The present lot comes from the esteemed collection of C. Ruxton Love (1904-1971) and Audrey B. Love (1903-2003) who met while sailing to China in 1926. He was Secretary to the U.S. Ambassador to China and she was undertaking a tour of the Far East with her mother, Edythe Guggenheim Josephthal. The Loves were avid but discerning collectors who acquired superlative examples of fine and decorative art representing multiple cultures from around the world. The couple were generous patrons, lending and donating works of art to numerous museums including the Metropolitan Museum, New York, the Louvre, Paris, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. A single-owner auction of their collection including many Chinese works of art was held at Christie's New York, 20th October 2004.
