A tiny "teapot" found during a lockdown clear-out has sold for £390,000 at auction.
The object, a Chinese wine ewer that may have belonged to an emperor, was found in Derbyshire by the 51-year-old as he went through boxes in a garage.
It was expected to fetch between £20,000 and £40,000 but instead sold for more than the average house.

Funny old world innit. Hansons have had a very large sale over 4 days.I was interested in a very large pot that was obviously Richard Batterham (its quality stuck out like a sore thumb!). They had not identified it, nor was there a condition report. On the auction day last week, their broadband failed, and they had to fo the auction on mobile phones. Anyways, Batterham went for £490. I dunno if it an auction house I would use tho.
