Hansons specialises in the diverse beauty of Asian art and ceramics in all its forms.
Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian and Himalayan art is celebrated by this department, which sees a wide variety of objects including metalwork, sculptures, netsuke, furniture and more.
With pieces spanning history, from modern 20th Century objects to the Neolithic, Qing and Jomon periods, every item has a story just waiting to be discovered.
The current strength of the Far Eastern market, where works of art and antiques are being bought back to their homeland, has led to a rapid increase in the value of items.
Promoting items worldwide and selling two-thirds of Asian arts objects into Asian markets, this department has achieved some amazing sales. For example, a rare Chinese Qianlong vase fetched £650,000 at auction and a Chinese plate dating back to 1723-1735, which has a replica in the National Museum of China, sold for £230,000.
