NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction of Asian Works of Art on September 21, 2020 presented the arts of China, Japan and Southeast Asia dating from the Neolithic Period through the 20th century. 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.

Also featured was property from the Estates of W.R. Appleby and Elinor Appleby, longtime donors to the Asian Department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This exceptional collection showcased a wide range of porcelain, sculpture, bronzes, paintings and other objects acquired by prominent and discerning connoisseurs.
