Just because they`re *worth* that much is no guarentee someone will actually come along who`ll pay that much for them (apart from maybe a museum). A lot of times, auctions don`t even do half as good as they`re estimated to.
It just depends. You kind of have to get lucky.
It could be quite shocking to be told that, but that doesn`t mean she should jump around going "Oh mah Gard Oh Mah Gard" like most middle aged American women seem to on TV shows.
For all you know she might be very well off already and an extra million is a bonus but not life changing - after all, she already said she knew the big snot bowl was worth quite a lot.
Most people will react like her, in more of a shock way then a 4-month-old-puppy-on-crack way. If I won a million dollars, I`d probably freeze up for a few seconds then say "Wow. That`s neat.".
That guy`s definitely from Boston.
I was thinking the same thing...one day 200 and something years ago a powerful emperor owned that bowel and now...well, now the head to the local PTA owns it and probably kept it next to the pottery material...
I found it on eBay and it`s selling rather cheap if the items are worth that much.
Bit of an emphasis on the money though from the clips I`ve seen. The original British version doesnt put the amount up on screen afterwards, heh.
I also agree with what she SAID she wanted to do which is keep them, if they`re worth that much now, imagine what it would be worth in 25-50 years; if you have an ok life now, don`t go ruining it with too much money. her brother is probably a drunk-pot head and sold them and blew all his money...I know the type
Also:"they only sold for a little less then 500k"SO?!?! o.O
I can`t believe there`s any question about selling these things. Am I evil for saying that a price tag that high trumps any possible amount of sentimental value I have for anything?
And your man has the coolest accent ever.
Gotta save all todays crap, it will be gold tomorrow!
