FTA: "The owner did not wish to be identified."

I can see why.

I think there needs to be a rule about submitting copypasta headlines

Even if it was a cheap vase from Target, why would someone use a fragile object as a doorstop?

I've noticed it's Daily Mail headlines. Daily Mail and Fark have similar approaches to the news, just Fark doesn't talk down to its audience.

Folks, they weren't using the vase as a doorstop. The thing it was sitting on was being used as the doorstop.
Subby just needs to read the article the next time..

Because their Ming doorstop is worth twice that much.

FTFA: They had the vase on a wooden stand that was used as a doorstop in their Long Island home.

Thank God..... it's fake. See look at the cross section.

Mitt Romney was quoted as saying it was an average doorstop.

Try Han Dynasty vases. Much more outrage when you destroy them.

I hope they remembered to drop the pillow first before setting it down.

Er . . . I recently came across a 2300 year old umbrella stand . . . A Greek Urn. And they knew it was that old, and how valuable it was, they just thought it made a great umbrella stand.

I really wanted to go back at night and try to smuggle it out of the country, but my boyfriend wouldn't go along with me.
