Snapshots from the Sale: Fine Asian Works of Art – rhinoceros horn libation cup

Asian Art Specialist Harry Huang:
“I am very excited to present another rhinoceros horn libation cup to the marketplace.  We saw great success with a libation cup we sold in June that brought over $70,000.  This horn cup is another wonderful example, with a variation on the decorative scheme.  The chilong dragons, lychee and floral motifs are superbly carved.” Lot 9071, $20,000-30,000.
