Baffling finds at garage sales and inheritances

Oddee is a site that tends to feature at Potpourri rather than here. This recent post is pure Art for Art's Sake material though. It lists ten "low value" objects found at garage sales or obtained in an inheritance, which turned out to be incredibly expensive art treasures, worth up to 200 million dollars. The list includes a unique set of Ansel Adams negatives, a Song dynasty bowl, and as shown above a real (be it small) Constable, worth about 10000 times the value the owner paid for it. Fun and interesting reading material.
