A rare Chinese vase found in the attic of a house in West Baldwin has sold for more than £500,000 at an auction in the Isle of Man.
The Qianlong porcelain planter was bought by a telephone bidder on the line from Hong Kong for £520,000 at Murray's Auctioneers on Friday.
The estimate price of the item was between £40,000 and £60,000.
Three of the largest Chinese art dealers from London flew to the island last week to view the item.
Auctioneer Murray Keefe described the selling price as "staggering".
