A repaired vase - thought to have been made by Sevres - has beaten its estimate by 4,150% at a Cardiff, UK sale.
The item sold for £17,000 ($28,516) at Roger Jones Co in Cardiff after being valued at £200-400 ($335-670) WalesOnline reports.
The lot was broken prior to the sale and temporarily fixed.
Is it Sevres?
Ben Roger Jones, a spokesman for the auction house, told the publication: "I felt that the damage was so bad, it would deter buyers - it had been smashed into five or six pieces and glued together quite amateurishly."
It seems likely that Sevres, the world famous French porcelain factory, made the piece. The buyer seems convinced that the damage can be mitigated.
In June, a Sevres ceramic plate and teapot sold for £38,125 ($64,650) at Bonhams London.
