Wonders! See The 1,000 Years Old Washing Bowl That Was Sold For £28 Million

A small but highly important
ceramic dish from Imperial
China sold for a world record
£28 million ($37.7 million) in
Hong Kong.


The 'virtually unobtainable'
brush washer is around 1,000
years old and was commissioned by the imperial court during the Song dynasty.

It was made by Ru guanyao,
which is one of the most
revered of the Five Great Kilns used during this period. The dish, which has a
diameter of just 13cm and
would have been used to
clean brushes, has a glowing,
intense blue-green glaze and
'ice crackle' pattern.

It was offered by Sotheby's
with a guide price of £10
million ($13.24 million), but
there was a fierce 20-minute
bidding war and the dish
eventually sold to an anonymous bidder for £28
million ($37.7 million)
