Save a lot of money on Chinese-auction-catalogs-from-Sothebys-Christies
For decades smart and successful collectors and dealers have relied on the information found in the auction catalogs put out by the major auctions houses. Once the sale is over, they sell them off in lots to book dealers for less than HALF price. The auction may be over, but the content remains just as valuable.
Today's major auction house catalogs have more detailed information than can be found in some the best scholarly publications put out by museums for hundreds of dollars. They are now all fully illustrated in color with all pertinent information including estimated values. Chinese art catalogs from Sotheby's and Christies can be bought at sharply discounted prices by as much as 90% after the auctions are over.
Sotheby's, Christies and Bonhams have on staff many of the most knowledgeable minds in the business who themselves also have often published their own scholarly books. For the price of one good book, you can buy five or ten outstanding catalogs, often with better illustrations. Additionally, you can visit the websites of any auction house and download for FREE the prices realized to go with your catalogs. Knowing the prices is after all pretty important.
Learn the way dealers and top collectors learn...from the real experts, the folks in the business who are the market makers in today's Chinese and Asian Art market.
NOTE: With the catalog you can in most cases go to the websites of the auction houses and download for FREE the prices realized.
Build a Library...you'll end up buying better more scholarly objects, and things you WANT to live with.
