DALLAS – Dallas Auction Gallery will hold its first all-Asian auction March 10 during the traditional Asian auction month. The auction will begin at 6 p.m. Central. LiveAuctioneers will provide Internet live bidding.

Last year the family-owned company saw a marked increase in the demand for Asian art, furniture and pottery at auction with many pieces selling well over their estimated selling value.

“Asian items are among the hottest selling items we auction,” said Scott Shuford, president of Dallas Auction Gallery. “Our auctions pull a large international audience, specifically from the Asia region, and at any time we can have bidders from over 35 different countries in addition to our loyal local following.”

The sale includes 317 lots from an extensive local collection plus other quality consignments from around the world. Auction highlights include a superb collection of antique gilt bronze Buddhas, a large group of finely carved Chinese ivory, a pair of Chinese Qing cloisonné tripod censers on stands, a Chinese Qing Qianlong Imperial blue and white porcelain He-shaped pot, a pair of Chinese Qing carved spinach green jade bowls, and much more.

For details call 214-653-3900.
