“We’re delighted to offer a broad range of objects and furniture which represent China’s important contribution to the field of decorative arts,” says Lark Mason, who founded iGavel, one of the earliest online auction platforms. “Many of our items are from private collectors who purchased the very best in each of the categories from a variety of international galleries such as C.T. Loo and Sydney L. Moss, Ltd. and from estates of the Christian R. Holmes Collection and Sotheby’s from the 1960s-1990s.

Among the highlights are an 18th century Cloisonné Fangding form censer (Estimate: $5,000-8,000), a pair of Cloisonné Qianlong period vases and basins purchased (Estimate: $5,000-8,000), an important group of Chinese furniture from an American collector–including a huanghuali recessed leg table and a pair of huanghuali horseshoe back with armchairs with estimates from $30,000 to $100,000, a group of archaic Jade and carvings from the Zhou and Huang dynasties (Estimate: $1,500-2,500) and a Chinese Blanc de Chine Porcelain Figure of Guanyin (Estimate: $2,000-4,000).

Says Mason, “This sale provides an excellent opportunity for collectors both novice and veteran to purchase some outstanding pieces at accessible estimates.”
