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.
