Sworders, Duke’s and Roseberys London join 42 dealers and 10 other salerooms as exhibitors.

To be part of Asian Art in London is a badge of merit that says Sworders is a serious player in Asian art,” said Guy Schooling, Sworders chairman. “It’s a club we felt we should be in.”

Both Rosebery’s and Duke’s hold regular designated Asian art auctions, with the Dorchester firm conducting the Melplash Court sale totalling nearly £3m in 2010. Former Lyon & Turnbull Asian art expert Lee Young was hired last year as its managing director.

Woolley & Wallis of Salisbury remains a longstanding AAL exhibitor alongside other salerooms from the UK and overseas, with Lyon & Turnbull a recent regular.

Antiques Trade Gazette is once again a sponsor of the 10-day event of sales, exhibitions and talks.
