Sotheby's has an extraordinary group of works by this famous painter. This includes two fabulous original sketches of mythological hero Perseus which we consigned for a client.

Rare Chinese vase raises the bar!

Qianlong Chinese Imperial Dragon Vase

Discovered amongst a collection of spirit bottles, and stuffed with dried flowers, this extraordinary Imperial vase was hammered down at the Sotheby's Important Chinese sale, on behalf of a Covington client, for a cloud touching £1.1 million pounds.

With it's luminous cobalt blue decoration of a five clawed dragon chasing a flaming pearl and its clean and elegant body shape ensured enormous interest on the day. It was a lucky survival found hiding by our valuer on a routine free antiques valuation home visit. Do you perhaps have the pair?
