The captivating idea that there could be treasure lying in wait in a neglected attic or garage is underpinned by discoveries such as these. Recently, Paul Fraser Collectibles reported on the successful sale of an impressive collection of 17th century furniture that was similarly discovered during a house clearance, while an original condition "barn-find" Aston Martin is to cross the block at Bonhams on May 18.
