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. Now we find that we are still have 560 plus fine items to sell.These are not "cats and dogs leftovers". We have deliberately delayed listing many of our finest pieces to the end so that we could enjoy them a bit longer. So we are now taking more action - As of December 1, 2014, ALL items in our catalog are now on sale at a discount of 50 % from the Listed Price, plus shipping at cost.

In addition, we have now instituted a policy that 25 % of the items in our inventory carry the phrase - "Or Best Offer". These "Best Offer" items are scattered throughout the entire inventory - they are in all price ranges (from $100 to $1,500) - from many different countries - and across the full range of items from prints to ceramics to snuff bottles, etc. As each of these items are sold - we will then add another item to the "Best Offer" group. So look for the "One in Four" items where you can make us an offer below the listed price. (We do ask that you be realistic in making your offer, If an item has a List Price of $1,200 - which would be $600 after taking the 50 % discount - please do not offer $100 or a similar amount that we clearly could not accept.)

We invite you to take advantage of the 50% discount Now. We hope that you will continue to take a new look at the full catalog as we keep adding items - and that you will enjoy seeking out the One-in-Four items that are now in the "Best Offer" mode.

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.
