A wooden Japanese box that was bought for £100 in the 1970s (roughly £1,300 today) and used as a TV stand and drinks cabinet for 40 years, has fetched an incredible £6.3 million at auction. The enormous figure even came as a shock to the auction house, which had put an estimate of £200,000 on the box.
