• Dealers Go Hysterical For Antique Dildo on Four Rooms

    Antique Dildo on Four Rooms

    Channel 4's Four Rooms is not your usual antiques programme, and last night alongside the score from Psycho and the chair J K Rowling sat on while she wrote Harry Potter, was an antique dildo dating from 1893. It stumped the group at first, till antiques dealer Celia Sawyer explained, "it's a dildo... quite a small one."

    Complete with a US patent and a hollow centre for hot or cold water, this steel dildo is the ancestor of modern metal dildos and glass dildos used for sensory play.

    A hand-me-down from her grandmother, the seller had high hopes of selling the dildo-cum-heirloom for a whopping £4,000. But alas, her resolve was not as steely as her dildo, as Jeffrey Salmon's offer of £1,111.11 was accepted - and sealed with a kiss! (No tongues though.)

    Unfortunately, the deal was done before Gordon Watson could get a look in. Perhaps an unlikely admirer of the dildo, he said, "every fibre of my being, every single nerve-ending is ready to do whatever it takes to get the piece." Despite being "not quite my thing" Gordon Watson would have offered £3000, as a client of his is Belgium's largest collector of dildos.

    Now, that's someone we'd like to meet...
