Freeman’s April 13 Asian Arts auction is led by exceptional Chinese vase forms, including a gilt-repoussé-embellished cloisonné vase and a pair of cloisonné enamel gilt metal gu-form vases. The sale puts 17th and 18th century Chinese craftsmanship front and center with a finely crafted set of wooden horseshoe armchairs and a set of Huanghuali chairs, a square table, and a scholar’s chest. Collectors of Chinese jade will find several unique opportunities in a selection of intricate carvings depicting mythical beasts, cranes, and luohans. Freeman’s Asian Arts department continues to bring remarkable works of Chinese fine art to market; Asian Arts features an elaborate, large-scale silk-embroidered tapestry from the late Qing dynasty as well as ink-on-paper works by Qi Baishi and Wu Changshuo.
