Chinese porcelain bowl fetches 220,000 at auction!

The blue and white bowl was taken to an auctioneer in Bath by its owner as they prepared to move house.

Experts realised it was extremely rare and dated from the reign of the Chinese Emperor Yongzheng (1722-1735).

The bowl was given an estimate of 20,000-30,000 but sold to a Chinese buyer for 220,000.
Cheers!
