The Strange and Fascinating World of Antiques

The annual Irish Antique Dealers' Association Fair starts today and continues all weekend at the RDS in Dublin, with collectibles and art on sale from Ireland's leading dealers.

Takes a look back here at the antiques trade in 1960s Dublin, with a clip from a 'Discovery' special. Reporter Brian Cleeve delves into "the strange and fascinating world of antiques", where "one man's rubbish is another man's dream". He asks the father of Dublin's antique trade, Harry Wine for advice on collecting antiques and looks at a number of examples, from a Queen Anne teapot in Wine's shop to crockery on display at the Iveagh Market.

'Discovery: Antiques' was broadcast on 23 June 1964.
