There was a time when netizens said that Carina Lau‘s luxurious apartment reminded them of an art gallery. This may be true as one of the vases in her abode is reported to be an antique that dates back to the Qing Dynasty and was last auctioned off in 2017 for 42.6mil yuan (SGD8.67mil). It is known as a tianqiuping, or celestial sphere vase, and it is said to have been made during Emperor Qianlong’s reign. It is estimated to be 300 years old.

A netizen who claimed to be a connoisseur of fine arts said that the National Museum of China also has such vases on display which is a testament to how much historical value such pottery has.

One netizen commented, “How is it that she has a vase that’s more than 10 times the cost of my house?” Another pointed out, “I can’ believe she’s actually using that vase for flowers. I wonder how rich you have to be in order to be so nonchalant about owning such a priceless piece of treasure.”
