Lonely 80-year-old woman from the County of greater Manchester in England brought the dealer my old Chinese vase that was given to her by parents and almost 40 years served as an umbrella stand. Grandma wanted to get a little bit of money on the treatment, but did not expect that old broken vase will bring her a fortune. And that’s exactly what happened.
Experts immediately determined that it was a valuable specimen vase XIX century, created for the Chinese Emperor Unyana decorated with traditional pattern and handles in the form of dragons.
True, at first it was estimated too high due to chipping and distressed appearance.
Buyer from China offered a vase 125 thousand dollars. This pensioner did not expect.
