Fall Fine Asian Art & Antiques Auction - Auction Review
[阿什本，弗吉尼亞州，9月13日，2019]9月6、7日奧克裡奇拍賣行 (Oakridge Auction Gallery)內上演著一輪又一輪的緊張競價。
奧克裡奇拍賣公司值成立五周年之際，迎來了第十屆Fine Asian Art & Antiques大拍，本次拍賣共呈獻646件拍品，分為兩天《中國古董藝術品》《中國書畫》《鼻煙壺》《中國珠寶》四個場次，吸引到了世界各地的眾多買家線上線下同步參與。其中《鼻煙壺》為奧克裡奇首次推出的專場拍賣，現場競爭激烈，多位鼻煙壺收藏家爭相競價。盡管關稅等問題屢屢被提及，但拍賣結果令我們對中國藝術品的市場信心十足。隨著一聲聲落槌音響起，一件件藝術珍寶喜得歸宿，被收藏愛好者爭相舉牌囊獲。
至此，奧克裡奇拍賣行 (Oakridge Auction Gallery) 2019年秋季拍賣圓滿落幕。在此感謝各位藏家朋友對奧克裏奇的鼎力支持。我們期待在十月十九日的西方藝術春季拍賣會與各界藏家朋友，同行及媒體朋友再續藝緣，我們將秉承一貫傳統，繼續為藏家們尋求來源可靠、傳承有序的藏品，力求將最上乘的拍品呈現給大家。
[ASHBURN, VA, SEPTEMBER 13, 2019] September 6 and 7 saw the main exhibition space of Oakridge Auction Gallery of Ashburn, VA transformed into the site of intense bidding between live, telephone, and online bidders. Many of those present in the auction salon had flown in particularly to take advantage of the annual Fall Fine Asian Art and Antiques auction, which coincided neatly with New York’s Asia week in art auctions.
Marking the 5th anniversary of Oakridge auctions, the 10th biannual Fine Asian Art & Antiques brought a total of 646 lots to the auction block, from archaic jades to Imperial porcelains, Chinese paintings and calligraphy, and a special selection of exquisitely wrought snuff bottles and Chinese antique jewelry. The competition online and in house was fierce, with several new bidders from the Snuff Bottle Society interested particularly in the first of the inaugural special sessions. Among the more staggering sales of that session was a snuff bottle ornamented with a Qianlong Imperial Poem, which was picked up by a European collector at the final price of US $22,140 (including premium).
Although many bidders expressed concerns at the impact of tariffs on Chinese-American commercial trade levied by the Trump administration, new measures of which were introduced at the outset of the month, the final auction results testify to the continued interest in the Chinese art market. At Oakridge, the thought of tariffs had little real impact on the crack of the auctioneer’s hammer and the skyward-thrust paddles of the live and phone bidders.
Among the highlights of the auction were Lot 176, a Rare Imperial Blue and White Moon Flask Vase with Yongzheng Mark and Period, which came from a private collection in Northern California, and a Blue and White Porcelain Plaque with Three Birds by Wang Bu from a Canadian collection, both of which realized a price of US $319,800 (including premium). The Multi-Tiered Carved Cinnabar Lacquer Box from the Qianlong Period also fared well on the block, realizing US $159,900 (including premium). All in all, the auction was a resounding success, with the final hours merely seeding anticipation for the next Fine Asian Art and Antiques high-end auction, to be held in March 2020.
Oakridge Auction Gallery cordially thanks all of its bidders and consignors for continuing to choose Oakridge for the sale and acquisition of fine Asian antiques. We look forward to resuming our auction cycle with a dynamic blend of European, American, and international art and antiques in our October 2019 Around the World in 80(+) Lots auction.
