After 25 years in the auction business, Chiswick Auctions has seen thousands of objects consigned and sold in their Saleroom. For their Specialists, some of the most memorable items are those with interesting provenance or items consigned by unassuming clients. From a 50p car boot find which then went on to sell in an excess of £4,000 to a recently broken ‘peach cup’ that was carefully restored and sold for £21,250, their Asian Art Department is rich with stories. To celebrate these stories, they are delighted to announce the upcoming specialist sale, Chinese Art: 100 Stories.
The specialist sale, taking place on Tuesday 1 June 2021, will bring together 100 stories (100 being an auspicious number in Chinese culture) and will celebrate both traditional Chinese stories depicted on objects and the personal stories objects hold. This carefully curated sale will allow the works of art to speak and tell the stories of the past, present and future.
Prospective clients may bid in person (subject to capacity), online via Chiswick Auction’s own bidding platform, by telephone or absentee bidding as normal.
After the sale, purchased lots can be collected using their Click and Collect service.
