What are Some Tips for Collecting Asian Antiques?
When collecting Asian antiques, look for rare, distinctive pieces with intricate designs. Consider the quality and the condition, as well as the prominence of the artist. Craftsmanship is an important part of Asian antiques, so you should look for superb artistry when studying potential pieces to buy. Seek out precious materials, such as jade, silver, bronze, and porcelain as well as decorative items like bowls, plates, pots, statues, vases, jewelry, and paintings. When collecting jade, consider smaller pendants, carvings, and snuff bottles, as those require more work and are often worth more than large pieces. Seek the advice of seasoned collectors, and study reference materials to get an idea of which items have the most value and which artists to look for.
How Should You Clean an Antique Jade Carving?
Begin by gathering dish soap, water, ammonia, a bucket, soft cloths, and a soft brush. You may also need beeswax, a soft toothbrush, and a lint-free cloth. For occasional cleanings, simply use dish soap and water to rid the piece of dust and grime. Use light pressure and the bristles of a soft brush to get into all of the crevices. If the piece has many fragile, delicate parts, then simply run it under a gentle stream of water and scrub it very gently. Lay the carving on a soft cloth in a warm room to dry, or dry it in a 100-degree oven while watching over it. Next, apply a layer of beeswax, and then rub a dry toothbrush over the wax to massage it against the carving. Repeat this process in small sections, and then allow the wax to cool for several hours. Finally, use a soft cloth to buff the surface of the carving and push the wax into the pores.
