Cinnabar Yongle Vase Sells For Over £50k In Northern England

I traveled down to view this vase in Paul Beightons Auction (Rotherham) on the 24th, I knew I would not be able to buy it due to it being so heavily publicized, still it was nice to examine it in the flesh.

Chinese Ming Dynasty cinnabar lacquer bottle vase, the ribbed neck with key fret border is raised over a compressed globular body, deeply chased with four flowering peonies, six character Yongle mark and period.

A dealer in the room bought it against the telephone for just over £50,000 plus buyers premium.
