'World's Most Expensive' Paperweight in St Ives
3:11pm 31st December 2012
It has been claimed that a paperweight which has sat on a Cornish headteacher's desk for years, could be the most expensive in the world.
Staff at St Ives school took the bronze sculpture onto the Antiques Roadshow.
Experts said the Barbara Hepworth design could be worth up to £80,000
Retiring Headteacher David Harris, said: "It is something which we're very proud of. I did take it into the staff briefing the other day. That was quite exciting for colleagues to see it. There again, eighty thousand pounds worth of bronze sculpture there in front of them.
"I think the first reaction was to call security, because they were shocked that a Hepworth had turned up. So yes, they were excited by it and there has been alot of interest from the artistic side of things."
