A woman who kept a Chinese vase in a box in her attic for over 20 years is celebrating today after it sold for nearly £600,000.<br />
<br />
The blue and white porcelain piece had been given to the lucky owner in the 1990s by an elderly auntie who had it on her hallway table for years.<br />
<br />
The late Annie Glover had herself been gifted it when she worked as a teacher in Shanghai in the early 20th century.<br />
<br />
Her niece, who is not being named, has now sold it through Devon auctioneers Bearnes, Hampton and Littlewood.
