ANTIQUES Roadshow fans were left spooked after a guest revealed a ‘creepy’ family inheritance tradition – and some even branded her a ‘devil child’.
Sunday’s edition of the BBC show saw a lady present an antique scent bottle for valuation.
The bottle had been made in England in the 1830s or 1840s and its top as made of 18-carat gold.
The lady then revealed her family had already decided who will get their parents belongings after they are gone.
She said: “In our family, we have pink and blue dots for anything that we are going to inherit from our parents.
“The pink dot means the girls get it and the blue dot means the boys get it.
“This scent bottle is going to be a pink dot.”
The scent bottle was valued at £2,500, which surprised the guest as she said: “I thought [it was worth] £50.”
However, some viewers were horrified by what the guest had said.
One wrote on Twitter: “A bit of a creepy business going about your folks house placing blue or pink dots on stuff, divvying up your inheritance in the presence of your parents.”
Another tweeted: “Pink and blue dots? She seemed very happy about it too, I’ll have a think on what I think about that.”
A third added: “Another devil child!!”
Antiques Roadshow airs on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer.
