Coffin In Garden Fetches Nearly £100,000
A stone coffin being used in a Dorset garden as a flower planter has sold at auction for nearly £100,000!
The marble sarcophagus - thought to date back to Roman times - was spotted by a valuer from Dukes of Dorchester earlier this year.
Measuring around 7ft (2.1m) it was originally imported into the UK in 1913 by a man from Swanage who worked for Queen Victoria.
A spokesman for Duke's who sold it say its a rectangular shape and is carved from fine quality white marble and the quality of the carving suggests it was made for a high status individual.
Dukes said the owners were "utterly delighted" with the sale.
