The Oriental Ceramic Society of Hong Kong is pleased to announce a preview of Christie’s spring auctions with Rosemary Scott and Pola Antebi.
This spring, Christie’s are presenting a special sale to celebrate their 30 years in Asia. 30 Years: The Sale will feature 30 lots that represent the most significant and important pieces in their respective categories. Christie’s will also present Classical Chinese Art from the Sui to the Song Dynasties, representing art of the earlier eras, and The Imperial Sale/ Important Ceramics and Works of Art. Among the sale highlights are two rare works in animal form: an iron-spot decorated celadon lion, dated to the 6th”“7th centuries; and a white-glazed candle stand in the form of an elephant. The imperial sale features a rare Yongzheng period (1723”“1735) faux bois and grisaille-decorated brushpot with a landscape, and a blue and white meiping vase of the Yongle period (1403”“1425).
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.
Due to the limited number of places for the auction preview, this event is open only to current OCS members.
