Chinese Porcelain Platter Brings in Record Auction Price

Canadian auction company, Maynard Auctioneers had a record setting week. First it set the record for the highest price ever paid for an antique at one of their auctions in its one hundred and eight year history.  That record was broken when it sold a Chinese porcelain platter for $506,000.  This helped set their record for a three day art and antiques auction at more than $2,963,561.

The Chinese porcelain platter, which was expected to bring in between $1500-$2000, was not marked and there was no date attached to it.  It was a simple blue and white platter which featured a peacock in a natural scenic background.  The platter measured about 27.5 inches in diameter and was purchased via telephone by an Asian bidder, who was one of twenty eight bidders interested in purchasing the item.
