In 1992, Ichiban Antiques was born and we were both buying and selling ever since. Since then we have greatly expanded our range of Oriental and Japanese antiques to many centuries and most Asian countries.

We have a particularly fine selection of Japanese lacquer items - Hirado Porcelain - Kutani Ware - Satsuma -Arita - rare and fine Gandharan Schist and Stucco Buddhist figures - Scholars Desk Articles - Japanese Studio Ceramics - Inro and Netsuke - and Chinese blanc-de-chine.

Many thanks for your patronage all these years.

All purchases are fully guaranteed for seven days from the date you receive an item to be as described. After that, all sales are considered final. If an item is returned with our advance approval, the buyer is responsible for packing, shipping cost and full insurance. Shipping costs are in addition to the prices listed. We will only ship via US Mail, Fully Insured.

International shipments are at buyer's risk and cost. International credit cards are accepted on a case by case basis dependent upon our ability to verify cardholder information and secure bank authorization. Please note that we are not willing to falsify values on U.S. Customs forms or to mark the form "gift." Also please note that on international shipments, we can provide proof of shipment and insurance but we cannot accept responsibility for the package after it leaves the U.S. All U.S. Customs Forms are marked merchandise and valued only with the actual selling price of the piece. All items listed are subject to prior sale.If you do not see anything that interests you in this first grouping, please call or e-mail us about the type of item you are looking for.

PRIVACY POLICY - We are committed to protecting your privacy. We do not share your information with any other person or business. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service. We will not e-mail you in the future unless you have given us your consent.

Starting in 2008 we began to start phasing out our business as we approached the time to retire. Since that time we have sold over 3500 items We had every confidence that we would be able to complete our closing down within two years. However we find that we are still left with 500 plus items to sell. So we are now taking more action - All items in our catalog priced at $250 or lower are now on sale at a discount of 50 % from the Listed Price. And all items priced above $250 are now on sale at a 45% discount. (The only exceptions to these discounts are the very few items listed as "Please Inquire"). At these prices we do ask that buyers pay the shipping and insurance.

We regret that we are not in a position to provide item identification, market advice, values, or appraisals over the telephone, the Internet or from photographs - we make no exceptions. With the advent of the appraisal programs on television, the volume of requests for such information has become extremely heavy and we are just not equipped to handle them - nor are we prepared to deal with the liability issues that can arise from such issues. We suggest that you do an Internet search for appraisers as there are many listed out there who are prepared to offer appraisals for a fee. Your understanding of these policies is appreciated. Since we are in the process of phasing out our business we are not purchasing any additional items for our inventory.
