Due to the successful results of the last two Asian auctions, this specialized auction has become a permanent part of our auction agenda. The catalog contains no fewer than 234 lots, consisting of porcelain, earthenware, ivory carvings and netsuke, bronze objects, keris, sculptures and furniture, all from China, Japan or Southeast Asia.
The auction will start with a collection of blue and white porcelain, ranging from the 14th to the early 20th century. Remarkable is lot 17, a pair of Chinese blue and white tureens with lids dated about 1745. These are both decorated with Burghley House and decorated with lid knobs in the shape of a fruit. Valuation for this pair € 2,000 – 3,000.
Lot 19 is one of the oldest porcelain objects in this catalog. This Chinese oval blue and white 'lotus' lidded box dates from the Ming dynasty and is presented to you with an appraisal of € 2,000 – 3,000.
The Chinese blue and white rouleau vase dating from the Kangxi period is special. It is decorated not only with panels depicting dignitaries and servants, but also with lotus and chrysanthemums. Valuation for lot 33 € 3,000 – 5,000.
The lovers of colorful porcelain have a wide choice of famille rose, famille verte and imari objects. Lot 55 concerns a service part consisting of 15 serving dishes, plates and a dish from the Qianlong period. Valuation € 2,000 – 3,000.
The Yixing pottery is also represented in this auction. Lot 77 is a museum example of a teapot with lid, due to the exceptionally refined and gilded decoration. Valuation € 3,000 – 5,000.
We are delighted with the private collection of snuff bottles, an ever sought-after collector's item. Among the wide range you will find lot 126, a Chinese white jade specimen from the 19th century. This bottle is cut with Liu Haic and its coins and three-legged toad and the back is decorated with a Buddhist symbol. Valuation € 1,000 – 1,500.
High quality is the Chinese figure of Manjusric seated on a mythological animal, made of white glazed porcelain. This Dehua sculpture is very detailed and is in impressive condition. Valuation lot 139 € 4,000 – 6,000.
Among the Chinese funerary statues you will find two impressive specimens under lot 140 and 141. The latter is the beautiful Chinese polychrome earthenware model of a saddled horse from the Eastern Wei dynasty. Unfortunately, we had to postpone the auction of this attractive object this spring. With an impressive provenance, it is now offered to you with a valuation of €10,000 – 15,000.
This catalog includes various Asian furniture, from cabinets, benches, tables, chairs to screens. Lot 166, a six-ply hardwood folding screen inlaid with quartz and soapstone, is very impressive. The detailed way in which each panel is worked and the gilded decoration on the back make this screen an 'objet de vertu'. Valuation € 4,000 – 6,000.
The dinner set under lot 181 is of Japanese origin, consisting of 23 dishes, saucers and plates. The whole is decorated in Nabeshima style in a bright blue color and makes this lot a very modern-looking ensemble. Valuation € 5,000 – 7,000.
The cover of this catalog is decorated with a colonial Vizagatepam document chest, dated about 1620. The ebony is not only inlaid with pen engraved ivory, but also has silver fittings, possibly from Batavia. The medallion with the family crest, placed centrally on the lid, traces back to the original owner Van Oordt. This may be the VOC merchant Johan van Oordt (1701-1775), who was established on Ambon as a junior merchant, merchant, chief merchant and resident in Hila respectively. For the regular visitor of the Rijksmuseum, which has a comparable chest in rosewood, the valuation of € 25,000 – 35,000 will be very attractive.
Several Buddhist figures are also included in this auction, including lot 210. This Burmese bronze specimen, dating from the 14th or 15th century, has a very refined pose, with serene expression and elongated earlobes. Valuation for this museum object € 10,000 – 20,000.
Of course, the above is just a selection from the entire range. We therefore invite you to the online catalog here .
