3,000-year-old pots found in graves on display.

A COLLECTION of rare 3,000- year- old pots have been reconstructed and will go on display at the NEC this week.

The 15 pots, from Thailand, were found in graves and other domestic settings, leading experts to suggest they are of some significance.

The pots will go on display at Antiques for Everyone, the UK's largest antiques fair, between April 12-15.

A special Downton Abbey inspired feature, including a dramatic period home and room set, is also planned for the fair. Mark West, antiques dealer, said: "I just think they are extremely pretty, extremely beautiful things.

"They are very rare but cost a fraction of Ming vases and other more established rare pottery."
