The upcoming October auction from Fine Estate offers a selection of decorative and ethnographic art. Among the highlighted lots is a pair of rare huanghuali horseshoe-back armchairs from the late 20th century. Huanghuali wood first originated in the Yaxian region of Hainan in China. Often used in Chinese furniture, the popularity of the wood can be dated back to the Ming dynasty. Each available chair features a curving back-splat above the seat. An inset single panel timber rests above a stepped apron.
Another lot of interest is a 10th-century Indian sandstone statue of Vishnu, an important Hindu deity. The sculpture portrays Vishnu on a stepped base holding various items. The upper section features an elaborate scrollwork pediment. Tribal arts from the Philippines and Africa are also on offer, as well as a collection of fine jewelry and vintage collectibles. Visit Bidsquare to view the entire catalog or to place a bid.
