LARGE ARCHAIC FANGHU

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Bronze with partial gilding. China, Han and Song Dynasty, 2nd to 10th century An outstanding rarity is this very attractive hu vessel - the most widespread archaic vessel form similar to a vase – here in a rather edged variation known as fanghu. The tall foot has a quadratic base and four trapezoid walls. A similar, yet somewhat smaller design is repeated towards the mouth section. The body of the vase presents an elegant momentum which continues up along the entire neck. A taotie mask with some gilt areas is found on two of the vessel’s sides, their noses form eyelets suspending large rings. The other two walls each present a phoenix in raised relief, also suspending a ring, but from the body. The surface holds areas with a very pronounced patina which drastically adds to the overall effect of the vase along with the different-sized spots of gilding. On the not easily visible bottom of the inside is a quite large inscription with archaic characters (see photo). On the lower, strongly recessed bottom is a grid design in raised relief as well as green patina. In very good overall condition and complete, with noble age characteristics giving a powerful representative effect. HEIGHT 40,5 CM This fanghu was acquired by us at Spink & Son in London in 1994 before going to a larger collection. According to information from Spink at that time, this vessel originated in the Han Period and was reworked with a green lacquer patina and gilding during the Song, befitting for the veneration of antique objects at the time. 鑲金青銅造方壺。中國,漢與宋代。高40.5厘米。 Illustrated in our catalog ASIATIKA from November-December 1994 on page 40 (No. 43)

PITCHER WITH HANDLE AND RELIEF DECOR

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Glazed ceramic. China, Tang, approx. 8th to 9th cent. Typical Changsha ware with green-grey glaze similar to Seladon and fine craquelé. Rarely found in this size and as well-preserved! Flat, unglazed bottom, gently curved body, short neck with flared mouth. Stout, six-ridged spout, tall attached, ribbed, arched handle, further two ribbed band grommets. Three large, brown glazed fields on the sides presenting relief décor inside them.

The brown areas cusp towards the bottom in a trail ending with a drop formation. HEIGHT 21 CM From the former Swiss collection of Jürgen L. Fischer 浮雕紋帶釉陶瓷雙耳壺。中國,唐代,約8至9世紀。高21厘米。 The renowned collector of Chinese porcelain Jürgen L. Fischer lived in Ascona, located in the Swiss Kanton Tessin at Lago Maggiore. The extensive size of the collection is largely owed to the family’s fortune, secured by pharmacist August Fischer and his revolutionary invention – the world’s first adhesive made from synthetic resin, the famous “Uhu Alleskleber”, developed in 1932. Jürgen L. Fischer lived until 2013 and was an avid collector of Chinese porcelain whose astonishing taste encompassed a broad spectrum of types, of all sizes and with origins spanning across millennia. Jürgen Fischer passed on his comprehensive knowledge in numerous text books – among others, his large and very instructive book about the art of Chinese snuff bottles and also an antiquarian’s guide to Chinese art. Jürgen L. Fischer 先生是歐洲人收藏中國美術品第一個藏家至一。Fischer先生的祖父August Fischer 在 1932 年曾發明了所謂 “Uhu“ 膠水”,成為世界上第一種化學膠水,幫家庭經濟情況提高,讓其美術作品收藏天天增加。 Jürgen L. Fischer 先生失去於2013年,其收藏活動最多集中於中國個個時代,個大小以及個風格的陶瓷品。Jürgen L.Fischer先生的懂此學科很深,他也曾編幾本專門書籍。其中有關鼻煙壺以及收藏中國美術的專書最為出名。 A very similar example decorated in the same technique can be found in "Han Tang Taoci Daquan", Taibei 1992, page 512, and on page 515, also an example with a lion depicted under spout. Also in "Zhongguo Wenwu Jinghua Daquan”, Taibei 1993, no. 196

BIRD PHOENIX ON A TORTOISE

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Terracotta with painting. China, Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220), TL-tested age This large sculpture, exceptionally unusual in its form and thus particularly rare is displaying a very erect, standing phoenix feng, with big legs on the shell of a tortoise, the tail resting on it. The head of the phoenix expresses the creature’s noble character, proud and full of dignity – it is worth noting here that this feature was successfully delivered by using only simple means. The neck of the tortoise gui displays a backwards arching movement, which gives the impression that the tortoise is attempting to repel the phoenix, but could possibly also be a gesture of adoration. In China, the back of the tortoise and its flat plastron parallel the ancient belief of a flat earth and domed sky. The animal is also a symbol of marital stability as well as longevity, and – together with the snake – also believed to be the ruler of the North and in this context, a divinity. The phoenix or "cinnabar bird", on the other hand, embodies the South. This heavy grey clay terracotta was coated with a white base tone and then cold-painted. Remnants of this paint are still present, particularly in the design on the shell, but also in the form of red and black pigments. There are two firing holes as well as deposits of soil on the bottom. This piece was a burial object and tested for age by Oxford Authentication using TL-analysis. According to the certificate all of the four samples taken yielded the same result, indicating an age of 1400 to 2200 years. A minor flaw on one back leg of the tortoise, otherwise in rarely found good condition and complete. HEIGHT 54,3 CM From a North German collection 彩繪陶瓷朱雀騎玄武像。中國,漢代,經热释光法鑑定。高54.3厘米。 The certificate of Oxford Authentication No. C115a95 of 24 February 2015 is available.

