A rare 15th-century Chinese antique found at a yard sale has sold for $721,800 at auction by Sotheby’s. Bought for just $35 near New Haven, Connecticut, last year, the small blue-and-white floral bowl was originally commissioned by China’s imperial court during the Ming dynasty. While Sotheby’s is not disclosing the seller’s identity, the head of its Chinese art department, Angela McAteer, revealed that the man who found the bowl at the yard sale “didn’t haggle over the $35 asking price.” โ
