    【雙語新聞】

    A tiny teapot-shaped antique, discovered in a garage in England during a lockdown clear-out, sold for £390,000 Thursday, after its owner took it to an auctioneer for a free valuation.

    有人在英格蘭的一個車庫里清理出了一件茶壺形狀的小件古董,之后將它拿到一個拍賣行免費估價,并最終以39萬英鎊(約合人民幣342萬元)的價格成交。

     

    Described by British auction house Hansons as the "find of the year," the item was identified as a rare 18th-century wine vessel - known as a ewer - that carries the mark of China's Qianlong Emperor.

    這件小古董被英國拍賣行漢森稱為"年度最佳發現"。它被鑒定為18世紀的一種罕見酒器,也被稱為執壺,上面還印有中國乾隆皇帝的印章。

     

    Weighing just 362 grams, the enamel and copper antique is decorated with a floral motif and features a small handle and spout.

    這件古董重362克,由搪瓷和銅制成,壺身繪有花卉圖案,還有一個小把手和壺嘴。

     

    The item's owner had inherited the item from his grandfather who, the auction house believes, "acquired" the item "while stationed in the Far East" during World War II.

    該古董的主人從他的祖父那里繼承了這件物品。拍賣行認為,這是他祖父在二戰"駐扎遠東期間""獲得"的物品。

     

    The auctioneer had initially estimated that the rare receptacle would sell for between £20,000 and £40,000, though prior to the sale it revised its estimate to between £100,000 and £150,000.

    拍賣行最初估計,這個罕見的古董將拍得2萬至4萬英鎊,不過在拍賣之前,該拍賣行將預估價上調至10萬至15萬英鎊。
