The Chinese Statue, acquired by Sir Alexander Heathcote, was regarded as a family heirloom and was to be always passed on to the first born in the family after Alexander’s death. Fate changed when the statue finally came into the hands of Alex Heathcote, the great-great grandson of Alexander. Alex was a spendthrift who gambled away all his money and to get out of his debt, sold the statue at an auction, from where the narrator bought it.
