The 18th-century Chinese flower pot was auctioned off for 1.5 million. The vessel received the amount at an auction held on Wednesday by the Druveets Company in Newbury, Berks, England.

Rarely smooth blue, the vessel is engraved with figures of bats and bats.

The vessel is made by heating three times at a temperature of 1200 degrees. It is two feet high.

This Chinese vessel, which is decorated with a mixture of gold and silver, is believed to date back to the reign of Qianlong. The period 1736 – 1795 is recorded on the bottom of the vessel.

The vase was purchased by a British scientist in the 1980s from a Chinese man for less than 100. It was passed on to his son after his death.

But his son, who did not understand the value of this Chinese pot, kept it in the kitchen. Recently, an archaeologist who noticed the pot told him of its value. The edge of the bowl was slightly cracked and no other damage was done to it.

Auctioneer Mark Newstedt said that people from all over the world came forward for this Chinese pot and that’s why this rare flower pot got such a high price.
