Plymouth Auction Rooms are delighted to launch our specialist valuation events for Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art, covering a wide range of Chinese antiques. With the addition of a former Sotheby’s expert to our fast-growing team, there is no doubt that their wealth of experience within the industry will allow us to excel in this particular speciality.
With such high demand for Asian antiques underpinned by collectors from China, salerooms have produced incredible prices in recent years. Woolley & Wallis in particular has seen some great pieces in their department. An exceptional and extremely rare Chinese Imperial White Jade carving of a recumbent deer with its young (Qing Dynasty Qianlong Period 1736-95) sold under the gavel for an astounding £3,200,000.
Here at Plymouth Auction Rooms, we sold a rare pair of KANGXI birds for a remarkable £200,000 to an international collector. This secured interest in Chinese antiques and since then we’ve sold regular items of interest up into the thousands.
Our online sales platform taps directly into the worldwide market, putting your items in front of millions of people with specific interests. Now is a great time to bring your items along to the saleroom to meet our former Sotheby’s expert!
The valuation days will be happening monthly from March, here is a breakdown of the dates for your diary.
Monday 19th June

Whether you have a Chinese pot, an interesting painting or even an intricately carved piece of furniture, we are always happy to look and offer you a free valuation. If you can’t make it to the saleroom on the days listed above, you can always send us some images via WhatsApp or through our valuation form here. One of our auctioneers will take a look and get back to you with advice or a valuation estimate.
Later in the year, selected entries will be offered for sale at a specialist auction of Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art, so keep your eyes peeled on our social pages for updates on when this will be going ahead.
