NEW YORK.- Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, held the series of Asian Art Sales at Rockefeller Center with Art for the Way of Tea, a unique sale completed devoted to Tea-ceremony related items. The collection, which was brought together over several decades by a private Asian collector, spans a time zone of four hundred years (16th through 19th centuries), consists of 40 lots and is expected to realize in excess of three million dollars.

A Massive White Porcelain Jar, Choson Period (18th Century), sold for $1,272,000. Pine Trees in Moonlight attributed to Hasegawa Tohaku sold for $880,000.

“The first day of the Spring 2007 edition of Asia Week at Christie's was witnessed by a balanced mix of Western and Eastern bidders who actively participated in person, on the phones and online. Japanese and Korean Art and Art for the Way of Tea realized $6,610,180 with as a top lot the magnificent and massive Choson period full moon jar which realized $1,272,000, setting a world auction record for white porcelain from the Choson period.
