News-Antique.com - Mar 09,2012 - Proxibid, (www.proxibid.com), the world’s largest real auction marketplace, has been selected by Auction Michigan, L.L.C. as the exclusive online bidding provider for a rare collection of 18th century marine archeology pottery from the Qing Dynasty, the last dynasty of China. The timed auction, which begins on March 9 and continues through March 15, can be viewed in full at www.proxibid.com/auctionmichigan.
Jindezheng, China, the region where these fascinating pieces originate, is known as the “Porcelain Capitol,” as it has been producing quality pottery for over 1,700 years. These never before seen lithic (stoneware) and porcelain artifacts in pristine condition were excavated from the South China Sea. All pieces have been examined and authenticated by four museum curators and are believed to date back from 1750 to 1775 AD.
Hundreds of years in the South China Sea have left the artifacts encrusted with coral, barnacles and other sea growths, making them even rarer. Similar artifacts can be found in museums around the world, but through Auction Michigan L.L.C and Proxibid, these museum quality pieces will be available to online bidders from around the globe.
Additional highlights to cross the block include:
• AD1500: Qing Dynasty Stoneware Decorative Teapot
• AD2100: Qing Dynasty Porcelain (Red and White) Water Jug
• AD2300: Qing Dynasty Extra-Large Gourd Porcelain (Blue & White) Vase with Five False Spouts
• AD2700: Qing Dynasty Extra Tall Porcelain (Blue & White) Gourd Vase with Porcelain Lid
• AD2900: Qing Dynasty Extra-Tall Porcelain (Blue & White) Vase with Lid
