Ancient Asian Art

It all began many years ago with our first trip to China - that's when we fell in love with Asian art. We were wide eyed and wowed by the depth of this ancient culture and its expression through a wide variety of art forms and domestic crafts. As that love turned into passion, we became enthusiastic collectors. As our collection began to overwhelm our home, we began selling some pieces to make room for others. Through this process, we found many other enthusiastic collectors, and eventually Ancient East was born.

We began by traveling extensively to China and Japan seeking the finest in Asian art & antiques, hand selecting each piece with a collector's eye. Today however there is a high demand coming from China to buy back their own antiques. With this reversal of trade, most items in our catalog are now sourced from private collectors, individual consignments and estates here and abroad. It helps satisfy our collecting passion to assemble an outstanding catalog selection for those who also share a love of Asian art. We have placed many pieces into fine collections and work with designers and other dealers. Fine Asian Works of Art
We are proud to offer you an exceptional variety - from the more humble domestic arts & crafts to the most exquisite, investment quality Asian art and antiquities. Each piece is thoughtfully selected for its material, craftsmanship, design and condition, with our years of study and experience directly benefiting our clients.

We donít have a shop but exhibit at fine antique shows in addition to our catalog on-line. Because of our low overhead, we think you will find our prices more than fair. We love sharing our passion - the appreciation and pursuit of an ancient culture's artistic expression and the excitement of its acquisition. As new items are acquired they are added to our collection, so please visit our website often. From our heart to yours - we are privileged to share our love of the Ancient East with you. Happy Hunting!
