$19 Million Vase Hidden

$19 Million Vase Hidden

This week in Paris we unveiled an extraordinary recently-discovered treasure of Imperial China: a unique 18th century ‘Yangcai’ ‘Famille-Rose’ porcelain vase, bearing a mark from the reign of the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1736-1795). Discovered by chance in the attic of a French family home, this magnificent vase was brought into Sotheby’s Paris by its unsuspecting owners in a shoe box. Our specialist was Immediately struck by its quality, and further research revealed the vase to be the only known example of its kind. The lost treasure will now be offered for sale in Paris on 12 June.

The treasure I found, or more truthful, that found me, was not hidden in a shoe-box in the attic.

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. (Matthew 13:44)

Jesus is a hidden treasure and will remain hidden from those unworthy to consider themselves unworthy.

In my joy I sold all, because, well, He the Truthful, Loving God is worth more than all the vases in the world.
