“Here yesterday, gone today” – Some of the wonderful works of art that have found new homes in the last 12 months


As we approach the end of the calendar year, we allow ourselves one last look at some of our favourite pieces that we said a fond farewell to over the last twelve months.


SOLD: This masterful Silvered Bronze Hawk on Torii Gate spread it’s wings and found a new home in the Middle-East


In many ways it has been another difficult year for the trade with the knock-on effects of Brexit, Covid, devastating Global events and many other challenges but we were very happy to see some familiar faces as well as well as to welcome some new customers at our North London galleries in 2023.


SOLD: This powerful Bronze Lion Dog can now be found guarding a fascinating collection on the other side of the pond



Over the course of the last 12 months, we have shipped Chinese and Japanese works of art across Europe, the Middle-East, North America and the Far-East. It is always a huge relief when we hear that a delicate and valuable piece has arrived safely at its new home.



SOLD: This impressive pair of vases by Suzuki Chokichi were acquired by a passionate collector in South-East Asia



Of course, we are always sorry to say goodbye to such beautiful pieces, but we take solace in the knowledge that these works of art are being enjoyed in wonderful new surroundings.



SOLD: The same customer also added this Bronze and multi-metal dish to his growing collection of magical Meiji works 


Fear not though, we are not in danger of running short of inventory any time soon with exciting new arrivals coming to the gallery on a weekly basis.

SOLD: This unique vase has found a new home with a young collector in India


Our website is just a small selection of our overall collection though so if there is something in particular that you are looking for, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.


SOLD: This characterful rock-fish by Maruki is making a splash in South-East Asia


Our North London galleries are open Monday to Friday, 1030 – 1630 and at weekends by appointment only. Our website is 24/7 though and we will endeavour to reply to all enquiries on the same day.



SOLD: We were delighted that a new customer chose this Ryozan vase to add to his collection of Oriental works of art 


Over the course of the year, we have helped to raise thousands of pounds for our chosen charity, The Red Cross through our “What we Value” appraisal service. You can read more about that by clicking here.


SOLD: Closer to home… This beautiful lacquered wood Okimono of Jurojin has taken up residence in West-London


We would like to Thank all our customers and partners for their support in 2023 and of course, we wish you all the best for the year ahead.
