The October 1-6 autumn sale saw more than 3,000 lots sold for more than HK$3.2 billion (US$411 million), the city's second highest sale ever, the auction house said in a statement.
Highlights included a 15th-century Ming vase that fetched a record HK$168.7 million, and a work by Chinese abstract artist Zao Wouki that was snapped up for HK$69 million.
Records were also set for the highest price per carat for a fancy vivid blue diamond and a fancy vivid orange diamond, as wealthy Asian and Western collectors competed in sales seen as a gauge of high-end consumer sentiment in uncertain economic times.
Sotheby's Asia chief executive Kevin Ching said 2011 sales in Hong Kong had smashed last year's results.
