The Art d’Asie sale that took place on 12 December and the online Art of Asia sale from 30 November to 14 December once again confirm Christie’s Paris’ promiment position in the Asian art market. The two sales achieved a total of €8,010,072 with the live sale totalling €7,230,888.

The highlight of the sale was a rare and impotant gilt-copper figure of Buddha from the early Malla period, 13th-14th century, considered the pinnacle of Nepalese art, which captured the attention of numerous collectors and was sold for 730 800 €.

Further highlights of the sale include:

A rare iron-brown-decorated 'gardenia' dish, Ming Dynasty, and a white and russet jade 'dragon' marriage bowl, Qing Dynasty, multiplied their high estimates by 9, reaching €718,200 and €466,200 respectively.

A remarkable performance can be noted for a Dehua figure of a seated Guanyin, China, Qing Dynasty, multiplying its high estimate by 13 and achieving €390,600.

Finally, the Collection of Dr. Kuo Fang-Chou's family from Taipei particularly captivated Asian art enthusiasts, reaching a total of €581,490, more than double its high estimate. In the online sale, a turquoise-ground famille rose porcelain vase adorned with flowers, Qing Dynasty was auctioned for €119,700, nearly 20 times its estimate.
