Ripley Auctions is proud to close out the year with an amazing sale featuring The Compton Collection of Asian Art from Taylor University with proceeds to fund endowed scholarships for students. Neil Compton attended Taylor University in the 1920s, and then joined the US Navy during The Great Depression. In 1941 as a Lieutenant Officer on the USS Tracy, he was a survivor in the attack on Pearl Harbor. After WWII he was assigned in San Francisco as a marine engineer, and at this time he married Renee Lyon, who he had met in Brussels, Belgium during the war. Compton then served in the Korean War after which the couple settled in Japan. They began studying Asian art with a Japanese friend and antique store owner. After several years they had amassed a collection of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean art and artifacts that would fill their California home. The collection was donated to Taylor University in 1975. The collection includes a pair of portrait bronze Samurai statues by Akasofu Gyoko, other Meiji and Edo bronzes, jade carvings including a Ruyi scepter, censers, archaic bronzes, Yaozhou Song Dynasty and Longquan celadon, along with Ming, Tang and Han Dynasty art, pottery and porcelain, Korean inlaid celadon wine ewer, Imari, Kakiemon, Kutani, Satsuma, Swatow ware, Japanese woodblock prints, lacquer, cinnabar, cloisonne, scroll paintings, and more.
