Our Services

I do hope that during your visit to my new Online Gallery you will enjoy sharing my passion for the Japanese Works of Art that I offer. These are predominantly from the opulent Meiji period (1868-1912) .

The most enjoyable part of my business is without doubt the discovery and hopefully the acquisition of wonderful things. This usually involves meeting fellow enthusiasts in many different circumstances to discuss and appraise their treasures, always with the aim of concluding a “deal” that satisfies wherever possible the aspirations of all parties! My business philosophy dictates that in any such “deal” it is essential that everyone emerges happy. This is the solid basis for long term trusting relationships.

Surprisingly the aspect that I find most difficult is often actually parting with these lovely works of art!

However the experience gained over many years of being involved in the worldwide buying and selling of Japanese Meiji Works of Art enables me to offer advice, informed opinion and additional services to collectors both new and old and to any others who find themselves fortunate enough to possess such beautiful objects. Consequently if I can be of assistance in any of the following circumstances please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

 

VALUATIONS

I am often asked to provide valuations on individual items or entire collections both formally and informally. Valuations can of course be required for varying reasons including sale, insurance, probate etc. and provided the works of art fall within the scope of my experience I would be delighted to discuss your requirements. Client confidentiality is absolutely guaranteed.

CITES LICENCES

We are experts in ensuring the safe legal movement of many of these materials to various countries ensuring that they are accompanied by a valid CITES certificate. I am able to provide these certificates for the objects that I sell and will happily guide you through the correct procedures, ensuring safe passage for your valuable work of art.
