Sounds like someone’s jealous that someone else managed to sell some work...
Sounds like some insufferably tedious pompous unabashed attention-whore clown has no clue as to what he's talking about, on so many levels, yet again.

But, hey, keep desperately cross-posting daily the same old/plus new stupid images of that watch, over and over, lad. Until you find a new bone to blabber on about, of course. You might even eventually reach your pathetic dream of accumulating whatever the equivalent of $512,000 (or at least until you hit $60K worth) in StyFo thumbs-ups is, if you get lucky and then tweak the math to your advantage.

Struck a nerve, I see. Don’t worry, man. Things will pick-up for you.

NFTs are objectively and indisputably the most stupid pieces of tacky, tedious crap ever produced.
Well, give the NFT "artworks" at least some credit.

They might very well be tied for that title by those hideous wall-mounted plastic planters, the J-MB(Estate)boards, and other various tacky, tedious crap "cool? design? desiderata? visual adornments" which always so sadly populate the walls, floors, and mind of a certain poster's (aka "tastemaker") apartment....

Flattered you think I’m a tastemaker! I was beginning to think you didn’t like me.

Struck a nerve, again, I see. Don’t worry, son. GE will be by soon to pick-up [sic] for you.
“Son”? Lol. By my estimation, I’m about 20 years older than you.

Hope you nail down that DWR summer job!

That is actually very nice. Where did you get it from?
An antique dealer in Austria.

The most interesting thing about these qingbai pieces is that they aren’t that rare. By the 10-11th century in the Song Dynasty, porcelain and ceramics of high quality were already being mass-produced. This little dish is one of millions made at the time and was likely used by a peasant family. They now get dug up from the ground fairly regularly. Sometimes random antique dishes and bowls are still found being used. It’s a testament to the technology and workmanship of the time that these ceramics have survived for a millennium often looking virtually new.

Happily, due to sheer quantity and the fact that the Chinese themselves do not consider ordinary peasant ware of any particular artistic or archaeological value, prices are quite reasonable. Obviously it would be a different story if looking at Imperial pieces from the same time period, in which case you’d have to pay tens of millions for a tiny bowl.

In Chinese tea tradition, very old implements are highly prized. Qing Dynasty zisha teapots are obviously a focus, but so are Song or Ming Dynasty porcelain dishes and bowls for use as tea boats.

I think what really what got V this time is the non-zero chance that I may get very own SF column in which I report gonzo style on Foo adventures that are based around interesting material objects that he owns.

I may think that house looks trashy but it is no different than videogame DLC. Something digital that has worth to only a few. This current digital art boom, NFT, reminds me of the Final Fantasy XIV housing crisis: Bloomberg, "there's a housing crisis looming in final fantasy xiv" that was such a big thing years back and it only getting seriously improved this year with the newest expansion.
IMHE, seems a bit more like the Second Life Housing crash where everybody lost their shirts. After the rubble cleared, I became a nomad, traveling land to land as a mendicant with a robot buddy of mine. We had a lot of great philosophical and economic conservations, and he'd always wait for me whenever I visited brothels. I was ACTUALLY A LOT HAPPIER AFTER THE CRASH. Mainly because I sold at the top of the market and converted almost all that funny money into greenbacks.

How do you know Foo x-poasts the same watch? U watching him?

Hope you nail down that DWR summer job!
C'mon Foo, V is floor manager material and you know it.

Well, lessee...besides getting the first and second parts entirely wrong (you being the you who adores flattery and ergo thinks and proselytizes endlessly that you're a "tastemaker", although presumably your alter-clown also thinks the same of you), you definitely got the third part entirely correct. Bright side: 33% correct is a pretty damned fooing good improvement over your normal!

“Son”? Lol. By my estimation, I’m about 20 years older than you.
So literal, as always. It's not really only an age-related term, lad, and while I have no idea regarding your typically ridic "age-estimation analytical presumptive powers" please...do not tell us more....
