A rare jade paperweight which was bought for £70 50 years ago in Hong Kong has sold at Cheltenham based auction house Mallams for £170,000. The horse shaped paperweight turned out to be dated as far back as 1368, during the early Ming dynasty of the Chinese empire. The horse will be flown back to where it was bought half a century ago as it was bought by a Hong Kong buyer.
