The Modern Day Chinese Antique Collectors World
For many people collecting Chinese and Asian antiques is an all-encompassing pastime involving a very steep learning curve. It is also a very rewarding and fulfilling endeavour. Finding that one great thing in an obscure place that makes your heart soar and you must have it.
The entire process is sadly made difficult by the bounty of false information permeating the web from dozens of sources. This does not include the hundreds of monthly auctions peppered with or composed entirely of mediocre copies to fine reproductions.
The clever copyists in China know what you want, they know a lot about porcelain, bronzes, jades and numerous other mediums. They will do everything they can to cajole your money from your wallet for the wrong thing.
