NEW YORK, NY.- Lark Mason Associates sale of Asian, Ancient and Ethnographic Works of Art Achieves $1,076, 618 including BP. Leading off the two-session sale which closed on April 26th and 27th was a pair, each one far exceeding their $30,000-50,000 estimates.

Commenting on the Zonghli paintings, Lark Mason, says: “Both Zhongli paintings were hovering under $20,000 on the morning of the sale’s closing. It was in the final minutes that they rose, doubling and tripling the high estimate. The oil on canvas portraits, bought by the consignor’s parents in Beijing in 1987, hung on the wall together for nearly 40 years. We are delighted that both portraits are returning to Asia with their new owner.”

“This sale had a number of superb works of art with competitive bidding from buyers from China and Europe,” says Mason. Two of the standouts that caught their eye was a Qing Dynasty Chinese Porcelain Enamel Decorated Fishbowl realizing $123,139, with 57 bids and a Chinese Blue and White Porcelain He-Form Vessel and Cover, with Daoguang Mark that attracted 45 bidders hammering $78,125.

Among the other top lots that sold were a 20th century Chinese Celadon Jade Qilin Group, with 44 people extending the bidding 29 minutes after the closing to hammer $44,251; a Korean Painting of a Gwaneum (Guanyin) Gouache on Silk, Josean Dynasty, that sold for $41,250; four 19th century Samson Hexagonal Enamel Decorated Vases, Three Part of a Set and One other, realizing $19,375; a Ming Dynasty Chinese Bronze Figure of a Buddha, ringing up $14,375; a pair of Tibetan Qing Dynasty Painted Paper and Silk Sutra Covers for $12,500; and a Qing Dynasty Chinese Carved Bamboo Brush Pot for $12,500.
