This online auction is dedicated to Japanese Art commissioned for Europe and the influence this had on porcelain manufacture in Europe. This sale explores the trading relationship between Japan and Europe, as exemplified in particular by the ceramics and lacquer, presenting collectors with an opportunity to purchase pieces from this fascinating period, and estimates range from £500 to £80,000.
In the latter part of the 17th century Japanese ceramics arrived in Europe through the Dutch East India Company, and many grand palaces and houses amassed great collections of Kakiemon, Imari and Arita porcelain which were richly displayed in magnificently designed schemes, such as those by Daniel Marot for the court of Queen Mary II at Kensington Palace in London.
In this year, which is 400 years since the beginning of Japanese Porcelain in the province of Kyushu, the sale looks at the influence of Kakiemon designs on the Meissen factory, near Dresden, which was under the patronage of the Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, Augustus ‘The Strong’.
