Jade Statue Bought For $475 Sells For $6.6M!
The buyer's daughter, Diana Miller, discovered it in England, wrapped in World War II era newspapers stuffed into a box. The carving was hidden by Miller's father, Sackville Pelham, before going off to war. Mr. Pelham died in 1948 and told no one the contents of the wooden bank box.
Miller was 88 at the time of her discovery. She had returned to England to settle her father's estate after living most of her life in South Africa. Miller was told the carving would possibly sell for $800,000 but racked up 8.25 times the appraised amount bringing the her profit to a whopping 1.39 million percent.
