The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a private preview of Bonhams’ Hong Kong Autumn Sale of Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art with Gigi Yu, who will guide members through this season’s sale highlights.
Very few underglaze-blue and copper-red dragon moonflasks produced during the Qianlong emperor’s reign (1735–1796) have survived. Their colour-glazed counterparts are even harder to come by. Of all colours, those in a turquoise-coloured glaze are exceedingly rare, with no more than two examples known to exist to date. One of these is the Liddell Moonflask, which has a distinct lime-green underside.
Other highlights of the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art sale includes a pair of Clair-De-Lune glazed beaker vases from the Qianlong era as well as a white jade and russet carved bixie of the Han Dynasty (206 BCE–220) .
Gigi Yu is the head of the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art department at Bonhams Hong Kong, spearheading all Chinese Works of Art businesses in the region as well as supporting global sales of Chinese Works of Art. Gigi is a graduate of the University College London, and has a Master’s degree in Arts of China from University of Glasgow and Christie’s Education. She has a deep interest in snuff bottles, Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain and jades.
