Chinese Dominates Highest Prices in 500-Lot Ceramics Auction...

20th October 2019

As usual, a wide selection of items spanning many centuries formed the greater part of Lawrences’ recent sale of Ceramics and Oriental Works of Art. A black basalt and gilt plaque, probably Wedgwood, depicting two figures took £11500; a trio of wine glasses were in clear demand as bids went to £2750; and a Baccarat carpet ground paperweight dated 1848 measured just 7cm across but was contested to £3750. A local gentleman’s collection of glass, sold as 30 lots, took just over £6800.

From further East, a group of five Indian subjects, some of a decidedly erotic nature, made £4250 but Chinese items dominated the highest prices of the day. The best results included a pair of gilt bronze and carved wood Immortals at £6875; a gilt bronze brush pot that made £7500; an exquisite carved white or pale celadon jade horse, just 8cm long, that leapt to £9375; a large blue and white fish bowl, 62cm across, that made £12,500; and a carved bamboo brush pot, just 13cm high, that made £16,250.
