LIVE 24-SEVEN ASIAN ART FIELDINGS’ EXPANSION INTO THE ASIAN ART MARKET


Here at Fieldings we see a wealth of beautiful treasures from the Far East; I find it hugely exciting to think of the history of how these exquisite pieces from China and Japan, dating back hundreds of years, made their way to our clients and eventually our Stourbridge saleroom.


We have had some exciting finds over the years: a Qianlong Period (1736-95) altar vessel that sold for £56,000; a Chinese 18th century celadon vase that sold for £38,000; and a Chinese 17th/18th century carved rhino horn libation cup (see images).

Will Farmer is our antiques & collectors expert, he is well known for his resident work on the Antiques Roadshow, he has also written for the popular ‘Miller’s Antique Guide’. Those in the know will have also come across him at ‘Fieldings Auctioneers’. We are delighted that Will writes for Live 24-Seven, he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise.


I would therefore like to welcome our newest member, Rachel Houston- Holland, to our already comprehensive team of specialists and consultants, making Fieldings Auctioneers the only Auctioneers in the West Midlands to have a dedicated Asian Art Department and really the only auction house to visit if you wish to have your Asian treasures valued.


Rachel comes to us with over 15 years’ experience in the Arts and Heritage sector. After completing an undergraduate and postgraduate degree in Fine Art and Fine Art Conservation, Rachel worked for several museums and galleries before starting her auction career with Bonhams Auctioneers back in 2006, quickly rising to Asian Art specialist after two years. Her passion for Asian Art stems back to early childhood, where her father frequently travelled overseas, bringing back pieces of porcelain and interesting Chinese artefacts. This was the start of a love affair Rachel was to have with the rich history associated with these pieces and according to her she is a very lucky lady to turn her passion into a job!


Rachel joined the team in early 2019 after working as Regional Head of Fine Art and Asian Art Specialist for Cheshire-based firm Wright Marshall.


Her most exciting finds include a single owner collection of beautiful Chinese jades, porcelains and textiles, which went on to sell in a London saleroom for over £500,000 and a ‘suitcase full of Chinese jades’ that came in on a regular valuation day and were quite literally thrown on the desk in a suitcase and went on to sell for over £250,000.


Rachel commented: “You just never know what you are going to see from one day to the next, that is why our job is so exciting, one day I can find a £50,000 vase in a small terraced house that belonged to Aunty Betty, or can be valuing exquisite collections for museums.”

The market for Chinese and Japanese works of art really has seen some changes in recent years, with certain sectors getting their turn in the spotlight, but Chinese porcelain really does remain the strongest contender and the one to grab all the headlines. We all remember the £53 million vase sold in a small regional auctioneers
