    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.
Chinese antique furniture enjoys thousand year-long history from the Neolithic Age to Nineteenth Century. With Chinese folk customs, geography and climate, manufacturing and religion factors, Chinese antique furniture forms a fine craftsmanship, simple design and proper decoration style which differs from its counterpart in western and is the unique one in the world. Chinese antique furniture, the rarity in antique artworks, is of commercial value and artistic merit. Chinese antique furniture is now becoming the attraction to collectors.
