Chiswick Auctions is pleased to announce its upcoming Asian Art auction which will take place in our London saleroom on Tuesday, September 1st at 11am. Following our highly successful Asian Art auction on May 5th, the upcoming sale promises to include exciting material for seasoned collectors, dealers and new collectors alike.
The auction will include more than 250 lots of Chinese, Japanese, Indian and South East Asian objects across a wide range of material and styles including jades, bronzes, porcelain, cloisonné enamel, paintings, snuff bottles and textiles.
Highlights of the sale include a good selection of Kangxi porcelain (lots 22 to 31) and a range of snuff bottles, led by a collection from the Connell estate (lots 77 to 93). A cizhou stoneware figure of Shoulao, dating to the Ming Dynasty (lot 43), finds a close comparison in a piece in the British Museum formally in the Eumorfopoulos collection.
The selection of furniture in the sale includes a large and impressive mother-of-pearl inlaid hardwood day bed dating to the late Qing Dynasty with inlaid dream stone panels and deeply carved and pierced details (lot 155).

On offer, there are also a number of ex Spink textiles including a Sino-Tibetan silk brocade depicting twenty five rows of three Buddhas woven in flat gilded paper and polychrome silk (lot 179).
A finely painted wooden box Mongolian dating to the late 19th Century presents a compelling story of the cross-cultural synergies afoot across the Tibeto-Mongolian landmass at the time and blends indigenous Mongolian artistic traditions with those of Russia, Tibet, central Asia and China (lot 182).
