An exquisite 18th century Chinese vase has sold for over £2.2million after sparking a bidding war.<br />
<br />
The gold-yellow 10ins bottle-shaped porcelain vase with a narrow neck was made during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor.<br />
<br />
It is decorated with lotus flowers, with handles fashioned in the form of gold enameled dragons.<br />
<br />
Crucially, the antique carries the emperor's six character seal mark in red on its base.
