The Chinese, Silver, Fine Art Auction, offered by Elite Auctioneers, is a sale of fine pieces anchored by many excellent entries from China. Of the more unusual and rare works is an Italian Neoclassical table. The circular black marble top has a central inlaid micro mosaic roundel. The table is possibly from the studio of the renowned craftsman Cesare Torreggiani.
Another splendid piece up for bid is a Chinese hand-painted and enameled Famille Rose porcelain sculpture. It depicts a seated Hotei Buddha holding a string of beads. A four-character Zhuanshu mark is impressed on the bottom. The Hotei Buddha is almost always shown smiling or laughing, as he is in this example, thus his nickname in Chinese, the “Laughing Buddha.”
Two eye-catching painting are attributed to Francois Lafon, including an evocative oil painting laid over board depicting three women harvesting flowers from a planter. The picture is signed in the lower right and mounted in a wooden frame. View any of these lots and register to bid on Invaluable.
