Christie’s Chinese and Japanese Export Silver online sale presents the Collection of Myrna and Bernard Posner. The couple began collecting silver and decorative arts shortly after they were married in the 1950’s. Each having a keen eye for exceptional quality and rare forms, the Posner Collection ranges from presentation to utilitarian silver. The Posner’s intellectual curiosity and sense of adventure guided their collecting as evidenced by the eclectic selection of 74 silver lots that are on offer. The collection of Chinese and Japanese Export Silver includes an exceptional array of trophies, jardinières, tea wares and exquisitely decorated flatware servers- all displaying the sense of imaginative exoticism sought by collectors of export silver. The estimates range from $600 - $6,000, with something on offer for connoisseurs and emerging collectors alike.
