Consignments Are Now Being Accepted for the September 2013 Asian Works of Art Sale
Doyle New York's Asian Works of Art auction on March 18, 2013 attracted strong competition from an international audience of bidders in the salesroom, on the telephones, and live on the Internet. The auction offered almost 500 lots showcasing the arts of China, Japan and Southeast Asia from the Neolithic Period through the 20th century. Offerings included porcelain and pottery, jades, scholar’s objects, bronzes, screens, furniture and paintings.
Highlighting the sale was a Chinese yellow glazed porcelain vase with the Jiajing Six-Character Mark and of the Period. Intense interest in the five-inch-tall vase was sparked by its unusual form and rare yellow glaze. Strong competitive bidding on the vase eventually dwindled down to two determined phone bidders, and the vase was sold to a buyer in Hong Kong for a stunning $362,500.
With international competitive bidding, the sale totaled a strong $2,591,125 against a pre-sale estimate of $1,824,600-2,794,100 with 69% sold by lot and 81% by value.
All prices include the Buyer’s Premium.
