Qing Dynasty Vase
An English brother and sister were cleaning out the family attic when they found a 16-inch vase dating to the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1735 to 1796). It sold at auction in 2010 for $69.5 million to an unnamed Chinese buyer—according to New York Times, it was the highest price ever paid at auction for a Chinese antiquity. It was such a distinction for the suburban auction house, Bainbridges of Ruislip, that they incorporated the vase into their logo. (Courtesy of Bainbridges Auctions) less
