If you have any questions at all about any of our policies or procedures please do not hesitate to ask. We will bend over backward to help you out. Like all relationships, we feel that shopping with us should be as personal as possible, and a relationship of trust should be built around that experience.
We carry both antique originals and authentic museum quality reproductions of fine period pieces from the Qing Dynasty through a present age in our stores. If the item is an authentic period piece from the Qing Dynasty we will have papers to back that up and will price the item accordingly. Common sense will tell you that if you find an antique snuff bottle on our site, or anywhere else, for less than that several hundred to a thousand or more US Dollars, it is probably a reproduction and not an original. We will not mislead you to believe you are paying US$ 30.00 for a US$2,000 item. We want you to trust in our word that what you are told is really what you are getting. If you have any questions about any of our products please ask us before making your purchase.
Our products are all hand crafted and finished by Chinese and Asian artists. Some will engrave their name right into the item they made. Each item is unique, no two will be exactly alike. Therefore you will not find another item exactly like yours in somebody else’s collection. When you receive your item it will be slightly different than the item in the photograph in the catalog. This is due to individual styles from one artist to the next, or differences in pigments used from one day to the next in the shop that made the item. Unlike buying souvenirs at a famous theme park, the emphasis in quality control with our artists is in the final artistry of the item, and not in carbon copy duplicity.
We want to thank you for taking time to view our site and want you to rest assured that the majority of our items for sale are unique and hand carved by master craftsmen unless otherwise stated.
Collectibles are from private collections and sourced from a variety of vendors and packaging of all products is done to an extremely high standard.
