Christie's Hong Kong

Two Chinese peach bowls (1723-1735)Today, Christie's Hong Kong kicked off its four-day auction of Oriental artworks. BBC News (title link) is showing nine of the goodies up for grabs, which include these two exquisite Chinese peach bowls from the Yongzheng period (1723-1735). Imagine paying $4m for them and the missus drops them on the floor while doing the washing up! Grounds for divorce?
