Ming Dynasty “chicken cup”
Porcelain is luxury material and it’s one of the things that are collectible. Collections pieces are very expensive and that makes it very popular through the elite class.
But why this particularly porcelain cup is so expensive? Well, first this “chicken cup” is 500 years old, it is extremely rare, there are only 17 Ming Dynasty cups in the world and only 4 are owned by private collectors. For some people those things are pretty enough to pay $30 million for a cup! Do you think it’s worth it? After all, if you had that kind of money to drop, it is incredible satisfaction to own one of those rare “chicken cups”!
