What’s So Special About This Bowl? It’s Age And It’s Price!

 

A 1,000 year-old bowl from China is making headlines for it’s sale price.  This is a bowl that you would want to only have on display, and never touch, in fear that it could slip out of your hand. The small piece – which dates from 960-1127 – broke the previous record of $36.05 million set in 2014 for a Ming dynasty wine cup which was sold to a Shanghai tycoon.

 

The porcelain bowl was used to wash brushes. It was recently featured at an auction, where bidding started at $10 million.  It ended up selling for $37.7 million at Sotherby’s.
