The 83 Million Dollar Vase – Unpaid


The vase went for 83 Million dollars. But it’s unpaid. The auction houses have reported great numbers for objects of late. Especially with Chinese buyers, the art market in Asia exploded in 2010 and 2011. Yet all of the great numbers weren’t real. A Chinese scroll sold sold for 22 million Euros which is higher in US dollars, but that too is unpaid. These headline items made huge news, but months and months later, you don’t hear that the items never changed hands and will most likely go back to auction and be sold for much less.
