International Public Auction - April 1-4, 2017

Interasia's April 1-4 auction of China, Hong Kong and Asian stamps and postal history will take place at the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. The four-day, 3,200-lot sale includes another outstanding offering of China and Hong Kong stamps and postal history, with important Ching Dynasty and Republic, substantial postal history, Taiwan, Tibet, Mongolia, and a large offering of People's Republic and Liberated Areas. Hong Kong and Treaty Ports alone comprises 680 lots, while the Other Asian Countries features the Dr. Taizo Maeda international gold medal collection of North Korea.

The April 1 sessions begin with the Olsson Collection of Large Dragons of China (lots 1-41). This first of four auctions over which this magnificent collection will be sold starts off with the exquisite De La Rue handpainted essays, the earliest designs for the first proposed postage stamp issue of China. The issued stamps include a set of mint sheets of the 1878 thin paper issue, while this outstanding sale concludes with seven magnificent covers, the centerpiece being the unique British incoming envelope to Newchwang with the handstruck "To Pay" applied in Shanghai.

This is followed by China Ching Dynasty and Republic issues (lots 42-840) and includes the superlative set of complete sheets of the 1894 Dowager Empress 60th Birthday Mollendorf printing, one of the finest arrays of Dowager covers to appear at auction in recent years, and noteworthy 1897 New Currency surcharge and perforation varieties. The Red Revenues include complete panes and reconstructions comprised of large multiples, while the Later Issues feature the important set of 1898-1910 Chinese Imperial Post essays and die proofs of the Waterlow printer's archives and key "Republic of China" overprint rarities.

The April 2 sessions begin with the almost 500-lot People's Republic of China and Liberated Areas (lots 1001-1474) representing another outstanding offering of these popular subjects, for which Interasia has become known. 60 lots of Liberated Areas, including rare Soviet Post stamps in outstandingly fresh examples, are followed by the large offering of PRC issues. Multiple examples of the PRC popular sets and miniature sheets are highlighted by no less than 21 Mei Lanfang miniature sheets. The offering similarly includes three 1980 Year of the Monkey sheets, as well as a substantial group of unissued rarities unused, including the 1956 "Sun Rays", 1958 Students Congress errors, and two of the 1964 Peking Opera Masks.

The second April 2 session (lots 2001-2548) comprises Foreign Post Offices in China, as well as China Postal Stationery and Covers. The specialised collection of Japanese Post Offices in China, Russian Far East and the Allied Intervention in Siberia formed by Dr. Hiroshi Yoshikawa is the highlight of the Foreign Post Offices, while the Postal Stationery includes an exceptional collection of the 1907 third issue green vertical format card.

The April 3 session (lots 3001-3708) consists of Chinese Local Posts, Taiwan, Tibet, Mongolia, Chinese Provinces, Manchukuo, Japanese Occupation of China, as well as Other Asian Countries, including the final part of Dr. Taizo Maeda's Gold Medal collection of North Korea.

The April 4 session comprises the 680-lot Hong Kong and Treaty Ports stamps and postal history (lots 4001-4682), along with early Philippines mail franked with Hong Kong stamps. The Hong Kong stamps feature the "K. Ashleigh" collection of Queen Victoria overprints and surcharges, replete with outstanding varieties, Queen Victoria blocks and large multiples including the complete pane of the 1891 Jubilee, as well as the exhibition collections of King George VI Definitives (Part 1) and Queen Elizabeth First Definitives formed by Nick Halewood, a leading student of these issues.
