Sotheby’s Chinese Ceramics Sale Smashes Records

Sotheby’s Hong Kong sale of fine Chinese ceramics and works of art was a record breaker with the auction bringing in a staggering HK$1.15 billion instead of the estimated HK$336-479 million.
Nicolas Chow, Sotheby’s Deputy Chairman and International Head of Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art, said: “Chinese Works of Art took their place on the world auction stage today at Sotheby’s.
The standing-room only audience broke into applause numerous times as the company had the privilege of offering extraordinary works of art and porcelain from four remarkable single-owner collections.”
Items on sale included a magnificent Yellow-Ground Famille-Rose Double-Gourd Vase, Qianlong Mark and Period which sold for HK$252,660,000 (US$32.4 million).