Fischer 原始瓷器花形盤。中國,宋代。高3.9厘米,直徑14.7厘米。 The renowned collector of Chinese porcelain Jürgen L. Fischer lived in Ascona, located in the Swiss Kanton Tessin at Lago Maggiore.

IRON SCULPTURE OF A MARICI (ZHUNTI 準 提) ENTHRONED ON A BOAR

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Iron. China, Ming, approx. 15th century WITH DOUBLE-GOURD MARK. An extraordinarily rare form of the guardian deity going by the Sanskrit name Marici, who is also a Boddhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism. She is presented as a Bodhisattva in the work at hand, but also with rare iconography showing her as a one-headed, two-armed ashokakanta seated in lalitasana on a sukara (boar). In China she is known under the names Zhunti and also Tianhou天后, “Queen of Heaven”. She is a Bodhisattva (Pusa) that appears in many different forms and can have several heads simultaneously (among others a boar’s head), numerous arms and also appear as a warrior (especially in Daoism). At times she is depicted riding a chariot pulled by seven boars. Ashokakanta can also be ashokaghanta when she holds the ghanta (bell) and an ashoka-tree branch attributes. In this very rare depiction the boar is standing on a wide lotus base with large leaves in a rows. The animal has a fierce appearance, especially due to the mane spiked towards the back. Enchanting and at the same time very characterful facial features, which radiate the noble spirit of a Pusa (菩薩). Above the nose is a small urna. Very finely formed hairline, chain adornments around the neck reaching down to the naval, as well as arms and feet. The breasts, which are rarely shown naked as they are here, are delicate yet with a slight maiden-like swelling. The attributes held are the branch of an ashoka-tree (missing) and a bell which is also a symbol of femininity and wisdom. The chignon is adorned with jewels at the front and back, and small garlands hang from a band around the head. Severe corrosion due to age and rust-brown to black patina due to the properties of iron. A mark on the back is not legible, presumably seal-script within a double-gourd border. Very well-preserved, the hand in front of the chest has been restored. HEIGHT 39 CM From a German private collection, afterwards collection Sohel Ch., New-Delhi - Vienna 準提鐵像. 中國, 明代. 高 39 厘米.

A LARGE HEAD OF A BUDDHA

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Red sandstone. China, Song Dynasty, approx. 12th / 13th century A rare massive example of a complete head from a cave temple. The height of the head is easily double that of a normal human head and it can be estimated that the entire sculpture stood about 3,5 meters tall. The work stands out from other Buddhist depictions due to its emphasized contentment and character of joyful existence and indulgence in harmony, a trend characteristic of the upper class in china at the time (highpoint of a court-official culture). The head has a very round form with ears fitted closely to it and the earlobes are not elongated. The locks of hair stand out of the head with an almost dramatic effect and were once adorned with spirals carved in the round, twisting in a counter-clockwise- and (slightly less) clockwise direction. The ushnisha is an only slightly raised, smooth dome. The hairline forms a cusp in the center above the forehead and there is an urna symbolizing nobility and enlightenment above the nose. The heavy half-closed eyelids hold an important role in the overall expression. The enlightened look of all-knowingness, graciousness, mercy and leniency radiates his supernatural power on all who look up to him. The head also has an engaging profile. Some damages due to age, weathering, presumably also repairs. Remnants of a former color coating. Mounted in a dignified manner on a stepped, black quadratic base. HEIGHT (WITHOUT BASE) 38,8 CM From a German private collection, afterwards collection Sohel Ch., New-Delhi - Vienna 紅砂石佛尊頭. 中國, 宋代, 約12世紀-13世紀. 高 38,8 厘米.

THREE-HEADED BODHISATTVA WITH BUDDHA HEAD

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Fire - gilded bronze. Sino – Mongolian, approx. 18th century A rare and well-worked depiction partly as repousse (the base and seat), cast from the hip upwards. The attributes are missing, therefore the precise nature of the Bodhisattva is subject to speculation. The small Buddha head at the very top could possibly indicate an Ushnishavijaya (a form of the White Tara) or a variation of Avalokiteshvara. The three heads are fine in their details and smiling like the smaller Buddha head. There are flaming marks on their foreheads. On Buddha’s forehead is an urna. All four hands present delicately crafted fingers and show the demon-dispelling gesture (two fingers forming horns, the karana mudra), the mudra of discussion (vitarka mudra), which appears three times, and one hand shows the “generosity gesture” (varada mudra). The upper part of the bronze was cast in several parts – all four arms were cast separately. The condition of the gilding varies, but is very good in the lower parts. The faces were not gilt and there are remnants of paint in the hair. HEIGHT 21,3 CM From a Munich private collection. The object was acquired in 1984 from the collection of a Mongolian living in Germany. Aftwerwards collection Sohel Ch., New-Delhi - Vienna 青銅合金三頭菩薩與佛祖頭坐像. 中國-蒙古. 約 18 世紀. 高 21.3 厘米.

