Rare Asian works of art to be auctioned at Crosshall Manor, Cambridgeshire
Doucai Medallion Bowls.

EDINBURGH.- Edinburgh auctioneers Lyon and Turnbull will be selling Fine Asian Works of Art at a sale on December 2nd 2014 at 10am at Crosshall Manor Cambridgeshire. Comprising artworks from many private Scottish collections and featuring items owned by famous Chinese art collectors, the 550 lot sale includes an exceptionally rare celadon glazed 'Dragon' charger. The charger comes from the same collection as a blue and white 'dragon' charger that made the headlines at Lyon & Turnbull’s 4th June sale 2014 selling for £427,250.

Lee Young International Director at Lyon & Turnbull said “With the popularity and success of Asian Art in London, which this year was held from the 30th October — 8th November 2014, moving our Asian Sale closer to the capital will make it easier for buyers to view, and therefore participate, in the sale. London is the central point of Asian art in the UK, and for the first time in the history of Lyon & Turnbull Asian art department we have taken the decision to move our biannual Asian art sale on 2nd December to a Cambridgeshire location closer to London – specifically - Crosshall Manor, St Neots.”

The sale includes selected items from the estate of the late Lady Mary Stewart, well known author of romantic novels, including her most famous, the Arthurian trilogy: The Crystal Cave (1970), The Hollow Hills (1973) and The Last Enchantment (1979). Passionate about collecting Chinese Works of Art, Lady Stewart put together a remarkable group of items during her lifetime. Asian works of art collected by Lady Mary Stewart in the 1960’s and 70’s, including a Jade Celadon and dark brown Chimera from the Ming Dynasty circa 1600-1640 £8,000-12,000, a Celadon jade group from the Qianlong period £25,000-£35,000 and a carved Rhinoceros horn libation cup £8,000-12,000.

The sale also includes a collection of porcelain from the prestigious Leonard Gow collection, including an engraved portrait of the prolific Glaswegian collector himself. Most impressive are a pair of yellow and green ‘dragon bowls’. Estimated at £4,000-6,000, the bowls are decorated in the centre with a medallion of a dragon chasing the flaming pearl.

Sourced from a private Scottish collection there is a pair of Doucai ‘Butterlies and Flowers’ medallion bowls. With an estimate of £20,000-30,000, the bowls are finely painted with four circular medallions with the flowers of the four seasons; lotus, peony, chrysanthemum and plum blossom, framed by stylised scrollwork. There is also a fine pair of Tang Dynasty grey pottery horses superbly sculpted with an estimate of £20,000-30,000 from The Max Lowenson collection.
