Scroll on a roll in Roseberys selection

Provincial sales throughout the summer were enlivened by big-money Chinese material but a more concentrated look at the market was afforded by the dedicated sale at Roseberys (20% buyer’s premium) on June 27.

It was the best auction in the category so far at the West Norwood rooms with the 487 lots totalling just shy of £670,000.

Bill Forrest, specialist and auctioneer, was delighted but added a caveat. “These specialist auctions are a testament to the enduring strength of the Asian market,” he said. “But there is no doubt that buyers are increasingly seeking those objects with superb provenance and of fine quality.”

Two private collections of scroll paintings – “a highly specialist field due to the number of imitations on the market,” said Forrest – had the requisite provenances and provided the day’s highlights. Most were contested by two Chinese collector-dealers but an Italian bidder took two of the prizes. He went way beyond estimates to take two ink and watercolour scrolls.
