NEW YORK, NY.- Doyle's successful Asian Works of Art auction on September 9 presented the arts of China, Japan and Southeast Asia dating from the Neolithic Period through the 20th century. Showcased were porcelains, jades, snuff bottles, bronzes, pottery, scholar’s objects and paintings from prominent collections and estates.

Highlighting the sale was a rare Ming-style Doucai vase with the Yongzheng six-character mark within double circles and of the Period (1723-1735) that achieved a stunning $387,000. Measuring 9 1/8 inches in height, the vase took several minutes to sell as determined bidders in the saleroom and on the telephones pushed the price higher and higher, generating a round of applause when it sold. The vase was decorated in Chenghua-style with an all-over design of Indian lotus bearing full formal blooms amid delicate curling stems and leaves.
