Provenance: Ex. collection of Arthur M Sackler, 1913-1987. Acquired by World Class Antiques from an important London-based antiquities dealer in 2013.
Sackler was one of the pre-eminent collectors of the 20th Century, as well as being a major philanthropist and patron of the arts. His world renowned collection was rich in Far Eastern, Byzantine, Greek, Egyptian and Near Eastern art and antiquities, small portions of which have been sold over the past years. Sackler established a plethora of institutions which bear his name, including the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Science, the Sackler School of Medicine, the Arthur M. Sackler Science Center and, of course, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum (now part of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Asian Art).
A rare opportunity to acquire an artefact from one of the key art collections of the 20th century.
