Collecting with Michael Taylor: Chinese Jade and Chinoiserie Chic

Every collector has their special area of interest, and we can’t get enough of carved jade. Antique or modern, the timeless beauty of jade has proved hard to resist.  We have some truly magnificent 19th and 20th century pieces in Gallery I.

Jade has been prized throughout the ages for its durability and beauty and historically significant pieces of carved jade abound in museums and in private collections.

Most Chinese jade today comes from the northwestern province of Xinjiang.

Color varies from white, to yellow, to dark green and all shades in between. The neutral tones of jade pieces blend into both traditional and contemporary décor.

We also love chinoiserie art, furniture and accents and feature several large carvings, vases and cabinets in Gallery I.

Whether you are a fan of chinoiserie chic, or are just looking for authentic and interesting art to fill your home, we have a fabulous selection. Please come by and ask manager Jerry for a personal tour of our jade pieces; he’d be happy to show you what we’ve got in stock.

Also, this week we’re offering a 25% discount on all accessories in Gallery I, which includes jewelry and home décor.

We’re open Thurs.-Sat., 10am-5pm, or by appointment. We’ll see you soon!

My best,

Michael Taylor and Company
