A small porcelain cup has fetched $40million at an auction in Hong Kong.
Sotheby’s Nicholas Chow holds a “Chicken Cup” which sold for a record price.
The small item is known as the “chicken cup” because it is decorated with a rooster and hen tending to their chicks.
The cup is 500 years old and was bought by a Shanghai collector.
Only 17 such cups exist, and this is the only one in China.
The cup will be displayed at Liu’s Long Museum in Shanghai.
