Chinese Antiques

A Last Week at the Auction SPECIAL EDITION


Over the past 3 seasons of Last Week at the Auction I’ve been telling you, Chinese Antiques are taking the auction world by storm. I could literally do an episode every week based on that genre alone, but typically I try to give you a more well-rounded general glimpse in to what’s going on out there. But for now and today’s post, I just want to share a quick visual primer as to what I have been talking about and what to look for. Seeing is believing.


Here’s what I’d like to call CHINESE ANTIQUES, Last Week at the Auction Special Edition.
