One of the more notable collections is that of the late romance novelist Lady Mary Stewart. The items from her private collection include a Celadon jade group dating back to the Qianlong period with an estimate of $32,000 - $63,000.

 

Another sale highlight is a rare Celadon glazed dragon charger, estimated at $32,000 - $47,000. A man who was a prisoner-of-war in Japan during WWII, who remained in the country after his release and amassed an extensive collection, originally acquired the charger. This piece has since been passed down within the family.

 

 

A pair of dragon bowls from the collection of Leonard Gow is also likely to garner a lot of attention, estimated at $6,300 - $9,500, as is the pair of Doucai medallion bowls from another private collection. The bowls are intricately decorated with flowers from the four seasons and have an estimate of $32,000 - $47,000.
