Our Fine Chinese Paintings & Works of Art sale on 12th November 2019 will feature twelve rare Imperial paintings from the Huang Chao Li Qi Tu Shi , or ‘The Illustrated Regulations for Ceremonial Paraphernalia of the Present Dynasty’ (lot 6). This book was commissioned by the Qianlong Emperor and contains more than thirteen hundred leaves of illustrations and texts explaining the specifications for items used in state ritual practices.
We will also be offering a massive black and celadon jade ‘yingxiong’ group (lot 123) depicting an eagle and lion-like beast. The carving comes from the collection of the Reverend Victor Farmer (1898-1977) who lived in China in the early 20th century.
Other highlights include an Imperial Qianlong six character mark and period zhadou (lot 180), a rare 18th century silk floss official’s hat and box (lot 43), a painting of a scholar and bamboo by Zhang Daqian (lot 5), and an Imperial Qianlong six character mark and period lacquer tea bowl inscribed with the poem Sanqing Cha, or ‘Three Purity Tea’ (lot 34).
Highlights will be on view at our Mayfair office and the full sale will be on view in Salisbury.
