Why our pieces are different
The China Coast mainly buys from individuals whose families have lived and worked in Asia during the early part of the 20th century. In our distinctive and ecclectic collection you will find oxblood vases, Chinese robes, Japanese ivories, Thai bronze statues, Zen scroll paintings Indian carvings and many other works of art. We are always looking for interesting pieces, and sometimes we find them on the other side of the globe and sometimes in the homes of clients we have sold to 30 years ago.
We accept payment through Paypal, Paypal credit card and personal checks. In most cases, there is a shipping charge.
