Fine Chinese Jades, you bet!



The sale of fine Chinese Jades in Chinese and Hong Kong Auction Houses and the realized prices give an indication about the new buying power of Chinese Jade Connoisseurs.

In a Chinese book , with the title “Fine Chinese Jades” and published by Shan Dong Art Publisher in January 2005 in China (ISBN 7-5330-1998-9), the most prestigious items are described and illustrated together with the asked and the final auction price in RMB (100 US$ now 802 RMB and in Hong Kong Dollars (100 US$ now 776 HK$)
