This week, we're celebrating the year of the Tiger with some of our favourite lots from Adam's recent Chinese New Year Auction. These lots showcase Asian culture in all it's culture, from the Ming dynasty to the Qing dynasty.
It was chinese objects of art week this week at adam's to celebrate the chinese new year. And what a week it was as it saw peices such as this Jade archaistic vessel up for sale. This 20th century object of art featrures two dragon handles with loose rings as well as low-relief decorations and is the perfect addition to a themed room or to add to a themed event.
This Ming Dynasty, 16th-17th century piece had to make our top five this week due to its beautiful design raised on a tapering oval foot. This stunning libation cup forms part of a wider Ming collection assembled over 20 years, with pieces either bought privately or at public auction.
This pick features a standing meiren together with a matching wooden stand, an accompaning lotus brushwasher. This sculpture tradtional orinetal colours, matertials and overall design, so it was a no brainer including it in our top five lot picks from the chinese new year auction at adam's.
This pair of wanli style cloisonne objects of art are perhaps our favourite from this weeks selection. These two pieces are a fine example of art from the Republic / Minguo period both feature chiselled dragon handles and lotus base. Due to their bright colour enamels these objects of art are simply stunning to look at and so had to appear in our selection for this week.
This set from the Qing Dynasty, 19th century has been finished in cobalt blue with a heavenly palace scene. This object of art is special as it tells a story and features tradtional oriental antique design. In our opinion, its the perfect piece to round off this week's top picks