The part of his collection, which we here offer, was mainly acquired in the art trade of Vienna. The chief reason for his collecting activity, which he perpetuated with considerable specialized knowledge, sense for quality and great committment, was to establish a private Asian museum in his native city of New Delhi. Because of severe illness, it was impossible for him to realize his plan and he thus decided to submit us the entire complex of his "Viennese collection" for sale. 來自 Sohel Ch. 先生的舊藏 這本圖錄所紀錄的藝術品的大部分(約130件)來自 Sohel Ch. 先生的舊藏。這位收藏家是個來自新德里的古董拒買,曾有數年住在維也納。這次所介紹的藝術品主要來自他的維也納分點。他數十年的努力,知識和質量敏感都曾進入他的收藏活動,結果之一為在其城市,新德里,收藏到了一個原來屬於私人亞洲美術館的收藏的全部藏品。很不幸的是這位收藏家最近生病極為嚴重,無法實現自己原來對藝術藏品的願望,結果把全部維也納分店的收藏提供給拍賣公司給以賣出。

AN UNUSUAL SHOULDER CAPE

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Textile, some metal Gau, over 2000 gemstones. India, Ladakh, possibly 19th century A rare and unusual adornment with so many elaborate details that it is hard to describe each completely. It is shaped as a flower with four petals, each cusped at the end, and a perforation in the center for wear around the neck. One of the petals is split along the middle in order to allow placement around the neck and over the shoulders. The turquoise stones are the most striking applications and also the brightest! They are followed by coral, also bearing a beautiful color. Various stones (or beads) form borders or circular medallions enclosing further stitched-on stone- and bead applications. Most of these are in star formations, others include circling bead motifs. There are three elements which take the shape of a gau, the fourth could not be applied due to the petal being split into two sections by the opening. The gau (amulet containers usually worn around the neck) are embellished with turquoise stones around the center. Disregarding the small dark-red stones, there are approximately 530 stones per petal, which totals to approximately 2300 to 2400 stones on this shoulder cape. This “shoulder cape” is naturally quite heavy and was intended to be worn only on special occasions.

DIAMETER 26,5 CM From the Dutch collection Raymond Burleson 海龍紋青花盤。中國,明代風格,約20世紀中期。直徑26.5厘米。 Burleson worked in the early 80´s in the editorial office of an art magazine in Den Haag, when his growing interest in art also flourished. Subsequently active in international art trade, he specialized in early European art beginning with 15th cent., painting of 17th-19th cent., as well as occasionally also in Asian art. He was active in Europe, as also in America and Asia. Over the years, he became increasingly interested in Chinese porcelain and started to create a collection from 1980 to 1990 with objects of the 19th and 20th centuries, also snuffbottles, little bottles for snuff tobacco. He acquired at a time when one could still affordably buy and choose from the greatest selection. His collection offers today the possibility of learning to appreciate the quality of best latest porcelain designed in the tradition of past periods (often carrying the corrresponding period terms such as Kangxi, Qianlong etc.), as their actual and often astounding quality was truly equitable. Burleson built up a collection over the years of several hundred of the most beautiful porcelain pieces, which now due to his age are gradually being sold. 來自阿姆斯特丹的 Raymond Burleson 先生舊藏 Raymond Burleson 先生曾在 20 世紀 80 年代初在海牙市當編輯,工作在一家藝術史方面的雜誌。在這裏對藝術產生了興趣,後來當了藝術買賣專家。其專業為15世紀歐洲藝術,17至19世紀歐洲繪畫以及亞洲美術。他曾也在歐洲,亞洲,美國等地區到處旅遊。 百忙之中Burleson 先生也越來越集中於收藏中國瓷器。20 世紀 80 和 90 年代曾建立主要藏 19 和 20 世紀的瓷器美術品的珍品收藏,另外還集中收藏各種各樣的鼻煙壺。在其時代很幸運得還是有很寬闊的選擇機會,並且價格常常極為佳。其收藏如今提供拿到晚期瓷器的最為精選的作品的機會。很多瓷器物品是按照過去某些時代的風格而製造,有些還存在著模仿當年號(如康熙,乾隆等)的標誌。這個收藏剛好證明了比較新的瓷器也得為其特有的質量而保護下來,正如收藏家根據他罕見的眼力收集了數幾百件最為精美的瓷器收藏。值得注意的是,這個收藏此次全部而出售,然而跟一般情況一件一件出售的方法有很大的不同。
