The infamous prop was previously sold in 2007 for £4,000 to a private buyer. Auctioneer Andy Stowe, said the latest buyer was from Nouvion in France where the series was set so "it was going home".
The priceless but elusive masterpiece was the centrepiece to every episode of the classic sitcom. Stolen and relentlessly pursued by the Germans, the artwork was rolled into German sausages, shoved down trouser legs and singed by an exploding gilded frame intended as a gift for Adolf Hitler.
Described as "a rare and important piece of British sitcom history" the prop was one of the few copies of the picture to have survived all nine series of the show
