The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is delighted to announce a preview of Christie’s Hong Kong Autumn Auctions of Important Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art with Rosemary Scott and Pola Antebi who will guide members through this season’s sale highlights.

Among the highlights are two themed sales, Chinese Archaic Jades from the Yangdetang Collection Part II, and Multifarious Colours – Three Enamelled Qianlong Masterpieces, a 3-lot sale dedicated to the legendary yangcai technique of overglaze painting with enamels of the Qing dynasty. Multifarious Colours includes a highly unique yangcai brocade flower jar, of which only two other known examples displaying such an unusual design exist. Likely inspired by traditional Japanese design, the imperial potters in Jingdezhen borrowed the general composition but reinterpreted the design as finely depicted flower-heads in the yangcai palette. The history and background of these works will be discussed alongside other highlights.

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.

Members are reminded that as the preview takes place before the public are admitted, this event is strictly limited to current members only. A limited number of places are available, and pre-registration is required. Drop-ins will not be entertained. Members are further reminded that photography is not ordinarily permitted.
