A British collector coughed up $1,500 Wednesday for a handful of smelly brown Tibetan cheese that is said to be 200 years old. "I have had a quick sniff of it though, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is even older than 200 years," said Simon Perry, who will add the hardened ounce of Tibetan cheese to a collection of several thousand cheeses he keeps in the cellar of his house. The cheese was brought to Britain at the turn of the century by Henry Martyn Stumbles, who spent three years in Tibet with the Tibetan Pioneers' Mission, Sotheby's said.
