    About this book

'Highlights of Auctioned Chinese Antiques' comprises five volumes, namely,'Bamboo, Wood, Ivory and Horn Carvings', 'Porcelain', 'Jadeware', 'Bronzeware' and 'Ancient Furniture'. Each volume contains around 150 representative items put up for auction from 1995 to 2010 at auctions held by dozens of auction companies fromcities like New York, Nagel, London, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei, Beijing, Shanghai.Tianjin, Nanjing, Guangzhou, Kunming, Chengdu and Jinan. The selection of the items is based on the style, texture, form, decorative pattern, workmanship, function, culturalimplication and value of the antiques in question, including some items which have not yet been transacted.
With the in depth research of academic circles on jadewares both unearthed from ancient tombs and handed down through the ages, the collection of jadewares has become an unprecedented craze, and in some cases, the transaction of jadewares has become a means for exorbitant profits. In spite of a number of fine items in private transactions and public auctions held by auction companies, the phenomena of passing off shoddy items as certified items, new items as old items, fake items as genuine items, those of later times as those of earlier times and items of other materials as items of jade do exist. This has thrown the messy jadeware market into considerable disorder. To give our readers a better understanding of the jadeware market and the reliability of their collected articles so that their collections would be worth their value, we recommend the following points of attention in the purchase and collection of jadewares.
