Fine auction of Japanese art at Christie’s

I am happy to report  a very fine auction of Japanese art at Christie’s on 14 September 2011 in New York. While there are splendid and most expensive lots like this color woodblock print by Sharaku with an estimate of $ 600,000 to $ 800,000, there are a number of pieces to consider  with an estimate under $ 5,000.This lacquer four-case  inro has an estimate of $ 2,000 to $ 3,000  and dates from the Edo period. Sales for Japanese pieces  have been not as strong as those for Chinese art but this is changing.
