Owners of a porcelain bowl that sat on their shelf for years were 'shocked and delighted' to find it was a rare 18th century Chinese antique worth more than £200,000. While clearing out to downsize their home the owners had an auctioneer in Bath, Somerset, look at the piece, uncovering it's regal heritage. Dating from between 1722 to 1735 the rare bowl was found to be from the reign of the Chinese Emperor Yongzheng. Is it even remotely possible that its worth spending hard cash on such an object?
