The Ming dynasty ruled China from 1368 to 1644. During this time, the country was popularized in the West by expanding trade and cultural ties. China also came to be known for its drama, literature, and sculptures. In the upcoming Eclectic Collection of Estates Worldwide sale, presented by Akiba Antiques, a set of archaic terracotta sculptures from the Ming dynasty is on offer. The pieces use intricate detailing and earthy tones to depict a male and female pair of servants.
The auction especially highlights decorative arts and a range of collectibles, accessories, fine art, and furniture. Among the lots of interest is an extendable dining room table designed by Theodore Alexander for Pavlovsk. The table is made of birch, maple, and chrome hardware and can be folded out to extend the circumference of the table. Several watches and jewelry items are also available.
