The previous owner of a 300 year old vase that was found during a house clearance in North Yorkshire didn't realise its value, and had to be persuaded to sell it. The antique, originally from China, fetched £2.6m when it was sold yesterday but the heirloom could have easily end up smashed.
The auctioneer responsible for selling the vase says the previous owner's cat knocked it over on more than one occasion, and they were so oblivious to its value, they would allow children to play football in the same room.
