Auction Information
My name is Pietro Sella and I have been a dealer in Oriental Art since 1987.

In that year I was to China for the first time. There, I discovered an extraordinary country with one of the richest cultures and exceptionally beautiful art.

China is a wonderful country with over than 5000 years of history. I have traveled to the East for different trips, visiting countries like Indochina, Burma, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam; but China has always been my main point of interest.

Both Oriental and Chinese art in particular had an incredible development: think about all the objects now considered common like China patterns, furniture and paintings.

Collectors around the world bought up these marvelous pieces, with English and French being the first. Italians are just as good and that's why we have extraordinary collections. Giuseppe Tucci, one of the greatest sinologists of this past century, is Italian. His incredible collection is stored in Rome in the Museum of Oriental Art.

The Chinese, after the revolution and communism, have become avid collectors, buying important pieces in the international and internal markets.

This Chinese chest is a particularly important piece. It is the beginning of the Qing Dynasty, around the end of 1600. In China, only an important family of the highest imperial officials or rich traders could afford a chest like this. It is a wood chest lined with rattan and lacquered. The finish on the rattan, when you touch it, give you an extraordinary feeling.

This is what I meant when I was talking about life of the objects. It is an interest coming from art, from the intrinsic characteristics of this object.

Actually, the most beautiful oriental pieces are extremely simple; their harmony makes them look contemporary and yet, they often go back hundreds of years.
