Valuation Evening: Focus on Asian Art

Leonard Joel’s inaugural Asian Art Specialist Appraisal Evening yielded some gems which will feature at the upcoming ‘Asian Art, Classic Furniture & Objects auction in October.

144In particular, we were delighted to secure this spectacular museum quality Japanese Arita ware ‘kraak’ dish, with V.O.C (Dutch East India Company) insignia. Dating from around 1680 and featuring a vivid underglaze blue design, it is extraordinary to uncover such a rare, surviving example of wares directly associated with one of the colonial monoliths of trade in the Far East. Asian art specialists Trevor Fleming, (Japanese art) and Sally Robin, (Chinese art).
