    Our collection started off about fifty years ago with Chinese and Japanese cloisonné. Inspired by a father who began searching for Chinese collectibles in the 1950’s and 60’s we grew up surrounded by beautiful things. Today our collection comprises among other things antique Chinese bronzes, Han, Sui, Tang and Ming pottery objects, calligraphic items, textiles as well as Burmese opium weights. And during a three years’ stay in Ghana we added to our collection African trade beads, gold weights, small Fon-bronzes, Ghanaian king’s stools, ‘linguist sticks’ and other things of interest. With the advice of Chinese and European dealer friends and an extensive library on Chinese art, our knowledge improved over a period of more than 50 years, allowing us to distinguish the right from the wrong which is important with the ever increasing number of forgeries.     Please bear in mind that we are not dealers but collectors so we don’t own a shop where you can see our collection. However we only sell genuine antiques and for that reason specified details accompany every item in the collection.

In all my years of buying hats on eBay, I don’t think that I have ever met such a meticulous and conscientious seller. The communication was great. He even sent me photos of each step of the packaging process as he packed up the hat that I bought from him. The item arrived weeks before the projected delivery date and the packaging was incredible. The hat is as advertised and I’m very happy with this purchase.
