Freeman’s upcoming Asian Arts auction is led by a fine pair of Imperial Chinese “Balsam Pear” bowls, Jiaqing mark and period, and a pair of Imperial yellow-glazed porcelain bowls, Kangxi mark and period. The April 18 sale ushers in spring with elegant works with floral themes, from a massive Chinese porcelain charger replete with peony and plum blossoms to a rare pair of 17th/early 18th-century Chinese cloisonné vases decorated with auspicious symbols and birds and flowers. The nearly-300-lot auction features fine porcelain, art, important artifacts, and decorative objects from across Asia, including a rare and unusually large Vietnamese bronze drum (headlining a collection of early Vietnamese bronzes from the collection of James Brow and Anh Hoang Brow), a fine Gandharan schist figure of a seated Buddha from the collection of Ambassador David Morgan Bane, a pair of six-panel gold-ground folding “Tigers” screens by Japanese artist Okoku Konoshima, and a selection of Buddhist and Daoist sculpture. A broad selection of 17th- to early 19th-century blue and white and polychrome Chinese export porcelain rounds out Asian Arts, including an unusual selection of “clobbered” export porcelain wares seldom encountered in the United States. These carefully selected pieces offer rare opportunities for every collector and designer.
