BBC's Antiques Show unearthed a Fabergé piece estimated to be worth around £1million ($1.27 million).

To a shocked audience, the appraisal of the rare piece came from jewelry expert Geoffrey Munn during a taping at Black Country Living Museum in the West Midlands. At nearly 4 inches tall, the work is a flower study in a crystal vase.

Executive producer Simon Shaw said: “We’ve had one of the most significant jewellery finds in 40 years of Antiques Roadshow history.”
