Anyone know Cardale Auctioneers?
Are people familiair with the Cardale Auction house in New York? When I look at their agenda, they have so many auctions each month. Also great results, but somehow these items look so modern to me?

What do you think?
With very scant descriptions and with photo's that are largely out of focus when enlarged they seemed to have achieved very high prices on some items. Hope for the buyers sake's all is well. A couple of the wood items look O.K. in the first photo but the blow ups are to fuzzy to see the details and there are no dimensions that I can find.
I went through some auctions of them on Liveauctioneers and strange but current auctions, all items have 0 bids. But all auctions in the past have 24 or 30 bids for almost all pieces. Even when a piece is brand new and described as a kangxi period piece, lot's of bidding and high prices.
I wonder if those are really bids.
Well, maybe I'm too suspicious, but the more I look at these items, the more I think there are not even a single real period pieces among them.
I don't know Cardale auctions etc.
I was very surprised at some of their realised prices. I am in the same camp as Michael. I was unable to fully expand the pictures without them blurring which is problematic in its self. Also the descriptions were vague.
Two lots I can comment on were #23 (nephrite jade bitong) and #24 (Wang Bu bitong). According to the auctioneers these sold for a lot of money. The jade is imo a 20th century product. The Wang Bu is not by the master but rather a attribute of sorts. Both are worth imo substantially less than the sale amount.
Personally I would be very careful about dealing with this auction house without further details on said interested lots etc. They also seem to have a lot of regular auctions. Personally I would prefer to deal with a more prominent house given the high prices achieved etc etc.
Six pieces of ru ware sold sold bargains. One inscribed with a poem ...
I am new here to the Forum.
I believe Avatar said it all.
I see there are a lot more of these fake selling auction houses. Most of them in the USA.
For example: Capitoline Auction
View upcoming and past auctions, place absentee and live bids and watch lots of interest all from Capitoline Auction Gallery
I mean, Imperial Qianlong and Kangxi mark&period, right 😆 :
IMPERIAL CHINESE FAMILLE ROSE TIBETAN VASE - QIANLONG MARK & PERIOD. BENBAPING QIANLONG SIX-CHARACTER SEAL MARK IN IRON-RED AND OF THE PERIOD. 26.5 CM TALL 16 CM WIDE. PROVENANCE - FROM A PROMINENT TEXAS COLLECTION
IMPERIAL CHINESE FAMILLE ROSE ENAMELLED BOWL - KANGXI MARK & PERIOD. 16.3 CM WIDE. 8.3 CM TALL. PROVENANCE - FROM A PROMINENT TEXAS COLLECTION
Do you think they succeed sometimes in selling these to anyone?
Stay far away. All brand new items with fake realized price meant to give credibility to the auctioneer.
The Kangxi mark and period bowl made my day😂
@shinigami Yes, and it is from a "prominent Texas collection" no less! Wonder what else will be coming out of that collection soon to an auction house near us all? That mark is so ridiculous. What the hell were they thinking?
One has to take the alleged 'prominent Texas collection' with suspicion!
With no actual name reference the above provenance means nothing.
Sadly these references are used far too often with auction/other rooms etc.

The art of calligraphy - and for the ancient Chinese it certainly was an art - aimed to demonstrate superior control and skill using brush and ink. Calligraphy established itself as one of the major Chinese art forms during the Han dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE), and for two millennia after, all educated men were expected to be proficient at it.
