Asia week is right around the corner. Starting in mid march New York City will be home to some of the most beautiful Asian antiques in the world. Artwork from China, Japan, India, Southeast Asia and Korea will be displayed. Manhattan auctions, museums and galleries will be showcasing their best items. New York will be welcoming thousands of visitors from Asia. These visitors hope to see some great examples of Asian art and antiquities. Some will be in town to browse, but many are coming to purchase.
The strongest markets in past years have been Chinese, Southeast Asian and India. These markets are expected to do well once again. However, many Asian art specialists say the markets aren’t quite as strong as they were just a couple of years ago. It will be interesting to see how the auctions do in 2015. The main auctions participating in Asia week this year are Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Doyle, Bonhams and Igavel.
Asian antique dealers and gallery owners are doing their best to acquire fine examples of Chinese and Southeast Asian art before Asia Week. If you are looking to sell Asian goods, now is a great time to do so. Dealers tend to pay top dollar right before Asia Week. They need to be sure they have enough of the appropriate merchandise to make all the visiting Asian collectors happy. If you need a few recommendations of competitive Asian antique art buyers, let us know. We are happy to help.
