IMPORTANT LARGE CHINESE QING DYNASTY CARVED BAMBOO IMPERIAL GUANYIN FIGURE
About Our Auctions.
Hi, many thanks for having a look at my items. Up for auction is a Great and Large Chinese Art Estate Collection. As my auctions have run for over 12 years auctioning online, all the items offered will be sold with Absolutely NO RESERVES! I hope you find the collection as interesting as I do. It has been a Real Pleasure handling so many Beautiful and Amazing Quality examples.
Up for auction is a Very Rare and Important Chinese Carved Bamboo Imperial Guanyin Figure. The Figure is a Truly Amazing and Very Interesting piece. As noted on the base label the figure is from the Collection of the Grand-Niece of the Last Emperor of Chinese Puyi, and the Granddaughter of the Crown Prince Pujun. I was told that the piece was purchased from her collection, along with some of the other pieces also listed. I have had the pleasure of selling some very fine and rare 18th and 19thc Chinese Bamboo figural examples over the years. However most I have seen are very small in size measuring an average of a few inches tall. This figure is only what could be called a Monumental example of Bamboo Carving measuring an Impressive 29 inches tall, by 7 inches wide. The Figure is very finely carved, with intricate life like details to the face. The piece has a beautiful, rich, and consistent patina throughout. The figure is also in very fine untouched original condition with no damage, missing pieces, or repairs. It is obviously hard to put an exact date to such a piece, by the qualities I would say 18th to 19th century, but I will ultimately let you decide its age for yourself. I know at the higher end sales some Bamboo examples can go for some very Substantial amounts, but most are very small pieces. It would be worth some time to see what this figure would be worth, I believe to the right collector it could be a must have piece. With this kind of Imperial related provenance I believe there is a very good change this piece could have came from one of the imperial palaces. A Brilliant and Breathtaking example.
BEST OF LUCK WITH THE AUCTIONS!
