couple had their chair and its sprouting jewels estimated at the The BBC’s Antiques Roadshow in New Lanark.
