Connoisseur Collection

Connoisseur Collection includes a spectacular diamond hourglass from De Beers, fine china from Hermes and Limoges, a first-edition Harry Potter and the Philosopher?s Stone by J.K. Rowling, a 27-inch gilded Sevres vase from the iconic former royal porcelain manufacturer, and a signed print from the Catalan Surrealist, Joan Miró. On the heels of the Noli Me Tangere sold at last year?s The Well-Appointed Life auction, an even rarer book by National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal, a first edition El Filibusterismo, is among the connoisseur offerings ? the first time that this piece of Philippine history is coming to auction. Also part of this sale is a special sub-category dedicated to Philippine Tribal & Ethnographic Art, including a fine early 20th century figurative house panel in wood with heavy encrusted patina and a decorative Ifugao warrior figure from the late 19th century representing artifacts that are of importance to the legacy of our heritage
