Apparently this ceramic has been proven to be over 200 years old and is a spitting image of a 'modern' television set. I can't verify this (I can't read Chinese myself) but my wife can and apparently the story goes that a king got bored of receiving vases as gifts all the time and demanded something original and this is what some guy came up with.

Amazing find if true (I can't really see how it can be though). Hoping someone can verify/dismiss this claim.

Ahaha!

Besides being terribly tacky I find it impossible to believe that's really that old.
