NEW YORK, N.Y.- Following the success of last week’s Asia Week sales series at Sotheby’s New York, which brought an incredible $71.3 million for Chinese porcelain and works of art, today’s auction of Property of a Palm Beach Private Collector achieved $8,397,649, almost double the pre-sale high estimate*. The auction was led by a strong group of over 80 pieces of Chinese porcelain and works of art, most notably A Rare Large Chinese ‘Famille-Rose’ ‘Millefleurs’ Altar Garniture bearing six character Qianlong marks and of the period, which more than doubled it’s high estimate in selling for $2,098,500. The garniture has provenance going back to England at the end of the 19th century, and is further distinguished by the fact that all five pieces have survived together.

Other highlights from the Chinese works included a group of six Rare Chinese ‘Famille-Rose’ ‘Soldier’ Vases offered over two lots–one as a pair and one as a group of four–which achieved $1,565,000 in total. Today represented possibly the first time that six vases of this rare, large and highly-decorative form have appeared together in one sale. Additionally, A Fine Chinese ‘Ru’-Type Vase, Qianlong Mark and Period soared past its pre-sale estimate of $60,000 in achieving $794,500.

Eighteenth-century English furniture also performed strongly, led by A Fine and Large George II Giltwood Side Table in the Manner of Matthias Lock, circa 1750 that brought $362,500, more than triple its high estimate, as well as A Pair of George III Giltwood Mirrors that sold for $122,500.
