At “Cash for Rares‘ one or the other long-forgotten sweetheart reappeared. But a find like the one shown on Instagram is anything but commonplace even with “Bares for Rares”.

But what happened? Let’s jump back to the year 1850. It so happened in Rotterdam that the painting “In Rembrandt’s Studio” by Abraham van Pelt was exhibited. But then the picture disappeared without a trace. Until now. Because at “Cash for Rares‘ suddenly reappeared.

A sensation. “In a way, we’re writing history,” expert Friederike Werner was completely overwhelmed. How did the picture get to the seller? Not clear. Saleswoman Dorothea only revealed that she got the picture from her husband. He, in turn, got it from his mother.


This is the show “Cash for Rares“:

  • “Bares for Rares” has been running on ZDF since 2013 and is also available in the media library
  • The moderator is Horst Lichter
  • There is a fixed pool of traders and experts
  • Contestants can sell their rarities on the show
  • Registration is online
  • Fake allegations have been raised again and again. They could always be refuted


But anyone who now thinks that the picture is worth millions is wrong. According to Friederike Werner, the picture is worth 2,000 to 3,000 euros. But the saleswoman didn’t want to sell it to the dealers so urgently and considered donating it to a museum.

In the end there was a compromise. “I would take care of it, I would clean it and I would also put it in a good collection,” promised “Bares for Rares” dealer Daniel Meyer. The seller then agreed and sold the picture for 2,500 euros.

In any case, the spectators were enthusiastic. “It’s obviously something really special. Must be a great feeling to experience something like that,” writes a viewer, for example. And another adds on Instagram: “Sensational expertise from Dr. Werner! Sensational painting! I had goose bumps.”
