Original Chinese antiquities until 1945 from one of the dynasties of monarchs who ruled China, Ming, Qing, until 1911 or from the Republic period, from 1912 to 1949. Mainly paintings and calligraphy, sculptures and wood carvings, jade and lacquer, as well as porcelain. Ancient Chinese art followed the ancestral tradition and aims to express natural beauty, philosophical and religious currents.
Antique objects from China (and also from other Asian countries) are in fashion. A good proof of this is the great amount of pieces that can be found in auctions and shops of the sector. In fact, many interior designers use them for their work. The ancient Chinese were accomplished artists when it came to creating all kinds of objects, some of them commonly used as plates or boxes.
On the other hand, there is a legend that Chinese antiquities are expensive. Although it is true that some pieces have very high prices, there are precious objects coming from the Asian giant at very good prices. This is not the place to make a list of them but we will say that, saving pieces of great value, we can find vases, plates and other objects for an affordable amount to any pocket. And this in spite of the fact that, in many cases, they have more than a hundred years of history. It is enough to visit any of the many shops specialized in this type of oriental antiques to get a pleasant surprise and return home with a beautiful decorative piece.
The objects from China that we can find are of various kinds. On the one hand, we have the plates, generally painted by hand and of an extraordinary artistic quality, some real masterful drawing. There are also the trays, about which the same can be said. But perhaps the best known Chinese antiques are the vases. Leaving aside those of past dynasties, which are within the reach of very few, we can find beautiful pieces of this type at very good prices and also decorated by hand with great skill. But we can also find many other types of objects such as clocks, cigarette cases, fans or boxes. On the other hand, many of these objects have as raw material the famous Chinese porcelain, a reference in the world of oriental antiques. No wonder, it was the ancient inhabitants of the Asian giant who began to use it for their decorative pieces. Chinese porcelain has achieved worldwide fame. In short, Chinese antiques have a place everywhere because they match harmoniously with all types of decoration and, especially if we talk about Chinese porcelain, give a touch of indisputable distinction.
