A magnificent very rare large blue and white ‘dragon’ jar, guan Xuande four-character mark in underglaze blue and of the period (1426-1435). 19⅛ in. (48.5 cm.) high. Estimate: HK$60,000,000-80,000,000 / fetched HK$562,500

That Dragon Vase  was found in Swiss – passed from French grand-mother through family. It was an umbrella stand, on display outside. The MET has a similar piece – part of a set. It was meant for the London sale but the piece was underestimated and undervalued… So it was sent to HK after further examination. 


IMPERIAL INSCRIBED CLOISONNE ENAMEL AND GILT-BRONZE RUYI-SHAPED PANEL, QIANLONG PERIOD (1736-1795), Estimate HK$12,000,000 – HK$15,000,000 ($1,552,592 – $1,940,741), fetched  HK$15,640,000

 That cloisonne enamel piece comes from the Bishop collection. It was Emperor Quianlong present to his mother: A poem from the emperor allowed to identify it. With that Ruyi shape and the exceptionnal colors, it is a beautiful piece. 

Miscallaneous from the Golden Ages…
