Edward Pranger Oriental Art specializes in antique Chinese and Japanese ceramics and works of art.
Displayed at G/F, 215 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, HONG KONG, the collection ranges from the Neolithic Age (3000 BC) up to the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1912).
Important pieces from China, Japan and Tibet
Highlights of the Chinese antiques include:
You will also find court- and fat-ladies, and ceramic funerary sculptures.
Ancient bronze ritual vessels, and inlaid bronze works of art such as objects for personal adornment, are a key part of this important collection of Asian antiques.
And Japanese art forms such as netsuke, lacquer, inro, tsuba and sagemono are prominently represented.
These pieces are invariably made from organic materials such as lacquer, ivory, wood, rhinoceros horn, soapstone and hardstones.
