We are a small business dealing exclusively in Japanese Antiques, predominantly from the Meiji period (1868-1912).  It was during this time that Japan opened up to the West and the Emperor encouraged its highly skilled craftsmen to showcase their work to the rest of the world. Meiji period work is characterised by its attention to detail and the high quality of the workmanship.

Our particular speciality is Satsuma ware although we do offer other Japanese items such as Cloisonné and Bronzes.  However we are only showcasing Satsuma pieces this time, all of which are from the Meiji period.

We have been exhibiting at the Antiques for Everyone Fairs for many years.
