乾隆年间酒壶拍出高价

A tiny teapot-shaped antique, discovered in a garage in England during a lockdown clear-out, sold for 390,000 pounds Thursday, after its owner took it to an auctioneer for a free valuation.
有人在英格兰的一个车库里清理出了一件茶壶形状的小件古董,之后将它拿到一个拍卖行免费估价,并最终以39万英镑(约合人民币342万元)的价格成交。

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.
这件小古董被英国拍卖行汉森称为“年度最佳发现”。它被鉴定为18世纪的一种罕见酒器,也被称为执壶,上面还印有中国乾隆皇帝的印章。

Weighing just 362 grams, the enamel and copper antique is decorated with a floral motif and features a small handle and spout.
这件古董重362克,由搪瓷和铜制成,壶身绘有花卉图案,还有一个小把手和壶嘴。

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.
该古董的主人从他的祖父那里继承了这件物品。拍卖行认为,这是他祖父在二战“驻扎远东期间”“获得”的物品。

The auctioneer had initially estimated that the rare receptacle would sell for between 20,000 pounds and 40,000 pounds, though prior to the sale it revised its estimate to between 100,000 pounds and 150,000 pounds.
拍卖行最初估计,这个罕见的古董将拍得2万至4万英镑,不过在拍卖之前,该拍卖行将预估价上调至10万至15万英镑。
