PERFECT CHINESE MID 19TH C.CENTURY FAMILLE ROSE CELADON PAIR QUALITY VASES 62cm
Bidding history shows that the winning bidder has only bid for pieces from this seller while the under-bidder has tried his luck in different auctions. So if the winner is just a fake account of the seller himself trying to push the price up he has sold the vase to himself - bad luck. Many inexperienced bidders were involved in this transaction. The last bidder who had more than 130 feedbacks got cold feet two days ago and cancelled his bid two days ago. Although the vases look ok I personally would never spend that much on Ebay on pieces I could jugde only from pictures.
You cannot read too much into bidder activity with a seller as it only shows activity in the last 30 days. With 2 feedbacks, it's not that unusual. One of the bidders with over 700 feedbacks had over 219 bid retractions on his account. As to whether or not it will get paid for is always a question. In our own experience, the PAID rate for thigs over $10,000 is around 90%. When it gets to $40,000 and up, it's 100%.
I have had plenty of bidders with very low feedback, they always pay, 100% so far, especially when the price is fairly high. The vases look like museum quality, you could probably bet they will end up in a Chinese museum.
I was talking to a Chinese man in London a while ago, he said to me that the majority of the real good stuff that is shipped out to China either ends up in a museum or sells for three times as much to Chinese wealthy buyers, they are buying back their heritage.
