Bonhams presents antique Chinese collectibles in their upcoming Chinese Works of Art auction. Chinese period furniture like the pair of Qing dynasty Huanghuali horseshoe-back chairs are a featured collectible. Among Chinese furniture materials, the Huanghuali wood is distinguished by its translucent surface and sweet fragrance. The carved backrest and the front beaded apron represent Chinese furniture of the Qing period.
Qianlong porcelain articles are another highlight of the auction. A finely carved ‘chicken bone’ jade ‘marriage’ bowl is a notable piece. The carved designs like the vines with melons signify the family and future generations, whereas the butterflies represent marital bliss. These marriage bowls are an auspicious wedding gift in the Chinese culture. Porcelainware, jade articles, ruby glassware, bronze figurines, and paintings are also a part of the auction.
