A.H. Wilkens Auctions & Appraisals’ upcoming Asian Works of Art auction will particularly highlight Chinese jade and porcelain works, ranging from the Yuan dynasty to the Republican period. An 18th-century vessel from the Qing dynasty covered with celadon jade is among the key lots. Designed to resemble a historical bronze gui, or ritual vessel, the base of the piece is stamped with a Qianlong mark. This period of the Qing dynasty boasted finely-crafted jade carvings that imitated ancient forms. Another Qianlong piece on offer is a porcelain bowl with blue floral roundels. It is presented with a certificate of authenticity.
Leading the fine art offerings is an oil painting from Vietnamese Impressionist Lê Phổ. A leading figure of 20th-century Vietnamese art, Lê Phổ’s paintings often showed vibrant arrays of flowers and vegetation. Traditional Vietnamese women and families were other common themes in his work. This painting, executed before the 1970s, is signed by the artist in both English and Chinese. For more information on the artist, view this Auction Daily article. A six-panel lacquer floor screen, an 18th-century Tibetan thangka painting, and various snuff bottles round out the upcoming auction.
