PEN­SIONER AND HER BRO­KEN VASE

The Week - Junior - - This Week’s Big News -

An 83-year-old woman who was pre­par­ing to do­nate her bro­ken vase to char­ity has just sold it at auc­tion for £70,000. Anne Beck, from Sus­sex, was on her way to the char­ity shop when she stopped off at an auc­tion­eer’s to see whether the vase was worth any­thing. The or­na­ment dates back to the 18th cen­tury, and would have been worth up to £500,000 if it wasn’t cracked.
