LONDON, U.K., February 12, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Thursday, Feb. 15, Apollo Art Auctions will host a professionally curated 192-lot online-only sale of fine Chinese and Islamic art. Of particular note is the selection of exquisite Chinese and Japanese porcelain and art ranging from Qing Empire productions to those of the 20th century.

Each vessel stands 380mm (15in) high, has dragon-form handles and is richly decorated with an array of peonies. The elegant duo has been assigned an opening bid of £3,000 ($3,815).

A monumental pair of Japanese Satsuma vases dating from the Meiji Period (1868-1912) features classical gilded motifs.
