You're right, but when I loaded the page, the current bid read "218,500 USD". So you can see why I made such a conclusion.Drax wrote:Um, unless if I've forgotten something (or missing something), some European countries reverse the use of commas and decimals for numbers when compared to how we use them in America. So 200,00 is actually 200.00 (or two hundred).
Then again, the seller has set a reserve limit, but I don't see anything that says what the reserve mark is. So I suppose it could be set in the hundreds of thousands range....
So meanwhile, who's going to go for the cup??
If there were only two zeros after the comma, or if the currency were EUR instead, obviously the price would not be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
the joseon tea bowl made reserve and sold for US $649.60. I wouldn't mind drinking tea out of it, but it is a bit rich for my pocket. Compared to the price of other pieces of that vintage, it seemed a bargain for someone tho. So, who from here picked it up

Yay my estimate was close
Bit pricey for me too ^-^
And agree....wouldn't mind drinking tea from it at all!................pg tips, milk and sugar j/k
Very similar to the bowl by the same artist with which I inaugurated this topic....and fortunately for the budget, there are some smaller works that are more affordable, though I still daydream of one of those gorgeous big chawans, where Suzuki has a much larger canvas on which to work his magic....
