Treasure Blog: Lost Van Dyck Painting

It was brought in to the UK Antiques Roadshow and identified as possibly genuine by the host, Fiona Bruce.

Value after restoration is £400,000 or higher. Pic:

The painting was owned by a priest, who wishes to use profits from the sale to purchase new bells for his church. A worthy use, although UK being UK, I'd imagine that his local government entity will step in and stop the bells ringing when somebody - - an atheist or Muslim, probably - - complains about the "noise" from the bells ringing.
