A CHINESE VASE BOUGHT FOR $1 WOULD HAVE A VALUE OF UP TO $100 A GRAM
The vase was purchased at a retail store in Hertfordshire, England, to an unknown buyer, who unassumingly mentions the vase on eBay, the Daily Mail previously reported. From the start of a whole series of questions about the buyer, the small yellow vase was very valuable and took it with me to Sworders, Fine Art Auctioneers, said the buyer was, in fact, made for the emperor.
To the family of roos, it is to be seen at the base, which shows that it is not to be exported, but rather is positioned in one of the palaces of the emperor.
The catalog description of the vase, notice that is pear-shaped and is flanked by a pair of ruyi handles, the waisted neck. The 8-inch-high vase has an inscription on it which reads as follows: “Weijing weiyi,” which means, “it’s just, being in a co-ownership.”
Don’t know the meaning, the shopper is listed in the yellow florally decorated vase on e-bay to see if it would be worth it to have everything, only to be inundated with messages and offers. The realization of the pear-shaped vase, which is designed to be mounted on a wall, it needs to be valuable, it will be removed from the offer to the site, and took it with me to the specialists at Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers in Stansted Mountfitchet, Essex.

There is also an inscription on it, with an imperial poem, and two iron-red seal marks that is to say “Qianlong chen han”, or, “the Qianlong Emperor’s personal brand,” the e-Mail.
Yexue Li, head of the department of Asian art at Sworders, said on Fox News that the inscription on it makes it to the vase, “special.”
“It’s the icing on the vase, is particularly interesting because of the use of the yangcai (foreign) e-mail, on a yellow ground, a color traditionally reserved for the emperor,” Li said in a September interview with Fox News. “This is a high quality vase, in that the court, in order that, so that it would be of high value when it was made. It’s very exciting, and we’ve had a lot of interest already.”
