The true art to buying Asian antiquities
London, 20 May 2011
Buying Asian art is becoming increasingly frenetic but thankfully the-saleroom.com creates a one-stop shop, helping buyers to find items to suit their taste (and budget). The-saleroom.com brings together over 400 established bricks and mortar auction houses, lists over 80,000 lots and hosts over a 1,000 live auctions every year.
Many of the major auction houses, including Christie's, Dreweatts, Dukes, Sworders, Chorleys and Woolley & Wallis, host their Asian art sales this month. With the-saleroom.com buyers can search through the numerous catalogues, view items of interest and often bid online for their desired items, all with the click of their mouse. This time-saving website is revolutionising the buying and selling of antique and vintage pieces.
Searching for particular items on the site, such as popular jade marriage bowls or boxes from the Kangxi period, is easy thanks to the freetext search tool. Jon Peacock, E-Commerce Manager at ATG Media which manages the-saleroom.com, states that searches for 'Chinese antiques' has increased by 90% in the last year - a statistic which clearly illustrates the increase in demand for Asian art and antiques.
In this increasingly competitive market buyers need to stay informed. The-saleroom.com lists details of all sales and, using the site's online Price Guide, buyers can research prices realised on items previously sold through the website.
