Sworders have been holding designated biannual sales of Asian Art since 2012. However, this November will be the first time they have been invited to participate in the prestigious Asian Art in London festival.
A number of fine objects have already been consigned for Sworders’ next Asian Art auction on November 6. Of particularly fine quality is a diminutive 16th century Sino-Tibetan bronze bodhisattva that is engraved with lines of Sanskrit and panels of flora and fauna and inlaid with turquoise beads. The rare item carries an estimate of £7,000-10,000.
Sworders have been holding designated biannual sales of Asian Art since 2012. However, this November will be the first time they have been invited to participate in the prestigious Asian Art in London festival. For 21 years this globally-recognised annual event has promoted the wide range of specialist auctions, dealer exhibitions, symposia and lectures traditionally held in London and across the south east of England in early November. Together they spotlight the UK as a centre of expertise for the finest Asian art from antique to contemporary.

Sworders is once again proud to be sponsoring an evening of musical entertainment in a beautiful garden setting in Much Hadham.
Highlighted amongst the lots in our July Design sale are drawings by George Daniels (1854-1940) - perhaps the most accomplished British stained glass designer working in the late Gothic and early Renaissance idiom from the 1890s until the Second World War - including designs for an impressive five-light window in the north aisle of Manchester Cathedral and extant stained glass windows in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk churches.
Sworders are delighted to be hosting a timed auction of objects, events, and experiences on behalf of Beds & Herts Historic Churches Trust to aid the charity's fundraising for the restoration and repair of churches and chapels in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and parts of Barnet.
