Chinese Bowl Sells for $27 Million

A 900-year-old porcelain bowl has sold for $27 million.

The flower-shaped bowl, from a private Japanese collection, was purchased by an anonymous bidder at a Sotheby's auction in Hong Kong.

It now holds the record for the most expensive ceramic bowl from the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127). There are believed to be only 79 complete pieces of pottery in existence from that era.

As my dad would say, "You could have bought a new one for that."
