Themed lots are becoming more and more popular, and Christie's is betting on sets to be auctioned off in Hong Kong to be particularly attractive to Chinese buyers. The auction house's “Fine and Rare Wines” sale, taking place March 21st, centers around lots with names like “Dragon”, “Phoenix”, and “Qilin” (a mythical hoofed creature).
