Oakridge is excited to announce its next auction: an Asian Art & Antiques sale packed with an array of impressive lots of Chinese art from throughout history. Scheduled for August 14-15, 2021, this auction will feature over 450 lots separated into two sessions: Session 1 beginning at 10 am EDT on August 14th, and Session 2 beginning at 10 am EDT on August 15th.
Session 1: Boasting over 200 lots, Session 1 is packed with amazing lots of Chinese art dating from the Spring & Autumn period through to the modern day. There are beautiful carvings in all shapes, sizes, and types of jade, and delicate porcelains that are rare and highly sought after.
Chinese blue and white lotus zun dating from the Yongzheng period. Lot 177 in Oakridge Auction Gallery’s August Asian Art & Antiques auction, August 14-15, 2021. Estimated at $22,000 - 28,000 USD.
The highlight of the session is Lot 177, an exquisite blue and white porcelain vase depicting delicate lotus and vine tracery. The body features a deep, cobalt blue glaze on a soft white ground. The strong shape of the vase with its sharp shoulder, wide mouth, and tall foot are reminiscent of ancient Chinese ritual bronze vessels known as zun. It has a pre-sale estimate of $27,000 - 35,000 USD.
Chinese carved jade table screen with a hardwood stand. Lot 68 in Oakridge Auction Gallery’s August Asian Art & Antiques auction, August 14-15, 2021. Estimated at $22,000 - 28,000 USD.
Other lots in this session include a mutton fat jade table screen dating from the 19th century estimated at $22000 - 28,000 USD, a large white jade carving of a fish dating from the Ming Dynasty estimated at $8,000 - 12,000 USD, and a celadon-ground porcelain censer dating from the early 19th century estimated at $8,000 - 12,000 USD.

Session 2: With over 200 lots, Session 2 features a number of pieces including bronzes, embroideries, furniture, and other works of art.
The highlight is none other than Lot 350, a magnificent Chinese gilt bronze statue of Guanyin which comes with a two-part gilt bronze stand. It is a beautiful and clear example of Ming Dynasty metalwork, with considerable areas of its gilt still intact.

This exquisite piece is estimated at $30,000 - 45,000 USD.
