Junk Feud

Chuck Out The Plant But Please Keep The Vase

A woman who bought a plant and vase for £1 at a car boot sale has sold it for £32,000. She thought the vase was junk and was about to throw it away but decided to have it valued on the Antiques Roadshow. The 1929 Lalique vase was valued at £25,000 - the most expensive piece of glass seen on the show. It was created by French designer Rene Lalique and is unique as the mould was broken in the production process.

FOOTNOTE: Oh, the cologne.

Oh my goodness! For a £1?
Fabulous.
I love that it is unique and wasn't meant to be. A real fluke.
