In recent years, Hong Kong has grown to become Asia's most important auction centre. Since our first sale in Hong Kong in 1986, Christie's has been instrumental in further developing the market, becoming the leading auction house in the region today. Christie's currently holds sales in ten major categories, ranging from historic Chinese art and jadeite jewellery to cutting edge contemporary Asian art, western jewellery and watches. Christie's sales in Hong Kong typically take place in May and November.

In 2006, Christie's sold a highly important Imperial famille rose ‘swallows’ bowl of the Qianlong period (1736-1795) for HK$151.3 million (US$19.7 million), the highest price ever achieved for a work of art at auction in Asia and a new world auction record for Qing porcelain.
