Auctioneer’s Comment

Asian Art

A pair of Chinese vases are estimated to sell for £6,000-10,000* when they are being sold by Charterhouse in Sherborne in their April Asian Art auction. “Whilst we have a fantastic selection of Chinese, Japanese and other Asian ceramics, bronze Buddha’s, scroll paintings, silver, furniture and works of art, it is a pair of Chinese millefleurs vases which are one of the stand out lots in the sale for me.” Commented Richard Bromell.

“Painted in bright famille rose enamel colours with millefleurs, or a thousand flowers, they are wonderful quality and will appeal not only to Chinese mainland collectors, but also Europeans and of course the Americans who really go in for this look and design.”
