Chinese antiques have long charmed collectors with their intricate details, opulent use of materials and artisan craftsmanship. It is for this very reason that they remain a lucrative investment. From the Qing, Jiaqing, Daoguang and Qianlong dynasties, each period has a distinct style – all of which are uniquely beautiful. Likewise, Japanese antiques have garnered a lot of attention over the years among collectors, dealers and individuals alike. From the refined Momoyama Period – famed for its use of black lacquer, gilded with gold or mother of pearl – to the decorative Showa Period, there are many noticeable differences that set each era apart. Islamic art and furniture, meanwhile, is characterised by its use of geometric shapes and calligraphy, as well as its arabesque style. Many art forms originate from the Middle East, including woven carpets and rugs, and are often defined by periods such as Ottoman, Safavid and Mughal.
