The first day of the Autumn Majestic sale highlights the Frank Cowan Collection of early English furniture. The catalog offers cupboards, chests, coffers, and chairs from across the 16th and 17th centuries. This auction, hosted by Thomaston Place Auction Galleries, also presents a wide range of Chinese pottery dating from pre-1500 BCE through the Qing dynasty (1644 – 1912 CE). Included is a Chinese water jug from the Majiayao culture of the Neolithic period. This piece features a bulbous body with a tall, flared neck.
Over 400 lots are on offer. Among them is a Chinese moon flask with a flambé glaze. Flambé glaze is a distinctive technique achieved by firing ceramic glazes containing copper. The method first appeared during the Ming dynasty. The available 18th century moon flask features splashes of red and streaks of blue glaze.
