The sale of Chinese Export Art totaled $1,737,875/£1,042,725/€1,268,649. The top lot was an important silver Brandywine bowl, which realized $317,000.
Jennifer Pitman, Head of Sale, Silver, remarked: “We are very pleased with the excellent results achieved by the Important American Silver sale. The tremendous sell through rates attained by the auction are indicative of the renewed interest within the market for American colonial silver, demonstrated by the sweeping success of The Wunsch Collection. With estimates ranging from $500 to $150,000, every lot within The Wunsch Collection found a buyer among an audience of both new and seasoned collectors. We now look forward to continuing Americana week with the sale of American Furniture and Folk Art.”
