Ming dynasty bowl sails over estimate

We are often called in to help people downsize and advise them on what to sell and how to achieve the best price.

If we can broker a sale directly to a collector or a dealer then this can often be more financially beneficial, as compared to an auction, because of the substantially lower commission rates involved.

However, there are certain pieces that we would generally advise selling by auction. These can be the rare, the speculative, the unusual or the pieces that are in high demand, where it is difficult to gauge the final price when lots of bidders are competing against each other.

Chinese ceramics and works of art often fall into one of these categories. So when my client showed me this 17th century Ming dynasty cloisonné censer with associated stand, we advised them to sell it via a specialist firm of auctioneers. It was guided at £2000 – £3000 but on the day sold for £7150 with premium.

I always enjoy walking in London because you never know what architectural gems are just around the next corner. This is the Royal Arcade in Albermarle Street which was built in 1879 and is opposite Brown’s the oldest hotel in London.
