Asian Art & Antiques - General

While Asia has a somewhat unified history, religion, philosophy, and culture, each country indisputably has its own art market along with a multitude of defining characteristics and individual customs and traditions that directly influence those markets.

The art and antiques market in China has been one of the strongest growing worldwide since it emerged into the global art scene in the mid-2000s. The popularity of Chinese art and artifacts, including ceramics, bronze pieces, contemporary paintings, and snuff bottles, has driven the prices up dramatically. Due to the erosion of the yen, Japanese artworks and antiques are also highly valued today, especially armor, swords, and ceramics.

A SILVERED COPPER BOWL   Possibly Mamluk Syria or Iran, late 15th - early 16th century    Of rounded form with flat rim, on a circular foot, the exterior finely engraved with panels of intricate interlaced knotted strapwork, arabesque designs and stylised foliage, the interior plain with small floral decoration in the centre repeated also on the base, the silvering possibly later, 4.5cm high and 11.5cm diam.   Provenance: UK private collection since early 1980s.   The decoration on the surface of this bowl is reminiscent of early 16th-century 'Veneto-Saracenic' metal vessels, usually made of copper, mostly brass, and ornate with silver, or less frequently gold, inlay. That said, the shape, the manufacturing techniques and the design of the decorative composition show an interesting similarity to a group of vessels produced within the Aqqoyunlu empire. For an interesting discussion on 'Veneto-Saracenic' metal vessels, their different types and the influences and similarities with late15th-century Ottoman and Aqqoyunlu vessels, please read Sylvia Auld,
