A small bowl bought for just $35 (£25) at a market sale in the US state of Connecticut has turned out to be a rare 15th-Century Chinese artefact. The bowl is thought to be worth between $300,000 and $500,000, and to be one of only seven such bowls in existence.

Oof, I can’t help but sympathize with the person who sold for $35. Edit: can -> can’t


If anybody finds a rare bowl at a market in Connecticut , it’s mine , I lost it a few weeks ago.


Amazing. There are so many gems out there waiting to be discovered. I’ll keep my eye out for one of the other remaining six bowls!


How is this upliftingnews? The seller must be pretty fucking miserable.
