The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a preview of highlights of Christie’s Autumn sales of Chinese ceramics and works of art with Pola Antebi.
The auction includes a magnificent blue and white and copper-red decorated ‘dragon’ tianqiuping vase dating to the Yongzheng period hailing from a noble family, a Yongle period blue and white basin formerly in the collection of the Idemitsu Museum of Arts, a group of fifteen ceramics from the Song to Yuan dynasties consigned by an Asian private collection led by a very rare Ding white-glazed kundika dating to the Northern Song dynasty. Among the highlights is The Tianminlou Collection with 15 iconic examples of Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain, all widely published and exhibited. Particularly renowned for its blue and white as well as imperial porcelain from the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, the collection has been showcased at numerous prestigious museums and art institutions, including the Shanghai Museum, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the Chang Foundation in Taipei.
Pola Antebi is Deputy Chairman and International Director of Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art at Christie’s Hong Kong. Her areas of expertise include imperial ceramics, jades and works of art from the Yuan to the Qing dynasties.
