January Newsletter

Dear Friends

May I take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a happy and healthy new year!!

Where to begin with our 2018 highlights?

It is difficult to fully cover in one newsletter the many extraordinary finds and magical experiences that this last year has delivered, unprecedented would be a good choice of word, and I thank those of you who have continued to support me on this journey.

One personal highlight and summary of what I strive to achieve landed in my inbox on the 5th Dec, from a UK collector that had purchased one of our newly listed beautiful Ivory Okimono Bijin, upon receipt the customer was clearly inspired to keep all three of these beauties together and proceeded to purchase the other two.

With their prior permission I copy below the exact e-mail I received that day.

Hi Steve
Excellent!!! Outstanding beauty and carving and outstanding service!!! They’re exquisite!!! I’m really very pleased to have bought them.
Thank you so much.
Best wishes for a Merry Xmas and a Very Happy New Year
Kind regards
K. Theo

If testimonials like this don’t inspire you to get to work in the morning nothing ever will!!

In other news Ryan is moving on to a new and exciting career opportunity, in brief summary he has relocated to Sussex to be with his girlfriend, who by coincidence is starting out in a new job in January.

Ryan will be working full time for a leading auction house on the Surrey/ Sussex borders, as well as learning all aspects of the auction business he will be keen to add to his knowledge of Asian Art working within the successful oriental department, I’m sure those of you that have met Ryan over the years will wish him every success for the future.

A relocation to a new area coupled with new jobs, is a big step for two 20 somethings in today’s challenging society, I wish them both well.
