Highlighting the sale is a pair of Chinese inlaid black lacquer cabinets elaborately decorated in gilt and finely inlaid with hardstones, Peking glass, mother-of-pearl and bone. The cabinets have an equally impressive provenance: they are known to have been in the British Embassy, Peking, and were formerly in the collection of Lord Killearn, British Ambassador to China between 1926 and 1933.
Dating to the Kangxi period (1661-1722) is a Chinese Fahua glazed three-piece garniture of immortals. Probably used for personal devotion, the garniture comprises two Guanyin with a child and a figure of Shaolou, all seated on lotus bases.
