So you think that the teapot that you purchased last weekend was really expensive? Here is something to console you. A pair of “famille rose” coral ground teapots from the Quianlong Period were sold for $1,264,629 at an auction in Hong Kong. These pots have been painted with landscapes in blue and green colours. The design of the art indicates the appreciation of European landscapes. Hence not only are they the most expensive teapots in the world, but they also explore the European connection of China 200 years back.
