Chinese vase valued at €800 sells for €1.2m at Irish auction – The Irish Times

A Chinese vase was the surprise lot in a Sheppards auction on Friday when it sold for 1.2million. The 54cm tall Chinese Celado, which had been valued at 800-1,200, was sold by auctioneer Michael Sheppard during the Castlehyde two-day sale at their Durrow Auction house. However, the vase was not part of the contents of dancer and artist Michael Flatleys Castlehyde home, but was an additional lot in the sale.
The vase bears the six character mark of Yong Zheng (1723-1735), part of the Qing Dynasty.
