Become at "Cash for rares" Extras used?

Instead, they are asked to bring their own items to be recorded. If someone has nothing with them, the prop steps in and equips them with an object. "These items are rented from various outfitters and are not used for sales or expertise" assures the sender.

How are the objects selected for the show?

Anyone who would like to sell a rarity in the show can apply. This can be done either online or by post. Here, too, the rush is huge: "Between 500 and 1,000 applications are received every week. The applicants go through a thorough and extensive selection process with the aim of getting a meaningful picture of the seller and the objects on offer" it says from the station. The selection team will be supported by several art historians.

When do the dealers see the objects for the first time?

Dealers see the objects on the day of recording "in the dealer room in front of the camera for the first time" assures the sender.

Carsten Corbach, a used car expert from Leverkusen, brings a figure made of Meissen porcelain "Cash for rares". "A little monkey, a drum carrier" he says after a brief greeting from presenter Horst Lichter and adds: "The figure should – I hope Albert confirms this – be from 1935." 

Expert Maier offends salespeople

This rapid start amazes even lights: "My God, we’re already in the middle of the expertise." Then art and antiques expert Albert Maier took the floor: "This is totally wrong" he exclaims, literally offending the 54-year-old. "Then I have to start with the explanation right away" says Maier to Lichter. This only replies: "Get in, it’s taking a whole new turn here!"

Maier points to the Bossierer brand "190" under the porcelain figure. "Behind it is a small ‘l’, which means year of manufacture 1990" explains the expert. Lights can hardly believe it: "1990 – not 1890?" he asks again. "Horst, that’s clear" answers Maier. "That surprises me now" admits seller Corbach. "Me too" Lights agrees with him.

Note: A boss builds larger models from prefabricated model parts. He is also called a porcelain designer and must be the "Handwriting" of the original model maker.

"The old model numbers were also completely different in 1935" adds Maier. Still, the figure is interesting. "Of course, Meissen’s little ‘kettledrum’ is a very original story. For that I have to come back to the designer. It was the most famous there was in Meißen: Johann Joachim KÄNDER. He lived from 1706 to 1775 and modeled the monkey orchestra with 21 figures in 1753" he knows. The designs therefore date from this time and have been re-manufactured to this day.

Expertise on rare object

Now, however, Lichter would like to know from Corbach how he came to the conclusion that the figure must be from 1935. "My brother-in-law bought it at the flea market. Actually, I always thought he knew about such things and that’s why we assumed the year 1935. What we do know is that the drum carrier is rather rare" explains the 54-year-old. Maier can confirm that, however.

When Horst Lichter asks about the desired price, Corbach answers: "I had a dream, if it was possible after 1935, between 600 and 1,000 euros. But now I’m curious to see what the 1990s will be worth." Maier, who knows the current price situation, estimates the figure at 500 to 600 euros. "That’s the lowest limit, but it’s okay" finds Corbach and gets the dealer’s card from Lichter.

Different asking prices

Antique dealer Fabian Kahl first examines the figure in the dealer’s room with a UV lamp to determine its condition. But he cannot see any defects. Art and antiques dealer Daniel Meyer then offers 240 euros for the monkey and explains when the seller’s joy is limited: "First of all, I get a price offer of 200 to 220 euros for such an object in the shop. I don’t have to do that, neither do you – neither do we. But that is what is currently in the mind as an asking price. I also think it’s worth more."
