Japanese Works of Art

Wednesday 14th November 2018. Starts at 14:00pm

The sale will start after Asian Art II on 14th November 2018.

Highlights include two rare cloisonné dishes by Namikawa Yasuyuki dating from circa 1903. These are rare examples of his later work and they illustrate his interest in landscapes, a subject rarely depicted in Japanese cloisonné enamels.

There will be about 100 netsuke and a selection of good-quality inro and ojime, together with a rare pair of articulated menuki from the Hartman Collection. 

Another highlight is a very rare and important Edo-period bronze incense burner signed Iseya Chobei, a name also found on a monumental and important figure of Amida Buddha at the Cernuschi Museum in Paris. 

The sale also includes a Meiji Period clock shaped as Daikoku's mallet with a small rat climbing upon it which was once offered to Baron Wakatsuki Reijiro (1866-1949) to celebrate his appointment as Prime Minister in 1926, and a 124cm long articulated Myochin-School model of a snake signed Muneyoshi. 

There are about 320 lots in the Japanese sale. Highlights will be on display at 17 Clifford St (2F), London W1S 3RQ between Saturday 3rd - Tuesday 6th November 2018.
