Vintage Arts:Regional Art


Focus on Asian art B & C Antiques began in 1982 after we spent many years as collectors. As our Asian antiques collection began to grow, we found that our area of collecting interest became focused more specifically on Japanese antiques. Fascinated with Japanese art and culture, we even went so far as to design and build a Japanese style home. Our tastes gravitate primarily to those items that were created for domestic use and not so much for export items which, although simple or commonplace, reflect a quiet elegance and inner beauty. Items which express the concept of Shibui.

Japanese and Chinese antiques For nearly twenty years, we dealt in Asian antiques on a limited basis while we pursued corporate careers. Our articles on Japanese and Chinese antiques have been published in Arts of Asia and Daruma magazines. Now that we are both retired, we have become more active buyers and sellers of Japanese and Chinese antiques. We welcome any inquiries to request additional information or photographs or to advise us of specific items in which you have an interest.

B & C ANTIQUES WILL BE CLOSING IN 2015. After over 30 years in the antiques business, the time has come for B & C Antiques to phase out and close by the end of the year. After the death of my husband and business partner, I have been unable to maintain it on my own, so as of December 2015, the business will cease. I have marked down the prices on many of my listed items, and I am willing to consider any reasonable offers. I will also do my best to add more new inventory in the upcoming months. I would like to thank all my wonderful online customers for their interest and their confidence over the past 13 years, and I look forward to working with you again in the upcoming final months.
