Over the years, we have purchased goods from all parts of China, but we now focus our purchasing from the dealers and markets in Beijing because Beijing’s climate is most similar to the climate in the northeast US, our primary customer base. We have found that furniture from Shanghai and southern China tends to shrink when exposed to the dry winter climate in New England. In addition to our buying in Asia we buy regularly from auctions and individuals in America and Europe in order to obtain fine Asian antiques and art.
We have built a reputation of quality goods, great prices, and superb customer service! We ship both nationally and internationally as well. Our site provides a variety of items displaying approximate age, origin, and material. Let us know if you would like to have more information on a particular item. If any specific item is out of stock we’ll send pictures of our existing stock or we’ll ask our sources in Asia to find the right piece for you. Thank you for visiting China Trader Antiques.
