The Buccleuch Vases reach journey’s end

In Collecting, Designs by Roger Thomas

It’s not every day a guy gets to install world class masterwork treasures.
This is the first of four of the Bucchleuch Vases I bought in 2011 at auction at Christie’s in London, setting a world record value for ormolu-mounted Chinese porcelain. They are currently insured for $15 million.

It was a treat to find the perfect spot for these in the Wynn Palace Cotai, which opened August 22 after five years of design and construction.
