This February 16th at Clars, the Asian Art Department will offer a diverse array of Asian masterpieces that span several cultures and historical periods.


A special highlight is the 19th century Chinese celadon jade tripod censer and cover. This exquisite piece, measuring 10.25″ across, is of a globular form adorned with stylized phoenixes in raised relief. It boasts peony branch handles with loose rings, is supported on three short, splayed legs originating from lion masks, and is topped with a domed cover crowned by a mythical beast-shaped finial.

Another notable highlight is the Ming dynasty fahua ceramic figure of a Luohan. This piece, characterized by the vibrant and intricate fahua glazing technique, reflects the religious significance and artistic depth of the Ming dynasty.

We will be offering additional highlights from the Qing dynasty, including a Chinese famille rose and underglaze bluebird and flower hu-form vase which showcases intricate and colorful depictions of avian and floral motifs. A Chinese enameled 100 deer hu-form vase is another masterpiece available that features a multitude of deer in various stances — symbolizing longevity and prosperity. Lastly, the Chinese jade and hardstone embellished lacquer wall panel up for auction is a testament to exquisite craftsmanship, combining luxurious materials in a harmonious design.

Also to be featured is a remarkable late 19th century Japanese inlaid bronze koro and cover, crafted by Ohashi San’emon (1851–1895) during the Meiji period. Measuring 14.125″ in height, this piece is distinguished by a pixiu finial and is elaborately decorated with auspicious symbols in copper, silver, and gilt. The inscription, “Dai Nihon Ohashi Sam’emon seizo,” on the underside further authenticates its origin.
