Asian Art Sells For Big Green On St. Patrick's Day | Artifacts |

The Asian market is on the up-rise and so is Freeman's of Philadelphia. On the heels of Freeman's third consecutive Asian art auction achieve a multi-million dollar lot, a Chinese Ming Dynasty gilt bronze and cloisonné covered jar sold March 17, 2012, for $1.54 million. The massive jar (21 ½ inches in height and 16 ½ in diameter) was subject to heated competition among more than a dozen bidders from the room, phones and internet before selling to a Chinese bidder in the room.
