Un autre regard : Collection Edric van Vredenburgh

April 2022 | Paris
Sotheby's is honoured to present the sale of the Edric van Vredenburgh Collection in Paris. The extraordinary works of art presented offer a different perspective, contrasting the traditional cabinet of curiosities, familiar in Europe since the Renaissance.

From an exceptional group of hard stone carvings, porphyry vases and mortars, an Italian relief of a lion in Porto Santo marble, extraordinary Alaskan objects and headrests from Central and South Africa, to Japanese Jumonji spears from the Edo period, clubs from Melanesia and Polynesia, an incredible Mughal marquetry box and a magnificent Hawaiian lei niho necklace from the Nathaniel Bright Emerson Collection, the van Vredenburgh Collection offers a breath-taking journey through time and civilizations, providing collectors with a rich array of examples of the creations of man, nature and time.
