Episode Summary

Walthamstow Town Hall 2
The Antiques Roadshow returns to Waltham Forest Town Hall in east London. Fiona Bruce welcomes viewers with a celebration of designer William Morris, exploring the inspiration for his Arts and Crafts style and his passion for politics. Finds include an Art Deco pendant that may have been constructed around an ancient Egyptian scarab beetle more than three thousand year old and a Chinese enamel box discovered amongst a 20p car-boot haul. Specialist Mark Hill raises an eyebrow at a vintage cigarette advert describing the benefits of smoking and a young couple show off a collection of turn-of-the-century tiles they found behind a chimney. A visiting Chelsea pensioner wonders whether he should swap his impressive collection of belt buckles for a cruise. The show also provides two fascinating glimpses of World War I from the German perspective, including a neck purse that saved a soldier's life and a stunning collection of spiky pickelhaube helmets and uniforms.
