Exhibits a generous selection of classic Chinese antique furniture made of soft wood such as Northern Elm, Southern Elm, Locust Wood, Walnut Wood, and Oak Wood, as well as accessories and objets d'art. The collection includes one of a kind Ming Dynasty (c.1368-1644) and Qing Dynasty (c.1644-1911) original Chinese antique furniture such as altar tables, side tables, cabinets,benches, chairs, stools, chests, boxes & trunks, daybeds & tea tables, architectural elements, carved stones, potteries, Buddha statues, and textile pieces. Wei Fen Zhou, owner and collector, hand-selected each piece through her extensive traveling a few times each year in China. She finds a lot of rare pieces that are not often seen in the US. Wei has very discriminating eye and good knowledge on Chinese classic furniture. She was born and educated in Shanghai, China with strong interest in Chinese art and history. The gallery has worked with dealers, collectors, and designers on finding pieces that enhance their personal collection and home decorating, from traditional to modern.

Wei Fen was born in Shanghai and lived there the first twenty three years of her life. It is in China that she grew a passion for chinese antique furniture. Today she is a collector and an enthusiast of Chinese antiquity and arts. As a collector she is always striving to become better at selecting pieces for her collection. Spending the last six years with antique dealers in China and studying museum pieces all around the world have helped her develop a good understanding for fine Chinese antique furniture.

As you look through Shangri-La Antiques Gallery collection on this website we hope that you will be inspired by these one of a kind pieces. Some of the rare examples include The Liao Dynasty Tigers, the Qing Dynasty Daybed in Black Lacquer, The Ming dynasty Cabinet in Red Lacquer, The Late Yuan early Ming Dynasty Meditation Stool with Cabriole Legs, The Ming Dynasty Yoke-back Arm Chair,The Qing Dynasty Side Table in Black Lacquer, The Ming Dynasty Lotus Wood Altar Table... How was Wei able to find them and to indentify its origin and authenticity? The answer lies in many years of her efforts of learning to truly understand Chinese classic soft wood furniture and developing special relationships in China to find pieces that are rarely available on the market. She travels to China twice a year for several months searching for what she believes to be unusual antiques. When selecting antiques Wei likes for the piece to be perserved in its original form and state so she makes sure there has been only minimal changes done to each piece. Wei is mostly drawn to the simplicity and elegant lines of the Ming and Qing Dynasty.

We also have a wonderful shipping service that caters to all parts of the United States.
