Provenance

From the Collection of Carl-Erik Gadelius (1866-1928). Thence by descent. Carl-Erik Gadelius was a Swedish Businessman who in 1886, travelled to Sumatra with his well-known brother Knut Gadelius (founder of Gadelius & Co) and set up a plantation and gem trading business. They had offices in Singapore, Yokohama and Osaka. Carl-Erik Gadelius had a great passion of Asian antiques and participated in several excavations and started an import business with antiques as well. A large part of his collection was sold at Sigge Björks Konsthandel in 1926. But part of the collection remained within the family.
