Michael Bass and Noah Kupferman, Co-Heads of Department, Chinese Works of Art, New York, said“Our spring season of Chinese works of art sales achieved $45.6 million and were 94% sold by value and 89% sold by lot.  These figures confirm the continued strong demand for works of art from private collections with distinguished provenance and underline the in-depth strength of the market across all collecting categories, notably for jades, snuff bottles, huanghualifurniture, archaic bronzes and porcelains.  The Lizzadro Collection of Fine Chinese Jade Carvings and Works of Art more than doubled its pre-sale high estimate, and The Hildegard Schonfeld Collection of Fine Chinese Snuff Bottles was 100% sold.  With the sale of Fine Huanghuali Furniture from an Important Private American Collection and the world auction record price of $9.1 million achieved for the magnificent massive huanghuali plank pedestal table, Christie’s reaffirmed its commitment to offering the highest quality Chinese furniture and demonstrates its position as the leader in this category.”
