This year’s annual Chinese Export Art sale will be led by the fourth tranche of the famed Tibor Collection, including models of porcelain birds and animals as well as a rare pair of European court figures. The sale also features a selection of China Trade paintings from India House, the storied New York club-- most notably a portrait of Houqua, the most powerful and wealthy of the Chinese merchants who made up the Co-Hong in Canton. Other offerings include garnitures of vases, ‘mistake’ wares and European subject pieces from the collection of Dr. Shirley Mueller.
Bidding begins 11 January, and items are available for viewing by appointment at our Christie’s Fine Art Storage facility. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to view items from the sale.
