plcombs Dealers of Chinese Antique Buyers
Due to a worldwide demand being driven by China’s expanding economy we have customers eagerly willing and able to buy. As a result, we are always interested in buying single items or entire collections. Currently, our customers are particularly interested in fine vases, bowls, and chargers from the Ming to late Qing period. Demand is also very strong for good quality bronzes, silk, jades, early Chinese books and scroll paintings.
Our search for appropriate inventory is never ending, as a consequence, we’re always happy to examine items in all mediums. If you have a collection or single item, get in touch with us about selling your collection.
Consignments – Art Brokerage
During the last 35 years, on behalf of hundreds of executors and collectors we have performed appraisals, advised on equitable distributions, brokered, and bought collections outright. Often injecting much-needed liquidity into estates while other matters are being cleared up.
We work for our customers to find the best venue available for marketing their object(s) or collections. Whether items are sold via a direct sale to a collector or institution or placed with an appropriate auction house we have the experience to do it all seamlessly and with little fuss.
