You never know what you might find...

The buyer had no idea of the vase's value until he put it up on eBay, where bidding quickly reached £10,000 ($12,293).

He withdrew it and brought it along to Woolley & Wallis, which identified it as a rare imperial "two quails" vase from the Qianlong era (1711-1799).
