Chinese, Japanese and Himalayan Works of Art, Asia Week In New York City
Below are a few highlights across the spectrum being offered. Including a stunning contemporary carving from Japan.
All three of the major auction houses I think have done an outstanding job given the current circumstances by balancing the need for "Social Distancing" and of course finding sensable workarounds to accommodate interested bidders to examine and preview the objects on offer.
All three have identical preview options, simply call, make an appointment and head on over. They are all willing to be as flexible as possible to keep things moving smoothly and provide the services all three companies are known for.
