During Chrities' Asia week auction of "Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art" held on King Street today, ( May 15th, 2012), in London a stunning and remarkably small Ge type Song Dyanasty Bowl (1127-1279) brought $1,328,653.
Inch for Inch it may be the most expensive example of Asian Porcelain ever sold. We noticed it in the catalog last week with a curiously low estimate of only 20,000 to 30,000 pounds.
Well, it seems some very serious bidders with deep wallets agreed about the estimate and had the desire to push it to it's limits..for now anyway.
Sold For $1,328,653
