Japanese silver bowl latest oriental lot expected to ‘shine’ at our Spring Antique Auction

Wednesday, 26 February, 2020

An impressive Japanese silver bowl encircled by an intricate dragon design is the latest in a line of Oriental artworks to some under the hammer at Penkridge auction house Cuttlestones.

Consigned in the Spring Sale on Friday 5th March, the bowl carries an estimate of £3,000 - £5,000 – although, following the strong performances of Oriental works in recent sales it could well shatter its estimate, as auctioneer Dave Eglington explains:

“This really is an impressive piece – it carries the Jungin mark, which dates it to the Meiji period between 1868-1912 - or a short time after - and we anticipate strong interest not only from UK-based silver collectors but from Japanese bidders online, by telephone and commission bidding.”

The bowl will be one lot within an entire section dedicated to Oriental works in the 5th March sale – another highlight of which looks set to be a Chinese Famille Rose porcelain model of a pheasant, believed to date from the 18th Century Qianlong period, carrying an estimate of £300-£500. Dave says:

“Both of these lots are incredibly attractive pieces for any collector, but given the trend for wealthy collectors in Japan and China seeking to buy back antiques, the sky really could be the limit when it comes to what they achieve on the day.

Both lots will feature in Cuttlestones’ Thursday 5th March Spring Sale, with the online illustrated catalogue available from Wednesday 26th February. Viewing will take place the day prior to the sale between 10am & 7pm, and on the morning of the sale. To find out more, head to https://www.cuttlestones.co.uk/salecatalogue/FA050320.htm
