LONDON.- Arthur Millner- Islamic, Indian, Himalayan and South East Asian Works of Art online auction from 3rd – 6th November 2014 finished last night with some very good prices particularly amongst the bronze images.

Arthur Millner’s Islamic, Indian, Himalayan and South-East Asian Art was most comprehensive since his first online auction at 25 Blythe Road in April 2013, with over 400 lots. Included were a large selection of Himalayan, Indian and Asian bronzes with some very good prices achieved. All prices include buyers premium.

This Nepalese gilt bronze figure of Vajradhara, dating from the 15/16th century, sold to a Chinese buyer for £28,800 against an estimate of £3,000 - £5,000. It was given as a gift by the previous owner who served as a diplomat in India during the 1960s.

Also, this Tibetan gilt bronze figure of Vajravarahi, from the 13th/14th century had an estimate of £7,000 - £9,000, and sold online for £15,600.

A Ming bronze figure of Sakyamuni Buddha, circa 17th century, sold for £7,200 (with an estimate: £1,500 - £1,800).

The Jain bronzes all sold well, and included this bronze shrine above, from Gujarat, western India, dated Samvat 1552/AD 1496, which sold for £1,920 against an estimate of £1,500- £2,500.

Wood sculptures also did well with a selection of architectural carvings going over their estimates, and among the buff sandstone sculptures a monumental Jain head, from the 8/9th century sold for £3,600. The metalwork also achieved some high prices such as a Bidri Talismanic bowl, circa 1800s, selling for £2,280 against an estimate of £500 - £800. Islamic tiles had some good interest with a 17th century Mughal Cuerda Seca tile selling for £1,560, well over its estimate of £600 - £800, as did three 16th century Ottoman Dome of the Rock tiles, probably from Jerusalem, which sold for £1,920 against an estimate of £600 - £800.

Arthur Millner says ‘I am very pleased with the results of this sale, particularly the Himalayan bronzes which continue to show strong demand, but we found considerable interest in all the different areas covered by the sale.’
