A Chinese vase a demolition worker received as payment for a job nearly 40 years ago has now sold for a whopping £550,000.<br />
<br />
The Qing famille rose vase had been given to the owner's late father, who ran a demolition company in south London in the 1980s.<br />
<br />
He kept it in his two-bed semi-detached house until he passed away.
