Following the success of the October 2018 sale, the second installment of the Chinese art collection assembled by Sir Quo-Wei Lee (1918-2013) features a selection of more than 40 lots of the finest imperial porcelain and jade. Highlights of the sale include a Yongle blue and white ‘rose’ conical bowl and a Qianlong white jade barbed gu vase of the finest quality.
Sir Q.W. Lee was a banker and philanthropist well-known for his passion for collecting outstanding Chinese works of art. This collection is notable not only for its scale and scope but as an unerring reflection of Sir Q.W. Lee’s legendary diligence, and integrity as the consummate perfectionist of his time.
