"a Ding bowl from the Song dynasty".
They're making it up, aren't they.

Did it contain an Ancient Chinese Secret?

Now if it was a Bling bowl from the Cheech and Chong dynasty, during the Reign of Empress Collins, then you'd be sure they're making it up.

Reminds me of that episode from Antiques Roadshow.

See? It pays to stay awake in art history class!

/It's possible that I sound like an art historian.
//Love these kind of stories.

The Bong Dynasty? I think that's the name of a hookah bar downtown.

That looks like the bowl I made in my high school art class.

I bought a trunk at a yard sale for $10 a few years ago.  When I got it home, I started going through the compartments and found a $20 in one of them.


I ordered in Chinese food with the money so that makes it basically the same thing as this story.

WoW. Just...WoW.

/Guess this beats the guy who bought a crappy painting and frame for 5$ at the flea market and found an original copy of the Deceleration of Independence hidden behind the painting. Think he only got a million or so.....the amateur.

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: I would totally pay 2 mil for that.


But it isn't something that I get a buyer everyday, and I have to display it, it will take up space for I don't know how long.  How does $5,000 work for you?

I guess I can go $5,800, but that is my top dollar.

How much for this bowl?
-- $4.
But isn't this a Ding?
--Alright, $3.
 
2013-03-20 11:14:10 AM
It's fake. You can tell with the cross sections.

Look, I can do  $5,825  if that helps you out.

Three dollars! I'll have you know I would have paid any price for this bowl.
-- Joke's on you, buddy. I would have taken a quarter.

Other than the fact that it's a really old bowl...yeah, it's worth about three bucks, tops.

Looking at the photo of it, I don't see what's so great about it to make it worth $2.15M

Would otherwise be interested, but suspects Harry Catapodis is running another scam.

To quote one of the appraisers on Antiques Roadshow:

"Why do I never come across these garage sales?"

/probably because I don't go to garage sales

Rick would give them about 8 grand and even then cry about how he spent too much

Found $120 on the ground.
Found $500+ blowing around in front of a 7-11.  Long explanation made short; made reasonable effort for the rightful owner to make contact with me, they didn't.

/in both instances, I was scraping by.

Shenadigans. Didn't someone think to question the garage-saler where he got the bowl in the first place? War loot?

Two point one million for a bowl?! It must have been made out of Martha Stewart's vagina!
