Dingyao basin to fetch over RM25mil
On April 8, Sotheby’s Hong Kong Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art Spring Sale will offer a selection of porcelain, gilt bronze and scholarly objects as well as elegant furniture from celebrated private collections. The sale is led by The Clark Ding Basin, a Dingyao ware from the Northern Song dynasty. It is from the collection of legendary antique dealer, Sakamoto Goro. Not seen by others for over 40 years, this magnificently carved Dingyao basin is expected to fetch over HK$60mil (RM25mil).
