Asian Art auctions are a dynamic and rapidly growing part of the auction business
The Asian Art department focuses on Chinese and Japanese ceramics and works of art, representing the rich cultural history of the regions, spanning some 5,000 years.
Objects and artworks with strong provenance generate competitive international bidding and particularly strong results at auction, whether it be Imperial Chinese porcelains, fine jade carvings or traditional Chinese and Japanese paintings and works of art. Our specialised Asian Art auctions attract global interest and we benefit from an in-house Mandarin speaker allowing seamless communications between all parties.
