Korean Art leads iGavel Auctions spring Asian sales
Chinese Cizhou Pottery Pillow, Song/Yuan Dynasty.

NEW YORK, NY.- This Spring season iGavel Auctions mounted three simulataneous Asian art auctions with over $2,000,000 in combined sales. Buyers were attracted to many fine examples of Chinese bronzes, jades, furniture, porcelain; Japanese woodblock prints, and other Asian items. However, the strong results of Chinese and Japanese items were superseded by Korean art sold by Lark Mason Associates.

The top lot, a Korean eight-panel screen, 19th century depicting a Korean-court scene, went into extended bidding for 32 minutes and finally closed at $225,000 with 40 bids, more than four times its high estimate. The nine Korean art lots combined sold for over $316,900. Of these nine lots, seven went into extended bidding.

“Once again, Korean art achieved stunning results on the iGavel auction site,” said founder Lark Mason, whose Lark Mason Associates auction platform is one of the leading purveyors of Korean art. “Bringing these great works of art to an international clientele is very gratifying.”

Other highlights included several items from Lark Mason Associates, Petrie Rogers Art, and Quinn’s Auction Gallery. A Chinese 20th century zitan table sold outside of its estimated range for $106,000; eleven Chinese bronze mirrors from the Han to Tang Dynasties sold well at a combined $76,500; and a Song/Yuan Dynasty Cizhou Pillow sold for 40 times its high estimate for over $40,000. A Sino-Tibetan gilt bronze Bodhisattva sold by Quinn’s Auction Gallery for 24 times its high estimate brought $48,750. Petrie Rogers had a Chinese, Qing Dynasty painted and embroidered silk panel sell for over ten times its high estimate at $23,125. A group of 112 lots of Japanese woodblock prints from the 18th century to 20th century had much competitive bidding with 92% selling for a total of over $104,000.
