Welcome to Galerie Zacke’s bi-annual auction of Fine Chinese Art, Buddhist Sculptures and Japanese Works of Art. Large detail images for each item, taken from all possible angles and in impeccable quality, can be viewed here:


The sale encompasses 187 lots of carefully selected and curated Chinese Works of Art from categories such as cloisonné, jade, hardstone carvings, organic materials, bronzes, porcelains and ceramics, paintings, glass and textiles. Among the most noteworthy are a Rhinoceros Horn ‘Hibiscus’ cup from the 16th century (lot 10), a ‘Mudan Ting’ porcelain bowl, Daoguang mark and period (lot 31) and a superb ‘Seven Immortals’ jade mountain from the late 17th century (lot 55). Within the thoughtfully chosen group of Chinese Snuff Bottles (lots 72-102) we find an imperial ‘golden amber’ snuff bottle (lot 79), a material which is almost impossible to find. Among the group of Buddhist sculptures is a very large Zanabazar school Buddha Shakyamuni (lot 114) and an important schist head of goddess Hariti, Gandhara, 3rd century (lot 134). The Japanese works of art section surprises the connoisseur with two stunning and published lacquer pieces from the collection of the late Heber R. Bishop, New York (lot 166 and 167). Further highlights are an extremely fine cloisonné enamel teapot by Namikawa Yasuyuki (lot 158) and its companion milk jug (lot 159).

Condition reports, provenance information and literature references are stated in each listing.
