Our latest auction of Fine Asian Works of Art took place for the first time in central London at Asia House as part of the Asian Art in London 2016 programme of auctions. Featuring 318 lots of predominantly Chinese origin, the sale attracted a room of international bidders.
Head of sale Lee Young remarked: “Yet again there was an eye towards quality and quantity; positioning ourselves during Asian Art in London week was beneficial, combining an easy to reach location and an evening sale time we avoided clashes in what is a very congested week for collectors to negotiate.”
