The Qing dynasty was the last Chinese empire to dominate the globe, and its surviving relics speak to its power and beauty. Sarasota Estate Auction’s upcoming collection highlights many of those statement pieces within the decorative and fine arts. This auction shows a long history of wealth from East to West, ranging from a carved wedding and opium bed to palace-sized Persian rugs. More modest English and American paintings provide context to the auction’s comparative decadence.Comparing past and present luxuries is what unites a gilt Ormolu vase with a French mantle clock, and a handmade jade ring with a 1955 Packard Clipper car. Antique Chinese vases and bowls share form and function with a silver Tiffany & Co. tea set, serving as examples of cross-cultural beauty. Works from artists as diverse as Salvador Dali, George Post, George Chinnery, and others help bring the museum into the palace with this auction. Register to bid on Bidsquare today.
