A Chinese Jun ware bowl could make in excess of $20,000-30,000 at Artemis Auction Gallery in Boulder, Colorado on January 28.
The lot is of exceptional quality and similar examples have sold for more than $100,000 at auction.
As Tessa Dodge, managing director at Artemis, explained: "The Bernheimer family instructed us to price the estate at levels that would generate interest and ensure that most of the lots were sold.
"Discriminating collectors will know the importance of this bowl, as well as everything else in the sale. We have every confidence that they'll bid to win."
