Chinese Works of Art

This sector comprises art and antiques from China including works from the Han, Tang, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties.

There is a market for pieces of all ages and rarity from ancient Neolithic jades right up to ceramics made in the Republic era. The increased interest and purchasing power from Mainland China since the late 1990s has led to a significant rise of prices.
