Just want to add a brief note. The reserve for this item is far lower than the Christies 2009 sale price for the same style bowl. Please keep in mind that since the 2009 sale,genuine Dayazhai Imperial porcelain has gone up in value at least double, if not triple.
Apair of fishbowls were sold by Bonhams in 2011 forover $300,000 even small pieces of dinnerware are bringing in high amounts. Here is a small turquoise bowl that sold in 2012 for over $126,000. my research is correct, narcissus bowls are more rare than dinnerware pieces.
DO NOT MISS OUT ON AN OPPORTUNITY TO BUY A GENUINE IMPERIAL DAYAZHAI PORCELAIN.
