A tiny finger bowl which was spotted in a box of bric-a-brac has sold for over £32,000 after it was found to be a rare Chinese relic.<br />
<br />
The blue and white bowl, that measures 5ins in diameter, was made during the reign of China's Emperor Yongzheng, which lasted from 1722-35 during the Qing Dynasty.<br />
<br />
The item was brought into an auction house by a woman who had inherited it from a relative.<br />
<br />
Auctioneer Charles Hanson identified the six-character mark on the bottom that confirmed it was made in imperial China in the early 18th century.
