If you believe in destiny and miracle, you will surely connect with this real life story, when a man in the UK recently found a vintage Chinese ‘Teapot’, during garage cleanup at the time of Coronavirus lockdown.
The UK man was dusting up in a Midlands garage when he found the imperial possession and was clueless of the real worth.


In a tweet, the Hanson Auctions UK has mentioned that the 18th-century Beijing-enamelled flask which resembles a teapot is worth tens of thousands and is also estimated that the 15cm piece of art is a priceless possession.

I cant match that sort of value for a teapot,but here`s a little true story.

In I953 I was based in the Hong Kong, New Territories for a couple of years.

During that time I met a fairly well off Chinese lady and we had a long frienship, when the time came to say goodbye she gave a Chinese Tea pot.

It stayed around the house for about 50 years and I posted a picture on the internet to get some data about it .

A Chinese fella living in Hong Kong came back to me with an offer I could not refuse.

So having brought it back to dear old Blighty and having it in a glass cabinet,it was sent on its way back to Hong Kong.

Keep safe Folks,
