The world's most expensive vase: $ 21.6 million

The Emperor's collection of china Meiyintang was identified as one of the most prestigious. It was formed over 50 years by Zuellig Swiss brothers and began to be offered in the Asian market in April.

But at that time the largest packages did not find enough interest and its sale was postponed. The move appears to have been highly satisfactory. The second batch went on sale this Wednesday, with the emphasis on old monochrome vases of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

It paid $ 11.6 million by a vase of peach-era QinQ Qianlong (1644-1911), while a particular piece in blue and white was sold in Thu period 3.7 million.

Then, the positions began to grow by a lofty vase Meiping, the first Ming period. One of the operators was in the room, connected by telephone with the investor, battled over ten minutes to reach the mark of $ 21.6 million. Only then, with a hit record, got the hammer. Sold!
