Coronavirus lockdown could prove to be a money spinner for one UK family - after they found a rare Chinese ?teapot? in their garage that could be worth as much as ?L100,000 GBP. The imperial Chinese??wine ewer - or teapot - was set to be given away to a charity shop after the family in South Derbyshire in England had a clear-out during Covid-19 quarantine. Now auctioneers hope it could net big money when it goes under the hammer. The rare Beijing-enamelled??object, which resembles a teapot??and??dates??back to the Qianlong period (1735-99), stunned experts at Hansons Auctioneers when it was??taken??for free valuation at its Etwall Auction Centre, near Derby. The??tiny 15cm object is??due to be sold on September 24 with an estimate of ?L20,000-?L40,000 GBP but??such is the demand for??imperial works of art??from wealthy Chinese buyers, it could make ?L100,000 GBP, according to Charles Hanson, owner of Hansons Auctioneers. He said: ?This has to be the best lockdown find ever.??It is such an exciting??discovery,??an??imperial 18th century wine ewer which would??have graced a??palace in China and??was,??perhaps,??handled by??Emperor??Qianlong, considered by some to be??the greatest??Chinese??emperor.?? ?Two??almost identical teapots, both with Qianlong reign marks, exist in the??National Palace Museum??in??Taipei,??Taiwan,??and the??Palace Museum??in??Beijing, China.??It?s truly astonishing??to find??an??emperor?s wine ewer in??a??Derbyshire home,??an object used to??serve warm wine during??important ceremonies.? ??And yet, but for lockdown, it could have ended up being??donated??to a charity shop along with??other??items accumulated over the years by the family. ??Its 51-year-old owner, a semi-retired??manual??worker, said: ?The teapot has been in my family as long as I can remember. My mum used to display it in a cabinet. We believe it was brought back to England??from China??by my grandfather??who was stationed in the Far East??during the Second World War and??was awarded a??Burma Star medal." Hansons? valuer Edward Rycroft said: ?I knew it was special and persuaded the vendor to leave it with us so we could??carry out??some research. We were delighted to tell him later that it could be worth tens of thousands of pounds.? The wine ewer, which has a??rectangular form, is??brightly decorated on a lemon-yellow ground with colourful blooming peonies in hues of pinks, blues and purples.?? The rare??Qianlong??period wine ewer is due to be sold on September 24 at Hansons.
