This Auction is a result of collaborative efforts between Alexandre Millon, Mr. Olivier Leydét and Asian art expert Jean Gauchet. Millon is one of the most influential auctioneers in France today. His empire is both nationally and internationally recognized and his presence extends from Belgium and France and into Switzerland.

Mr. Gauchet is a leading Asian art expert whose cabinet is located in Nice. Mr. Gauchet’s expertise has gained him quite a reputation in Europe as well as in Hong Kong and China. He has worked and consigned pieces with numerous auction houses including: Poly, Sotheby’s, Bonham’s, Christie’s and has consulted for Millon, their partner Asium-Auction in Paris, Var-Enchères in St Raphael and is often solicited for opinion on pieces. Well versed in many facets of Asian art, Mr. Gauchet also frequents art fairs and assists with private collection sales and acquisitions.

The inspiration for the first sale is not only the venue but also the vast and diverse collection of Asian antiquities that have been sourced from all over Europe, mainly from private homes and collections. Millon-Riviera and the art community are very excited for the upcoming sale and are optimistic about the quality and caliber of the catalog.

The auction will take place on December 7th 2017 at 1pm. Viewings are open to the public Monday –Wednesday, December 4-6th from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm.
