Antique Treasure Found in Cupboard!!

Check every cupboard when you're moving, selling a house, or settling an estate. Last year an English auctioneer was asked to look over items in a house whose owner was moving to a nursing home. In the kitchen cupboards, he found a pair of rare English porcelain sauceboats. They were slightly damaged and stained pieces of Chelsea porcelain marked with the early blue triangle mark used from 1745 to 1749. The pair sold for almost $79,000.

Don't have any rare sauceboats, but we do have some rare antique Wedgwood pieces. See them at Penny's Antiques & Wedgwood Pantry
