Asian Art

Bellmans' Asian Ceramics and Works of Art Department holds Specialist Asian Art & Ceramics auctions every quarter.

Among the Asian Art highlights were a large 18th century Canton enamel plaque which sold for £80,000 and a 17th century Chinese blanc de chine figure of Guanyin reached £39,000. A 16th century Tibetan gilt bronze of the female deity Green Tara which had been purchased at a car boot sale for £25, was brought in to one of our weekly free valuation days and went on to sell for £32,000.

Our specialists have decades of experience in Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Islamic porcelain, paintings, silver and works of art. Bellmans sells to both specialist dealers as well as private collectors in the UK and internationally, with a strong following in America, Europe and the Chinese mainland.

Valuations take place both in our Sussex Saleroom and our London office on Brook Street, Mayfair, as well as 'pop-up' valuation days across the country. Preliminary estimates can also be provided via email and we are delighted to arrange home visits.
