The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a preview of Christie’s Autumn sale of Important Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art with Rosemary Scott and Pola Antebi.

This season Christie’s offers exquisite works from archaic bronzes, archaic jades and Buddhist works of art to those that represent the height of Qing dynasty refinement, many from renowned collections. Among the highlights are two works from the Yongzheng period (1723”“1735); a ruby-ground falangcai cup with prunus, and a rare blue-and-white moon flask featuring magpies and prunus. A massive Tibetan-Chinese gilt-bronze figure of Vajrabhairava Ekavira of the Ming dynasty will be the highlight of the Buddhist works, while a Xuande period (1426”“1435) blue-and-white stem bowl featuring dragons represents the highest achievements of underglaze blue porcelain. Christie’s are also offering an impressive collection of archaic jades dating from the late Shang dynasty (13th”“11th century BCE) to the Six dynasties (220”“589).

Rosemary Scott is International Academic Director of Christie’s Asian Art Departments, and a former Curator of the Percival David Foundation in London, and the Burrell Collection in Glasgow. She is also a past President of the London Oriental Ceramic Society.

Pola Antebi joined Christie’s Hong Kong in 1990 and is the International Director of the Chinese Works of Art Department in Hong Kong. Her areas of expertise include Imperial ceramics, jades and works of art from the Yuan to the Qing periods. She is currently a member of the Hong Kong Management Committee.
