Recognised as one of the world’s most acclaimed dealers of antique Chinese porcelain and works of art, Marchant was founded in 1925 by Samuel Sydney Marchant (1897-1975) and is still managed today by the third and fourth generations of the Marchant family in London.

Whilst Marchant’s are primarily renowned for dealing in Imperial Ming and Qing porcelain, for many years they have also been deeply involved with the category of jade carvings. Their first dedicated jade catalogue, which followed eight previous catalogues dedicated to porcelain, was published in 1995, entitled Post-Archaic Chinese Jades, celebrating their 70th anniversary. Marchant pride themselves on fine pieces that have passed through their hands, many now in major museums and important collections worldwide.

In the words of Stuart Marchant, the third generation of the Marchant family: “Jade has always been a favourite subject of mine. When I was a young boy it was the only Chinese art material that my father and grandfather allowed me to handle. The tactile nature of the stones gives great pleasure, especially antique pieces which have been fondled and enjoyed through history.”

‘Marchant est. 1925: Fine Chinese Jade Carvings’ sale features a selection of 88 lots, from many prestigious collections around the world.
