A 1,000-year-old bowl from China's Song Dynasty has sold at auction in Hong Kong for almost US$38m, which sets a record for Chinese porcelain.

Sotheby's, the auction house, said the rare Ru-ware brush-washer sold after 20 minutes of tense bidding from a handful of phone bidders, and one in the room.

The little piece measures 13cm across and is glazed in a blue-green colour.

The bowl's buyer has chosen to remain anonymous.
