Chi Fan Tsang, Senior Vice President, Specialist Head of Department, commented, “This season saw the inaugural inclusion of a group of Japanese works of art which was well received, particularly those works related to tea culture. Robust prices were once again recorded for ceramics, while we witnessed enthusiastic bidding for archaic jades, setting the stage for the much anticipated Yangdetang Sale in November”.
