One highlighted lot is a large jade stone carved with the image of Guanyin and a child, seated close to each other and surrounded by trees. Guanyin, also referred to as the Goddess of Mercy, is associated with compassion.
Another lot of interest is a large yellow ground famille rose vase from the 19th century. The Chinese piece features intricately painted motifs and a Qianlong mark from the late 18th or early 19th century. A glazed square teapot, also from the Qianlong period, is available as well.
