Showcased were porcelains, jades, snuff bottles, bronzes, pottery, scholar’s objects and paintings from prominent collections and estates.
From the Estate of Ethel L. Farrand was a large collection for finely carved Chinese jade objects. Offered as group lots, the jades attracted competitive bidding that sent the prices soaring over their estimates.
