    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.
Bamboo, wood, ivory and horn carvings used to attract little attention over the years. However,small as they are, they are an important category in China' s arts and crafts, noted for their rare materials,exquisite workmanship and long history. It is for this reason that they have begun to arouse the interest of collectors in recent years. Since 2003, in particular, they have become new favorites on the artwork investment market.
