A CHINESE Lacquer plate went for an astonishing £11,000 plus premium at Knowle Auction Rooms’ recent March sale.

The plate, known as the ‘dear bad neglectful mother’, belonged to a local resident. Following the sale, the auction rooms are having a special Chinese section in their May auction to encourage people to sort out their nick-nacks. Oriental treasures, often brought to Britain by soldiers or businessmen in years gone by, are fetching premium prices at the moment.
