"Worth" the wait...
Bought in the 1980s, this Chinese celadon vase was hardly considered a rarity. Today the market for rare Chinese porcelain and works of art is one of the best performing markets worldwide.
In light of the robust market fueled by collectors in Asia, our firm recommended a sale at auction to capitalize on the market strength.
This rare 18th century vase, nicknamed “Chrysanthemum” for its unique shape, was sold at Christie’s New York during the Asia Week sales where it outperformed its estimate and realized $375,000.
