On Tuesday this week our second specialist Asian Art sale brought in sales over £250,000 – more than double the total of the February Asian Art sale and another record for a Chiswick Auction specialist sale. There were strong results across all categories with many pieces selling well above their estimates. The results prove Chiswick Auction's increasingly important position in the London market for Chinese and Asian works of Art.
