Pinner Qing Dynasty Vase is by far the most expensive sold antique in the whole world. The vase is decorated with gold, pastel yellow and sky-blue, and has 4 motifs including fishes and flowers. It also bears the imperial seal and is believed to have been crafted for Emperor Qianlong, who reigned between 1736 and 1795. At first, it was thought to be a nice replica and valued at only $1000. After reevaluation, it was determined to be authentic and was reappraised at $1 million. Accordingly, there were 18 of this vase but this is the only one that is left. How it got to London from China is still a mystery.
