With high estimates ranging from $200 to $60,000, bidders from all spectrums of the Asian art collecting field will be pleased to find there is something for everyone. The sale will be composed of jade and shoushan stone carvings; Chinese ceramics and Sino-Tibetan bronze deities; horn and ivory carvings; and traditional antique Chinese furniture.

Leading the charge for Chinese ceramics is lot 421, a Qing Period porcelain vase with carp design. Boasting a high estimate of $30,000-60,000, this reticulated vase features foreign lotus scrolls borne on lobed tipped branches with a reticulated body featuring a central medallion depicting a pair of carp.

From the assortment of blue and white porcelains, a standout can be found at lot 386, an 18th/19th Century blue and white porcelain yuhu vase. The pear-shaped body features a landscape scene and caries a six-character Qianlong Mark on the base.

From a local collection, collectors will be pleased to find a plethora of horn carvings. Connoisseurs of rhinoceros horn carvings will be delighted to find at lot 241 an 18th Century Chinese rhinoceros horn carved libation cup. The sides feature a continuous figural scene of scholars in a wooded river retreat with detailed bamboo trees in deep relief and the base carved with an auspicious shou design. This rich toffee tone rhinoceros horn carving carries a $15,000-20,000 estimate.

Highlighting the collection of jade carvings is lot 182, a Ming Period imperial white jade hu-shaped vase. Carved in an archaist style, this imposing imperial Hetian jade vase is carved with typical Taotie-like masks on the body with the openwork handles in the form of mythical beasts. The domed cover is surmounted by a Qilin finiale and supported on four legs in cabriole form. It is expected to surpass its $12,000-15,000 estimate.

From the bronzeware is a pair of 19th Century Chinese cloisonné imperial yellow vases at lot 291. Designed with auspicious peaches borne on branches and each possessing a distinct body, the pair is expected to fetch $15,000 to $20,000.
