Lyon & Turnbull and Freeman’s Inaugural Auction in Hong Kong: Chinese Works of Art

Lyon & Turnbull and Freeman’s will travel to Hong Kong to hold their inaugural Chinese Works of Art auction. Leading this sale will be the Thornhill Stem Cup —a remarkable blue and white Ming period piece previously in the personal collection of English collector, Ernest Thornhill, which was bequeathed to the University of Staffordshire in 1944. The Thornhill Stem Cup is an excellent example of its type, which is virtually unseen outside museum collections. Today, the National Palace Museum, acknowledged to hold the finest collection in the world, has a collection of over 2,000 various Xuande pieces.
