A Chinese vase valued at £400 sold for a staggering £388,000 after bidders disagreed with an auctioneers description of it.<br />
<br />
The 10ins antique sparked a worldwide bidding war because it has the six-character mark of the Yongzheng emperor (1722-35).<br />
<br />
However, auctioneers Adam's, of Dublin, gave it a paltry estimate as they believed this was an 'apocryphal' mark and it was actually made in the 20th century.
