Wynn Macau pays record price for vases
Wynn Macau has purchased four Chinese porcelain vases for a staggering GBP7.99 million (US$12.8 million) – far exceeding the current world auction record for such items. The items, which are Chinese porcelain baluster vases from the Jiaqing period (1796-1821), will be displayed in the company’s Cotai resort when it opens in 2015.
“We are delighted to be able to return these extraordinary examples of Chinese culture to the People’s Republic of China, and place them on display in the city of Macau, which we are so fortunate to be a part of,” said Steve Wynn, Chairman & CEO of Wynn Resorts.
Other examples of historic Chinese art, including examples of ceramics, cloisonne and textile Arts can be seen in the collections currently within Wynn Macau and Encore at Wynn Macau.
