Chiswick Auctions

Chinese Ceramics & Works of Art 中国瓷器与艺术品

Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art compose the main section of the quarterly dedicated Asian Art sales which see international collectors and connoisseurs compete for a variety of categories including ceramics, jades, bronzes, cloisonné enamel, wood and more.

Many of the department’s strongest prices have been for porcelain, which makes up the bedrock of its sales. However, as the market shifts high prices have also been realised for furniture, cloisonné enamel and bronzes.

The Department is also highly experienced in handling private collections. Attention to detail, lavishly illustrated and academically rigorous catalogues, combined with targeted marketing campaigns and excellent client service, has ensured that the London sales present the ideal means by which to sell your collection. Recent important private collections handled by the department include those of John Marriott and Bernard Buckman as well as several unnamed collections which have each sold for six figure sums.

In 2018 we have added a string of dedicated themed sales to our calendar including Later Chinese Bronzes (May 2018) and Kangxi era Porcelain and Works of Art (November 2018).
