The boy stole his mother’s pickle jar for an assessment, the expert just saw it and didn’t dare to say the price for fear of… the law

Recently, in China’s treasure assessment program, a young man brought his mother’s pickle jar to participate to ask an expert to appraise it. Because recently he was “stuck” for money, hoping if the pickle jar is real, he can sell it to make money.

He shared with the organizers, this vase has been around since he was born. His mother often used it to pickle vegetables, make chicken eggs soaked in soy sauce, etc. At first, he and his family didn’t notice it and just considered it an ordinary porcelain.

Until one day, a friend came to the house to play and discovered that the vase had some special features. The friend asked him if this vase was antique or not and intends to buy it again. At that time, the family began to feel that their jar of pickled salt might not be an ordinary item, so they did not agree to sell it.

So the guy brought the vase to the program to ask an expert to assess and advise on the price.

Before that, he intentionally bought another large vase to bring back to his mother. After that, he secretly took the porcelain vase to participate in the inspection program.

He also shared with the organizers that this jar is not suitable for pickling because it often leaks water.

The expert immediately thought that this was probably a fake because real ceramic vases will not leak or seep out if the surface is completely unbroken.

As expected, the porcelain vase is actually white porcelain of the Tang Dynasty.

The expert said: “This vase has the characteristics of Tang porcelain. Besides, the level of magnetization is very low. On the top of the jar there are features that show that the vase inherently has a lid attached. This is also known as Van Nien Quan.”

Experts said that it is rare to see antiques from the Tang Dynasty that can be preserved intact until now. Moreover, the vase is a type of vase used to pickle pickles made of white porcelain. This makes the value of the antique vase even more valuable.

Hearing this story, the guy was extremely excited because in his hand was a precious antique that could be sold for a lot of money. That’s why he immediately asked the expert how much the specific vase was worth.

However, it was unexpected that the expert said: “We cannot say the value of this vase and dare not say. Because this is an antique and national treasure, it cannot be traded.”

Experts show that this antique cannot be taken for trading. If you intentionally transact, you will be listed as breaking the law. Accordingly, they cannot arbitrarily quote prices, otherwise they will be implicated and responsible before the law.

This ancient vase has a very high collectible and cultural value, not suitable for personal collection and trade, so the best method is to donate it to the country.

The guy who heard the expert say that was a bit disappointed because he couldn’t sell the vase for money. Finally, he had to say, “The Tang Dynasty vase is at least worth collecting.” He expressed his desire to keep the family vase as a souvenir, as a consolation for the overwhelming disappointment.
