The 30 January auction of Asian & African Works of Art was yet another busy and exciting auction. One lot to note was 1027, a lovely early 20thcentury Chinese Wucai vase, depicting flowers and mythical creatures, selling for £550.
The top selling spot within the auction was taken by lot 1031, a delicate pair of Chinese coral carvings of females standing by a gold tree with semi-precious beads, which sold above estimate for £1,600.
Another successful item, which bucked the general trend of ivory, was lot 1115 - a gorgeous Japanese ivory okimono, modelled as a geisha holding a bird cage. The beauty of her face and robes attracted much interest and she soared over estimate to fetch £950.
A Chinese bronze metal warrior figure, lot 1133, was popular pre auction and the hammer cane down on him at £700.
