Ancient Skills, New Worlds: Twenty Treasures of Japanese Metalwork from a Private Collection- September 12 at 10AM
Among the highlights of the week is Ancient Skills, New Worlds: Twenty Treasures of Japanese Metalwork from a Private Collection, a sale completely devoted to the finest examples of metal work from the Meiji Era. In addition, this year marks the 150th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration, one of the key dates in the history not just of Japan, but of East Asia as a whole. Leading the collection includes a large and outstanding rare documentary bronze incense-burner, Meiji era (1868–1912), circa 1880 (estimate: $90,000-120,000). This major work includes a classical-style winged Pegasus, a motif not seen in traditional Japanese art. While no catalogue illustration has been found to confirm the speculation, it seems more than likely that it was exhibited outside Japan, perhaps at the 1878 Paris Exposition. Further highlights include a mixed-metal model of a hawk with an en-suite lacquer stand by Tomonobu, Meiji era (1868–1912), 1898 (estimate: $100,000-125,000), an exquisitely crafted figure of a hawk that were widely admired by the Japanese elite; a rare pair of large bronze hōō bird and tortoise okimono ornaments by Muroe Kichibei (1841-1903), Meiji era (1868–1912), circa 1880, (estimate: $60,000-80,000), a striking, boldly modeled pair of ancient Chinese mythical animals; and a rare large bronze charger depicting Takashima Ōiko and Saeki Ujinaga, Meiji era (1868–1912), circa 1890–1900 (estimate: $50,000-60,000), a rare example of later Meiji-era metalwork with a design taken from the work of one of the most celebrated artists of the time, the painter and print-designer Tsukioka Yoshitoshi.
