Dawsons are renowned for selling the finest traditional and contemporary art, porcelain, jade, furniture and sacred items that represent the rich and vibrant cultures of China, Japan, South East Asian countries and Tibetan lands.
Our strong sale results are driven by increasingly affluent populations in countries across this region engaging in competitive bidding to repatriate and own objects of cultural heritage. This is summarised in the trends seen in the market for Chinese Decorative Arts reaching six-figure sums in sales around the world. This trend continues in other nations throughout this vast continent, with increasingly buoyant results for Indian, Colonial and South East Asian antiquities.
Please get in touch with one of our team of trusted fine art specialists who will inspect your items, tell you a little about them and provide an auction valuation. We offer remote valuations by email and video call, whilst you can also book a private appointment at our London or Berkshire office. Alternatively if you'd prefer, we would be delighted to book an appointment to value your asian art in the comfort of your own home.
Once you have received your auction estimates and agreed reserves, the next step is to enter your items ready for sale. At the same time, one of our specialists will offer available sale dates and guide you through your Seller’s Agreement which includes details about your items reserves, our charges and terms and conditions. They will also be pleased to answer any other questions you may have. You can bring your asian art along to us, or we are happy to arrange collection. Leave the rest to us. Then sit back and relax, our team will take care everything else, ensuring that your items are carefully catalogued, photographed and marketed to a huge audience of prospective buyers across the globe.
