Found in a shoebox... a 14m Qing vase!
« on: June 12, 2018, 06:13:56 PM »
I bet there's not one of these in any of my shoeboxes!

Chinese vase found in shoebox sells for 14m...

"An 18th Century Chinese vase, left for decades in a shoebox in France, has sold for 16.2m euros (14.2m).

The vase was auctioned at Sotheby's in Paris on Tuesday and sold for more than 20 times its estimated guide price - 500,000 to 700,000 euros.

It's the highest price ever reached for a single item sold by Sotheby's in France."
