NEW YORK CITY — Lark Mason, founder and president of Lark Mason Associates, has announced that more than 500 lots of Asian art will be up for bidding on iGavelauctions.com in a series of online sales that go live on April 3 and close on April

17. The works of art span 3,000 years of material, from the Western Zhou dynasty to the late Qing dynasty. A selection of works are currently on view at the iGavel Auctions salesroom at 227 East 120th Street until March 24.

The sale series includes an array of Chinese jade carvings, ancient bronzes and works from the Qing dynasty and earlier. Of particular note are several collections formed during the post-World War II period, including a large Chinese bronze censer embellished with gold and with silver-wire inlaid Shou symbols, Buddhist lions and auspicious symbols.
