This drawing was bought for 73p but you won't believe what it's been valued at

A DRAWING bought at a market for 73p turned out to be worth £10,000.

Santiago Taute paid one US dollar for the abstract work in his native Ecuador in 2001.

He emigrated and it spent two decades in a box before he took it out to show British wife Delia, 31, last year.

The art fan saw it was by Brit Lee Hadwin, who sold a painting to Donald Trump for £100,000.

She had the drawing valued.

Engineer Santiago, 39, has framed it in Aldershot, Hants.

He said: “We’re very happy and shocked to find this out.”
