BOULDER COUNTY, CO.- unveiled its May 17 auction this week as the fourth in a series of specialized auctions planned for 2013. Asian Art through the Ages features art pieces from across Asia and showcases examples from every period in the continent’s illustrious history.

“Even if you do not specialize in Asian art, you can’t help but be taken by the beauty of the art of this enigmatic and complex region,” says Teresa Dodge, Executive Director and co-founder of Antiquities Saleroom.

Running at more than 415 lots, Asian Art through the Ages will appeal to a wide variety of tastes and interests, Dodge says. The auction begins with exquisite ancient Asian art pieces, created long before the immense and powerful Chinese dynasties took the world stage. The first 12 lots include Neolithic stone and pottery objects, dating back more than 4500 years. Each piece has been carefully curated by private collectors from across the U.S. and is a fine example of the period and form it represents.

The auction continues with an array of Chinese, Southeast Asian, and Persian art created under dynastic rulers whose immense power impacted Asia and the world beyond. These pieces include a series of beautiful royal daggers and sabers bearing the maker’s mark of Asad-O-lah, a royal sword maker of 16th century Persia.

A group of incredible Chinese snuff bottles and Japanese netsuke from two prominent collectors will bring the auction into the modern era. These pieces are truly museum quality, and several of them have been featured in museum collections. The collectors have spent decades refining their collections and are now sharing them for the first time.

Antiquities Saleroom invites you to peruse their stellar offerings that reflect a highly diverse variety of Asian Art through the Ages. Auction start at noon EST on Friday, May 17, 2013. Bids may be placed through a variety of methods - absentee (including absentee online), by phone (by prior arrangement) or live on auction day through The auction catalog is online and ready for viewing.
