Just Arrived . . .
A fine collection of Chinese antiques including some stunning Chinese jade carvings.
25 years ago, we purchased the largest and best jade collection that we have had the privilege to acquire in our history. This original collector had put together an impressive group of over 800 fine pieces of Chinese antiquities that he purchased over a span of 20 years, traveling back and forth from Hawaii to China and to Taiwan during the 1950s-1970s.
This group that has just arrived in the gallery comes to us from a Honolulu woman who purchased many fine pieces from this same collection in the 1980s. She had a refined taste and selected many attractive examples of Chinese jade carving and snuff bottles. We hope to acquire further pieces from this local collection but this is the first wave of acquisitions that we are pleased to present.
