When A Woman Took Her Old Vase To Auction, The Price It Sold For Was Simply Staggering

In 2019 a man received a phone call from a number he didn’t recognize. On the other end of the line was an elderly woman. She was wondering what to do with her works of art. The person answering the call was Johan Bosch van Rosenthal, an art valuer and adviser from The Netherlands. The caller asked if he would personally come to her home to assess the collection. And while van Rosenthal had seen numerous beautiful things in many different places, nothing could have prepared him for what he was about to find.
