We are dedicated to objects of beauty - by a naive crafstman or a skilled artist - intended for the indigenous cultures in which they were made. We call this ethnographic art - works that were considered important at the time they were created as items of ritual, purpose and utility.



Some highlights from Japan are rare Edo Period festival dolls, functional tansu, inspirational Buddhist art, folk ceramics, and decorative screens. Our Chinese selection includes furniture, scholarís items, ceramics, textiles and snuff bottles. From Thailand and Burma we offer bronze frog drums, dry lacquer, and bronze and silver Buddhist imagery. We invite you to browse through a diverse selection of items from other Asian countries as well. In addition, we have travelled the world and have an aesthetic viewpoint for lifestyle and design. You will find items of design and decoration that are compatible with the Asian Antiques Collectorís perspective, including mid-century furniture, contemporary art and lighting.
