DALLAS, TX.- A Large and Rare Chinese Blue and White Porcelain Windswept Jar, from the Ming Dynasty, was the top lot, selling for an impressive $118,750 during the inaugural Asian Art Signature Auction held April 2 by Heritage Auctions. Collectors of Asian Art drove the final total sale results to $1,477,744, with many of the pieces exceeding estimates.

"We are tremendously pleased with the results of sale," Heritage Auctions Asian Art Specialist Richard Cervantes said. "Prices were strong for extraordinary lots across nearly every category: blue and white porcelain from the Ming and Qing Dynasties, jade, bronze, paintings and more. This sale meant a great deal to us as Heritage Auctions' first stand-alone venture into the Asian Arts market.

We are proud and very grateful to all who participated."
