June Fine Asian Art & Antiques Auctions
Total Price Realized $1.58 Million!
Oakridge Auction Gallery had another whirlwind weekend as we hosted our June auction of Fine Asian Art & Antiques to great success. Thanks to the hard work of our fine auctioneers, Mr. Clarke Peacock and Ms. Jennifer Clary, as well as our many phone and online bidders, the auction went smoothly. The total hammer price for all 500 lots over two days was $1.27 million USD.
Our greatest success of the weekend came from our star lot, the Tibetan Buddhist gold butter lamp. It surpassed its high estimate, selling for an incredible realized price of $272,800 USD. It is a rare object, both because it is made of solid gold--an uncommon material for Tibetan butter lamps--but also because it is inscribed with a royal dedication, making it a significant historical work. Cursory research has already been conducted by scholars into its connection with royal figures of the Guge-Pu rang kingdom.
On behalf of everyone at Oakridge, we would like to thank all of our bidders for participating in our auction. We look forward to having you join us again soon!
