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.

Those are all nuts, right…wow, but I do want to warn you, there are a lot of reproductions out there. You have to develop an eye for the real deal. You'll win some and you'll lose some. That's the price of the education in this business. Keep in mind, some of these values are for some of the finest examples. But….keep watching those sales and if you are not sure, but you see a deal, buy it. Sometimes you just have to trust your gut.


The fact is this....Chinese is hot, and whether you make $50 or $500k there is a lot of potential for nice profits. Gaining a little more knowledge in this area could pay huge dividends. I hope this post illustrates that.


So again, I am Josh Levine….i hope you got something out of that and would love if you would subscribe to the channel…it’s free and doesn’t hurt a bit. Please leave a thumbs up, post you comments and share with a friend. Now get out there and tell me what treasures you find.


Until next time…
