Showcasing lots from Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Middle East, India, China and the Far East, and the Pre-Columbian Americas, all items in this auction have been legally acquired and are legal to sell. According to Co-Founder and Managing Director Teresa Dodge, “We pride ourselves in full compliance with UNESCO and various national treaties and we feel that is the only way to insure confidence in our clients. All items offered for sale are guaranteed to be authentic and not ‘in the style of’ any ancient culture, or your money back.”

According to Geoffrey VanderWoude, Antiquities-Saleroom’s latest hire (and graduate student of Classics at the University of Colorado in Boulder, perusing this latest auction offering is like taking a tour of the art of the ancient world. “It’s an amazing array of art that one would normally only expect to see in the highest-end galleries or museums! This auction selection includes spectacular pieces I would never get to see or handle in any of my courses” continues VanderWoude.

Highlights to the Egyptian selection include An Egyptian Granite Lower Torso of a Striding King whose identity, interestingly was erased from history when the inscription on the reverse was deliberately obscured in ancient times; two exceptional mummy masks – one from The New Kingdom, the other from the Late Dynastic/Ptolemaic Period; An Egyptian Faience Amulet of Sekhmet; an incredible Egyptian Polychrome Stucco Head of a Lioness; An Egyptian Gilded Head of an Ibis with Christie’s provenance and a selection of painted Egyptian Cartonnage Panels.

From the ancient Roman Empire, the auction highlights include an exquisite Matching Pair of Bronze Eagle Chariot Fittings; an Ex-Christie’s Roman Marble Sarcophagus Fragment and a huge Roman Marble Bust of a Roman Citizen who took a risk making his business in the provincial empire, along with interesting pieces of Roman Glass, remarkably designed and well-preserved.

Among the Indian and Indo-Greek selections includes A Greek Marble Head of A Woman - a product of “Alexander the Great’s” conquest of India, and an intricate paintings in A Mahabharata / Ramayana Hindi Book from the 19th century.

Highlights from China, Indo-China and Japan include bronze, sandstone, and stucco busts of Buddha; An Archaic Chinese Zhou Dynasty Ritual Food Vessel, bronze bells and mirrors; numerous Khmer Bronze examples, including A Khmer Palanquin Bronze Hook in the shape of a dragon; A Bronze Votive Tablet of Buddha and A Published Japanese Haniwa Terracotta Figure.

Finally, a large number of exceptional pieces from the ancient Americas complete the auction where you will find Pre-Columbian art of the Nazca, Moche, Chancay, Inca, and Aztecs. A few of the major highlights include A Rare Valdivian Stone Fish Palette, whose provenance includes being sold by Sotheby’s; A Nazca Polychrome Killer Whale Vessel; A Panamanian Gold Openwork Lizard Pendant weighing in at 76.5g; A Superb Veracruz Standing Warrior; an Ex-Sotheby’s Colima Ceremonial Dish that has a tree with tropical birds perched on it and finally, one of the most outstanding Mayan pieces you will find - A Mayan Polychrome Cylinder - Kerr Rollout 8277, which is not just a beautiful piece, but an extremely important part of Mayan history.
