China tiger: This 18th-century image of a tiger, the most expensive item of porcelain headwear ever sold by Sotheby's, has returned to the auction house in London as one of 300 exhibits celebrating Europe's trading links with the Far East.

Timed in advance of the handover of Hong Kong to China, the exhibition opens today, until 7 February.
