Decorative Art at W.G. Herr
Preview Saturday’s Auktion 70 (Decorative Art) at Auktionshaus W.G. Herr, featuring this exquisite Su Sancai Yaxun Incense Burning Duck, c.1475.
"The duck is composed of two parts; the main body describes an elliptical form. The upper part is removable, the lower part shows at it’s inner lip six small ventilation holes, so that the air can flow in the body, through the throat and out of the open mouth of the duck. The tongue is responsible for the natural appearance of the air stream."
