Carved jadeite pieces among expected top Asian arts earners

Nearly 600 lots of top-quality Chinese carvings and works of art will be sold at auction Nov. 19, 2011 by Elite Decorative Arts. “We’re starting the auction in the evening rather than the early afternoon to accommodate the Chinese audience, which we expect will be substantial,” said Scott Cieckiewicz of Elite Decorative Arts.
