The Oriental Ceramic Society is pleased to announce a special preview of highlights from Sotheby’s Spring auction led by Nicolas Chow, Deputy Chairman of Sotheby’s Asia and International Head of Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art. Among the highlights is the sale of the H.M. Knight Pink-Ground Falangcai Bowl, and a rediscovered imperial heirloom handscroll by Qian Weicheng, bequeathed by the last Emperor Pu Yi to his younger brother Pu Jie. In addition to these highlights, the auction will present an outstanding collection of porcelains, works of art, as well as jades which are sure to inspire OCS members.
