Freeman’s upcoming Asian Arts auction will include a pair of Chinese Huanghuali yoke-back armchairs, a sancai-glazed pottery piece of a woman and baby, and a copper alloy figure of Akshobhya. The rare 17th- or 18th-century Chinese Huanghuali yoke-back armchairs featured in the auction measure 43 ½ inches high and 25 ½ inches wide. Both feature a serpentine crest on the wide center slat with carved slats on either side. The rectangular seat with an inset soft mat is joined by a box stretcher sitting over a shaped skirt with carved scrolls.
A copper alloy figure of Akshobhya, one of the Five Wisdom Buddhas, will also be showcased. The piece is thought to have originated in Nepal between the 14th and 16th centuries, or possibly earlier. The figure is shown sitting on a double lotus throne behind a vajra with the right hand touching the earth. Other items on offer include a very rare Chinese small sancai-glazed pottery figure of a woman and baby, a large blue and white “Kraak” porcelain jar, a Chinese carved white jade mythical beast, and more.
