We would like to express our deepest gratitude for your continuous support to Poly Auction Hong Kong as the Spring Auctions 2019 has come to a successful end. As a consolidation of our 13 sales, presented by Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art, Modern and Contemporary Art, Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, Jewels and Prestige Collections departments, we achieved a total sales figure of HK$939 million.
The preview and auctions were held in five consecutive days and we are very proud that the Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art Department realized two white glove (100% sold) sales in “Immaculately Exquisite - The Ten-Views of Lingbi Rock Retreat Collection of Early Ming Gilt-Lacquer Guandi and Chinese Ceramics” and “Brilliant Zitan - Selection of Five Important Furnitures from My Humble House”, of which an imperial and rare gilt lacquer bronze figure of Guandi fetched HK$55 million, becoming the most expensive Lot sold in Spring Auctions 2019.
The Modern and Contemporary Art and the Chinese Paintings departments jointly presented a section specially devoted in celebration of Wu Guanzhong’s centennial anniversary. His works, showcasing his creations from the 70s to 90s, were completely sold at a sum of HK$79 million. The Magnificent Jewels Auction fetched a total of HK$165 million, of which five Lots surpassed HK$10 million in sold price. Other highlights also include a sapphire and diamond suite by Harry Winston, which realized for HK$42 million, becoming the second highest Lot this season.
We would like to express our thankfulness once again. Our specialists are dedicated to providing the best collection possible and we look forward to our next encounter.
