Showcased in the upcoming July Asian Sale, offered by WR Auction Gallery, is a Chinese bronze Buddha potentially created in the Qing dynasty. The Qing dynasty was the last imperial dynasty in China, ruling from 1644 to 1912. Chinese Buddhism is one of the country’s oldest foreign religions and balances the principles of Taoism and Mahayana Buddhism. A Chinese porcelain snuff bottle can also be found in the sale. This bottle can likely be traced to the Qianlong period. Reigning from 1735 to 1796, Qianlong was the sixth emperor of the Qing dynasty and the fourth to rule over China proper. This piece is decorated with potted flowers and stands 3.25 inches tall.
Also offered is an 18th-century white and blue porcelain jar with a landscape motif, as well as a bronze food vessel and a Chinese bonsai jade and stone flower tree. Visit Bidsquare to view the entire catalog and register to bid.
