All-Asian collection for sale in Dallas

Demand for Asian art, furniture and pottery has prompted Dallas Auction Gallery's special sale

Following the news that 2009's third highest grossing artist - after Picasso and Warhol - was China's Qi Baishi, Dallas Auction Gallery is hosting its first all-Asian auction on March 10.

The firm's move into Asian art follows a market increase at its auctions for art, furniture and pottery from the region.

 This Chinese Luohan, carved in rhino horn, is estimated at $20k-40k

Many pieces sold for well over their estimated value, prompting Dallas to arrange its dedicated sale.

Around 317 lots consigned from a varied and extensive local collection will go under the hammer, alongside other art sourced from around the world.

An outstanding collection of antique gilt bronze Buddhas, carved Chinese ivory artefacts and a pair of Chinese Qing cloisonn tripod censers on stands will be among the highlights.

One of the coveted lots isa 4 inches-high Chinese Luohan, carved in rhino horn and dated to the 19th or early-20th century.

It was previously in an important New York collection, and carries an estimate of $20,000-40,000.
