This bowl-shaped vessel dates back to the Zhou and Shang dynasties. It features two hanging ring handles.
A Japanese Rinpa-style four-fold screen is also available. The Meiji-era screen features a painting of a crane flying away from a snow-clad tree branch. The auction will also showcase a selection of vases, bowls, and vintage snuff bottles, including a Chinese white jade alms bowl. The bowl belongs to the Qianlong period.
