Japanese Antiques and Fine Art
Sales Policy

Our aim is to describe the merchandise presented - clearly and in detail including age, authenticity and a honest evaluation of the condition of each article we show. We always appreciate hearing from anyone who can offer advice about any of our descriptions.

All items are sold as represented and are guaranteed to be as described. If there is any reason to dispute the age or authenticity of the item after it has been received, we will provide a ten day money-back guaranty (less shipping charges). After ten days, all sales are considered final.

Notification is required before an item can be returned. When an item is returned with our advance approval, the buyer is responsible for packing, shipping costs and full insurance. Refunds will be made to the buyer upon our receipt of the item in the same condition as at the time of purchase.


We ship via FedEx, but other shippers can be arranged if the buyer prefers a different company. Shipping charges are not included in the prices listed in the catalog. Shipping charges will be limited to their actual cost and will include professional packing and insurance.

Method of Payment:

For domestic transactions we accept checks, money orders, direct wire transfers, and Visa, MasterCard, American Express. For all international transactions a bank money wire transfer is required. We also can offer you a Layaway Plan to make your purchase easy.

Valuation Inquiries:

We regret that we are not in a position to provide free market advice, valuations or appraisals over the telephone, the internet or from photographs.
