Hong Kong Spring Sales Results | 1 – 5 April

It was a momentous sale season in Hong Kong with records falling and prices soaring. Leading the Modern and Contemporary Art Evening auction was Andy Warhol’s Mao, a 1973 masterwork that sold for HK$98.5 million (US$12.7 million). The Brushwork II: All the World’s a Stage auction achieved the rare white glove designation as all 25 works succeeded in finding buyers, bringing the total to HK$89.6 million (US$11.5 million).

The unequivocal headline of the week was the phenomenal success of the CTF Pink Star diamond, which sets the world auction record for any diamond or jewel. The 59.60-Carat Oval Mixed-Cut Fancy Vivid Pink Internally Flawless Diamond sold for HK$553 million (US$71.2 million) to Hong Kong jeweller Chow Tai Fook, making it the highest price for any work ever sold at auction in Asia. Not to be outdone, an Exceptional Xuande Bowl sold for $HK229 million (US$29.5 million). Driven by strong prices throughout the week, the Spring Sale series totalled a remarkable HK$3.17 billion(US$406.1 million).
