LONDON: A long-forgotten sugar vase that used to sell for just dollar 56 has now been reunited with a house and has recently been auctioned off for 90 million dollar, in Pakistani rupees for more than Rs 1.5 billion.
This is a masterpiece vase found in a house in Europe where dogs and cats were roaming free and they had this vase but coincidentally it was safe from any kind of damage. The vase has been in the house for the past 50 years. The elderly woman living here was not aware of its importance.
The vase dates back to the reign of King Qianlong, who ruled China for half a century. The vase is unique in every way, with blue and white floral designs on the whole body.
The well-known auction house, Sotheby’s, has described it as an “extremely delicate vase” and a masterpiece that has survived among countless pets. Sotheby’s describes it as a treasure that historians themselves have sought.
It was probably built between 1742 and 1743. According to historians, this delicate work was supervised by the royal glass maker Tang Ying. Every work of this glass maker has the status of a masterpiece. However, it was not immediately clear from which country the auction was held. All that is said is that the woman who had it was in the 80’s and she used this vase as a sign of her father.
