« on: Yesterday at 06:28:29 PM »
"An "extremely rare" 18th Century Chinese vase bought in the 1980s for a few hundred pounds and kept in a kitchen has sold for 1,449,000.

The 2ft (60cm) blue-glazed, silver and gilt vase was created for the court of the Qianlong Emperor.

Decorated with cranes and bats, it had been estimated to sell at auction for between 100,000-150,000."
