The upcoming auction, presented by Stair, offers fine and decorative art from around the world. Among the highlighted lots are several chinoiserie pieces. In the 17th century, trade between China and France expanded. This increased the demand in France for Chinese-inspired art. Coming from the French word “chinois,” or “Chinese,” chinoiserie décor embodied French interpretations of Chinese art. One chinoiserie lot available in this auction is a pair of ironstone vases. Landscape scenes decorate the bodies of the vases while dragons jut out from the covers.
Bidders will also find several porcelain works in this sale, including a Derby sculpture group depicting a young couple. The man holds a basket full of grapes, feeding them one by one to the woman. Two dogs rest beside the pair. Derby porcelain was produced from the 1750s until the factory’s closing in 1785. Those interested in chinoiserie can also consider a porcelain pagoda and waterfall figure set. View each lot and register to bid on Bidsquare
