Over 300 lots of fine Asian carvings and works of art will be sold by Elite Decorative Arts
This Hongshan Culture jade ware piece with design of clouds carries a pre-sale estimate of $300,000-$400,000.
BOYNTON BEACH, FLA.- A Chinese Hongshan Culture jade ware piece estimated to bring a staggering $300,000-$400,000, a large Chinese Kangxi period red and blue porcelain vase, and an antique Chinese hand-painted lacquered wooden wall panel depicting dragons are just a few of the expected top lots at Elite Decorative Arts’ Fine Asian Carvings & Works of Art Auction.

The sale, totaling over 300 lots, will be held Saturday, Sept. 20, at Elite Decorative Arts’ gallery, located in the Quantum Town Center at 1034 Gateway Blvd. in Boynton Beach, beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Previews will be held Friday, Sept. 19, from 11-5, and on Saturday, the day of sale, from 11-1. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com.

The Hongshan Culture jade ware, having a design of clouds and calcification and crystallization throughout, may have actually been estimated conservatively. It was featured in the 2012 Spring Arts Auction at Macau Chung Shun, one of China’s most prestigious auction houses, where it was valued at $500,000 ($100,000 more than Elite’s high figure). The item is 13 5/8 inches long.

The large and impressive Chinese Kangxi period (1662-1722) porcelain vase is hand-painted in iron red and cobalt blue tones. It has gilt accenting throughout and depicts birds of paradise with flowers on branches and rock formations. It was previously purchased by the consignor from Ban-Lao in Paris and has a pre-sale estimate of $6,000-$8,000. The vase stands 18 ¼ inches tall.

The antique Chinese hand-painted lacquer wooden wall panel depicts five dragons among clouds with rock formations and is 32 inches high by 43 ½ inches wide (est. $8,000-$12,000). Also sold will be a circa 17th century (late Ming to early Qing dynasty) Chinese red cinnabar lacquer relief charger depicting lotus blossoms in a relief design, 12 inches in diameter (est. $10,000-$15,000).

An antique Chinese bronze cloisonné three-footed vase, standing 14 inches tall and with lion’s head handles and a floral and Buddha lion decoration over a light blue ground, is marked to the base Chien Long and should realize $25,000-$35,000. Also, a large Chinese hand-painted blue and white porcelain vase depicting flying dragons and flaming pearls, should hit $2,000-$3,000.

A pair of Chinese hand-painted enameled yellow ground famille rose vases, each one measuring about 11 ½ inches tall and depicting lotus blossoms with scrolled vines, will be offered as one lot, with a pre-sale estimate of $6,000-$8,000. The sides hold inline red zhuanshu calligraphy Qianlong (1736-1795) reign mark, which are of the period. A fitted presentation box is included.

An antique Chinese mottled green jadeite handled urn, featuring foo lion handles carved in relief, four inches in height, should garner $1,000-$1,200. The vessel is etched with beautiful scroll design and loop handles extending from the foo lion’s mouth. The pale green matric display patches of brilliant green apple and spinach green striations. The lot comes with a fitted base.

A Chinese silver and enameled wisteria box measuring 4 inches wide by 2 ½ inches tall, with a beautiful enameled floral design to the top and enameled wisteria hanging to the sides (weighing 12 troy ounces) should command $5,000-$6,000. Also, a hand-made Chinese coral and 14kt yellow gold ladies’ ring (size 11), custom made in the 1970s for $15,000, having a red coral bird of paradise with turquoise, lapis, peridot and amber accent stones, should reach $5,000-$7,500.

A watercolor on paper set in scroll depicting a rooster by Xu Beihong (Ch., 1895-1953), with calligraphy poems to the left and right, each having two red seals, with an image area of 39 inches long by 15 inches wide, is expected to rise to $8,000-$12,000. Also, a huge green Chinese celadon glaze bowl having an incised lotus blossom design throughout, made circa the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), 6 ¾ inches tall by 14 ¾ inches in diameter, should fetch $4,000-$6,000.

Rounding out just some of the day’s expected top lots is an important set of four antique Chinese panels, each one containing four hand-painted plaques (16 plaques total) depicting various birds (est. $1,000-$2,000). The plaques appear to be turn of the century, in newer wood mounts. The wood finish is beautiful, both front and back. The total length, with wood mount: 61 inches tall.
