A Qianlong period (1736-1795) green jade brush pot will be among the highlights of Christie's Asia Week sales in London on November 5-8 with an estimate of £250,000-350,000 ($404,764-566,588).
The pot, painstakingly carved into a rocky landscape populated with pine trees, crane and deer, will lead the initial auction, Arts of the Carver, on November 5.
A similar white jade brush pot will also feature with an estimate of £100,000-150,000 ($161,890-242,840). The carvings include details of scholars, pavilions and mountains.
The Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art sale is also due to take place on November 5, and will feature a jade "twin fish" marriage bowl, the interior of which is carved with intricate calligraphy and peach branches.
It carries an estimate of £200,000-300,000 ($323,924-485,886) and dates to the Qianlong period.
Marriage bowls were a popular gift in the imperial court, and reflected the status of their owners.
There has been strong demand for Chinese bronzes in recent years and a rare Ming dynasty (1600-1700s) gilt bronze effigy of Marici, the goddess of dawn, will likely be a notable highlight of the sale.
The figure is displayed seated on a double lotus pedestal with petals carved into flaming pearls.
A rare yellow and green vase dating to 1723-1735 will also feature with an estimate of £150,000-200,000 ($242,583-323,924) and a large wucai lobed dragon jar dating from 1522-1566 could make between £120,000-150,000 ($194,136-242,583).
Two further auctions of Chinese Interiors and Chinese Ceramics, Works of Art and Textiles will take place on November 6 and 8 respectively.
The sale follows on the immense success of the Asia Week sales in New York which achieved a total of over $175m.
