Christie's Asian Art Week 2018

As you know, I love popping in Christie's in Rockefeller Center pretty often. You can enter for free and you can view some amazing pieces of artwork. Their Asian Art Week was pretty fantastic and I really wanted to share some of the items with you. It amazes me how old these treasures are and that we still have them in the year 2019 to enjoy!  
The carving on this was just amazing!  

The price realized for this piece was $10,000 US Dollars  

How beautiful are these colors and design!  
This piece was just wonderful to view in person  

The price realized for this piece was $112,500 US Dollars 
Just took my breath away! So beautiful  

This piece is dated from 1400! Isn't that just totally amazing! Just think of all the places it must have been in over 600 years!  

This delightful piece was price realized at $225,000  

I really love these pieces and in person, they are even more fabulous, if you would believe. Chrisitie's is an auction house but really just like a museum with all the history you are allowed to view when visiting.  

Price realized is $60,000 US Dollars 
This piece was really something I looked at for quite a while  

This drawing made me smile  

 I could see this in my home with no problem!  

Ah, this happened to be on view as well - just a diamond necklace for your enjoyment!  

When you are done learning some history at Christie's, you can pop over to La Maison du Chocolat for some cocoa and chocolate. Life is really good, isn't it ?
