Lark Mason Associates presents Spring Asian Art Sale
A superb intricately cast 18th century Sino-Tibetan Parcel Gilt Bronze Figure of Avalokiteshvara (Estimate: $10,000-15,000).



NEW YORK, NY.- Lark Mason Associates is pleased to present its Spring sale of Asian, Ancient, Ethnographic Works of Art which is now open for bidding on http://www.igavelauctions.com/ through April 29th.

“With 480 lots from multiple sellers nationwide, this two-session sale offers an impressive array of important and rare Asian works of art from ancient to the twentieth century and will appeal to a wide range of collectors and Asian art enthusiasts,” says Lark Mason, who notes a pair of Chinese Cloisonné Ewers, Qianlong Mark, Qing Dynasty / Republic Period (Estimate: $30,000-50,000).

According to Mason, the ewers were purchased in Tokyo after World War II by an American general who was stationed there through the 1950's. Their shape is rare and though most cloisonné forms were developed from Chinese archaic ritual bronzes, this form is rooted in Tibetan Buddhist ritual implements. “This example may have been used in a temple, but it also is somewhat secular in that it celebrates the advanced craftsmanship required to create this type of item,” he says.

Among the other highlights in Session I are a finely carved Rhino Horn Cup (Estimate: $50,000-70,000); a Chinese porcelain Famille Rose Wall Pocket, Republic Period (Estimate: $16,000-18,000); a pair of 18th/19th century Sino Tibetan Gilt Silver and Jewel Mounted Butter Lamps (Estimate: $8,000-12,000); a large Chinese gilt Bronze Guanyin, from the Ming/Qing Dynasty; and a silver Korean inlaid Brazier (Estimate: $4,000-6,000).

The second session includes a large Chinese Landscape and Pine Rhinoceros Horn Libation Cup (Estimate: $30,000-50,000); a Qing White Jade Vase (Estimate: $20,000-30,000); a superb intricately cast 18th century Sino-Tibetan Parcel Gilt Bronze Figure of Avalokiteshvara (Estimate: $10,000-15,000)with much of the original pigments left on its face, eyes and hair; a Qing Dynasty Chinese 100 Boys Silk Panel (Estimate: $8,000-12,000); an intricately carved, pale stone Chinese Celadon Jade Censer, Qing Dynasty (Estimate: $7,000-10,000); a Chinese Carved Red Lacquer Circular Box, Qing Dynasty (Estimate: $6,000-9,000); and a 20th century Chinese Jadeite Standing Figure (Estimate: $3,000-5,000). Rounding out the sale are a large group of jades and snuff bottles.

“Jade has been and is still revered for various properties and several aspects go into pricing a jade,” says Mason. “Two of the most important things to look at when pricing a jade is the quality of the stone itself and the caliber of the carving. This censer was created from a good pale stone, and the carving is intricate and finely detailed.”
