How much is your vase worth?
“A rare vase from the Imperial collection of the Chinese Emperor Qianlong, which has remained in a private Japanese collection for almost a century, will lead the upcoming fall sale of Sotheby’s Hong Kong, the auction house announced Friday.
Although Sotheby’s has yet to assess the value of the vase, it is said to be the pair to the famous Bainbridge vase sold for £43 million in an U.K. auction in 2010.” (Barron’s)
Even with the recent appreciation of the dollar that is still the equivalent of $55 million.
And quite recently, an 18th century vase discovered in an attic in France was sold for $14 million.
Might be worth checking your attic.
