Ming Cup Discovered at Staffordshire University Fetches £3m

The Stem Cup was the highlight of a specially curated sale of Chinese Works of Art produced in-conjunction with the company’s sister saleroom Freeman’s of Philadelphia, America’s oldest auction house. The Stem Cup’s journey to Hong Kong began at Asian Art in London in November 2015 – with its first public exhibition for 20 years – followed by a trip to both Philadelphia and New York in the USA in March before travelling to Hong Kong in perfect time for the prestigious Asian Week Hong Kong festival this May. A tour that provided an international platform for this
important piece that spread the story of the Thornhill Collection around the world.
