Rare rhinoceros horn cup goes for £80,000 at auction





An intricately carved 17th Century cup which had been in a North Lincolnshire attic for 25 years has sold for four times its estimated price at auction.

The Chinese libation cup, which is made out of a rhinoceros horn, had been valued at between £20,000 and £30,000.

But it went for £80,000 at an auction house in Brigg on Saturday.
