The Chinese and Japanese have been producing fine works of art for thousands of years, from porcelain to bronze and paintings and prints. With the emergence of a less rigid society China has become a leading player in the art market and buying back many assorted objects for the growing number of collectors. Porcelain normally tops the list of desirable items and many Ming period pieces and archaic bronzes are returning home. Japanese decoration to porcelain and bronzes tends to be finer with bronze okimonos and boxwood netsukes always proving popular.

India, Tibet and Burma also produce wonderful and intricate pieces equally sort after collectors. There are bronzes, textiles, silver wares and more with so much having been brought to the UK by those returning from working in the Empire and later Commonwealth
