Qing Dynasty Imperial Horse Saddle and Ru Yao Porcelain Lead the April Private Collection SaleApr 02, 2022 15:00 EDT
The April Private Collection auction at Jumbo Auction House is filled with rare and historical collectibles from the East. From a Qing dynasty horse saddle to Ru Yao porcelain, the auction offers more than 500 lots. The Qing dynasty (1644 to 1912) was the last imperial dynasty of China. A Qing dynasty imperial horse saddle will be available in this auction. It is a well-preserved example of what Chinese emperors used when riding horses. The wooden horse saddle is framed with intricately decorated gilt bronze. Other items from the imperial collection include Kesi robes, porcelain bowls, carpets, and decorative items.
Examples of Ru Yao or Ru ware from the Song dynasty are also available in the auction. Ru wares are rare because their production only happened for a limited time and was controlled by emperors. Fewer than 100 pieces have survived. A Ru Yao vase with its characteristic pale blue glaze is available in the auction. Another rare find among the lots is a Khotan jade bamboo patterned bangle. It has a diameter of 5.9 centimeters and weighs 56 grams. Khotan was a kingdom located at the branch of the Silk Road, which contributed to its wealth and success. More jade items, paintings, jewelry, soapstone, snuff bottles, porcelain, carvings, and coins from prominent private estates will be offered in the auction.
