A Feast from the East: Oriental Stars Shine in Ceramic Sale...
A broad selection of Decorative Arts and Ceramics at Lawrences recent Fine Art Autumn auction proved to be a huge success.
Oriental pieces dominated the higher prices: a Chinese Canton famille rose armorial part service was eagerly contested to £5250; a Chinese famille rose `Bajixiang` bowl, sold with a tankard, made £7500 a large Chinese Chia Ch’Ing blue and white jar and cover, circa 1800, made £8125 and a rare Chinese export tureen in an unusual Rococo design for the French market made £8125.
A late highlight in a highly successful auction was a Chinese hand-painted folding screen. Standing 208cm high and over 270cm wide, the brightly decorated panels appealed sufficiently to take £17500.
