Ming Furniture – An Asian Private Collection

After our record-breaking sale of the Dr. S. Y. Yip Collection of Ming furniture in 2015, Sotheby’s is honoured to present another superb private collection. The owner of this collection studied fine arts in his youth and later became interested in the connoisseurship and history of Chinese furniture. Demonstrating the owner’s exquisite taste and high standards, every piece in this collection was purchased from the gallery of Grace Wu Bruce who is revered as “the Queen of Huanghuali” in the world of Chinese furniture. Rarer still, most of the pieces have been widely published, and their quality rivals similar pieces in some of the world’s greatest institutions.
