Art Antiques Auctions launches Chinese and early European ceramics auction in Mayfair

Art Antiques Auctions launches on the 7th November with its inaugural specialist ceramics auction to coincide with Asian Week in London. Located in The Music Room in Mayfair, Art Antiques Auctions will be one of the first independent auction houses that charges no vendor commission.

The auction will include rare and important Chinese porcelain, oriental ceramics and early European pieces.  The sale features a diverse collection of 17th and early 18th century Chinese and Japanese ceramics from co-founder Anthony Lovett’s impressive personal collection, which he has accumulated over 25 years of collecting.  Highlights include a strong offering of Kangxi Blue and White and Famille Verte porcelain and a number of high quality Japanese Kakiemon and Arita wares.

The sale will also contain carefully selected items from other sources. For example an early Ming guan from a collector in Gloucestershire, a late but interesting iron brush pot made for the Tibetan market comes from a London collector, there is a finely cast English silver teapot in the Chinese style dated to 1815 and many other desirable items.

The three directors have a combined experience of dealing with and cataloguing early Chinese and other ceramics of over 80 years. Each has an avid interest in antique ceramics and works of art inspired by the Orient that goes back decades. With this extensive experience the auction house aims to provide an exceptional and comprehensive service.

Set in the Music Room, the sale could not be better placed. Minutes from Bond Street, the venue provides easy access for visitors and collectors who are in London for Asian Week. Not by accident the Music Room is situated above Grays Antiques, home to some of London's finest antique dealers, including many who deal in Chinese and Asian art.
