It is a hugely important part of China's culture, with the small pieces considered the epitome of the Chinese potters' craft.
The last brush washer to be sold publicly was in 2012 when a dish was auctioned by Sotheby's.
The auction house said the person behind the winning proposition wishes to remain anonymous, it's unknown whether the buyer is from China mainland or elsewhere.
Nicolas Chow, deputy chairman of Sotheby's Asia, commented: 'It's a totally new benchmark for Chinese ceramics and we've made history with this piece today,'The price paid for the dish in Hong Kong is a world record for a Chinese ceramics piece, beating the £27 million (.7) paid in April 2014 for a Meiyintang Chenghua 'Chicken Cup'.
