Market

On the television program Antiques Roadshow, a “rather fancy soap dish,” that the owner bought for 25p from a junk shop, turned out to bean 18th-century Delftware bowl worth over £5,000. In June 2005, a pair of 18th-century Meissen white porcelain herons created by Johann-Joachim Kandler set a world record for the highest priced European ceramic at auction when they were purchased for €5.6million. Christie’s Paris auctioned off an early 16th-century Urbino maiolica dish for €144,000 in December 2006. More recently, in May 2013, Sotheby’s London sold a pair of blue and white ‘Bajixiang’ Moon flasks for approximately £2.4 million and a coral-ground famille-verte bowl for £446,500. Items needn’t be ancient or from far-away lands to be of extraordinary value. In April 2004, Sotheby’s sold a Chelsea porcelains colopendrium teapot and cover (ca. 1750-52) for $90,000, and modern works, such as Pablo Picasso’s coveted ceramics, can also generate large sums at auction.
