An ancient Chinese bowl sold for millions this week at a New York auction.

In 2007, it was bought at a yard sale for just $3.00. The owner had it on display at their home for years before they became curious about its origin.

Turns out it's a 1,000-year-old treasure. The 'Ding' bowl is an example of Northern Song Dynasty pottery.

A London dealer bought the bowl for $2.2 million.
