Crossed Swords
18 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Harold lets his greed and cunning get the better off him. He comes across a valuable porcelain figurine which is confirmed as a genuine Meissen. The antiques dealer offers him two hundred and fifty pounds on the spot for it.

Harold reckons he could get more at an auction and decides to do just that. Trouble is both Harold and Albert try to hike up the auction bids and things go a bit awry as they are in danger of bidding against each other.

An episode which shows Harold is not always satisfied with what he has got and you wince at his desperation at the auction as other bidders drop off.
