The Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art sale on 13 May features over 350 stellar examples of high quality works, with a rich offering of dynamic, rare and beautiful works with stellar provenance, many of which are coming to the market for the first time in many decades. The sale presents works dating from the Shang Dynasty (circa 1600-1100 B.C.) through to the 20th century, spanning a wide array of media including ceramics, jade and hardstone carvings, painting and furniture. The rich offering of porcelain is led by The Andrew Look Collection which comprises 40 lots of Daoguang Imperial Porcelain (1821-1850) (lots 300-339). Part of the proceeds from the sale of this collection will be donated to charity. Among the notable porcelain elsewhere in the sale, the cover lot is a rare and finely enamelled pair of famille rose jars and covers, Daoguang period (1821-1850), from the Property of a Distinguished Swiss Family having been acquired in Paris in the early 1950s.
