Several of the Chinese lots are additional material procured for MacMurray College in the 1920s and 1930s by a Yale Road Scholar instructing at Chicago's Asian Art Institute. The collection’s assembly was commissioned by the school for its International Studies Program under the direction of esteemed professor, Dr. Wallace N. Stearns. Selkirk is thrilled to again offer these significant artifacts from the institution's archives plus choice additions from private national collections.
