The auction will consist of more than 280 lots of fine Chinese ceramics and works of art from the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. Categories represented will be violet arenaceous (Zisha), china, jade, jewelry, bronze, furniture, painting and calligraphy.
A special item of interest is a Zhu San Song superbly carved bamboo brush pot, 5 5/8 inches tall, which has a $120,000-$200,000 estimate.
A violet arenaceous (zisha) teapot is one of more than 60 items—archaic age to Qing—from a California collector. More than 60 pieces of jade are consigned from an estate.
“We believe in honesty, and trust is our first priority. Our specialists all have many years experience and keep up the current market,” said Calvin Wong of Golden State Auction Gallery. He maintains the Chinese art (antique) market is the best investment tool of the 21st century, better than investments in finance and real estate.
