Photos of damaged ancient plate raise doubts

Comparison pictures show the difference between images of a 1,000-year-old porcelain plate released by the official website of the Palace Museum (L) and China Central Television (R), Aug 2, 2011. The porcelain plate, a grade-one cultural relic from the Ge kiln called "Celadon Plate with a Mouth in the Shape of Mallow Petals", was crushed and damaged on July 4 when a laboratory researcher used a device to examine it, according to a statement from the museum. The difference has aroused doubts online. Netizens are doubtful of whether pictures are of same plate. [Photo/CFP]
