It was brought to England over 100 years ago, and bought by a lawyer, who passed it on to his daughter-in-law.

An auctioneer discovered the rarity when he visited the homes of elderly owners as they prepared to move.

The celadon bowl is decorated with sprays of pomegranate, peach, and cloth.

It had a pre-sale estimate of £30,000 but went for £160,000.

The total cost brought the total cost to £204,000.

Expert Dan Bray, among Gorringe’s auctioneers in Lewes, East Sussex, “I don’t think the owners realize how important it is.

“The telltale sign is Qianlong Seal mark above and below.

“It has been beautifully drawn, unlike the reigning marks you might find on later copies.

“Desire and value for Chinese antiques has been really successful in the past 15 years due to the purchasing power of local collectors. ”
