A 30 MILLION DOLLAR BOWL
09 April 2018
Category : MARKET


An extremely rare Qing Dynasty bowl made for the Chinese emperor Kangxi fetched US$30.4 million (HK$239 million) at auction in Hong Kong on April 3, 2018, Sotheby's said. 

The bowl, just under six inches (14.7 cm) in diameter, is decorated with falangcai -- painted enamels combining Chinese and Western techniques -- and flowers, including daffodils which are not typically depicted on Chinese porcelain. Said to have been used by the emperor in the early 18th century, it  sold within five minutes to an unnamed phone bidder from the "Greater China" region, said chairman of Sotheby's Asia Nicolas Chow. 

There are only three examples altogether that use this beautiful pink (background) regarding this bowl created in an imperial workshop within Beijing's Forbidden City by a small team of craftsmen, with the help of Jesuits from Europe who had brought new techniques and materials, according to Sotheby's. Last year a 1,000-year-old bowl from China's Song Dynasty sold for US$37.7 million, a record for Chinese ceramics.
