  • DOUBLE GOURD VASE MAKES 740,000 AT SHEPPARDS

    A Chinese Blue and White Shep Vase.

    A Chinese blue and white vase sold for 740,000 at Sheppards in Durrow on July 17.  It had been estimated at just 800-1,200.  It went to a Paris based buyer.

    The Qing double gourd vase had come from a Dublin based vendor. It was the top lot at Sheppards sale of Chinese ceramics and works of art. The sale had been on view at Kilkenny Castle.

    In 2010 a 12 inch high Ming style pear shaped Chinese vase with an asking price of just 150 made 110,000 at a sale in Sheppards.  It turned out to be an authentic vase from the Imperial House in the  Forbidden City.
