Calling all antique lovers!
Maynards will be hosting an International & Asian Art Auction on March 12 – 13.
The auction will offer a unique range of jades, ceramics, other antiques and fine arts. Combined, the collections are valued from $1 to $1.5 million. Maynards is hoping to surpass last year’s outstanding jade auction which resulted in a several pieces going for $1.3 million.
This year, Maynards is proud to feature pieces from the collection of the late philanthropist and prominent Iranian business man, Mr. Habib Sabet. Several of Mr. Sabet’s pieces will be up for auction on Wednesday March 13th from 9:20 p.m. onwards. They include:
In addition to the Sabet family’s collection, Maynards’ auction also includes an “Order of the Double Dragon” medal awarded to a Scottish missionary, Dr. Dugald Christie, by the Emperor of China. Dr. Christie was awarded the medal for his work in dealing with the 1912 Plague in China. Dr. Christie’s medical service to China has been documented in several books including the Thirty Years in Moukden 1883-1913.
All pieces can be viewed online in advance of the auction at http://www.maynardsfineart.com under the “Auctions” page.
