The next auction at Dallas Auction Gallery in Dallas, Texas is September 7 and 8, 2011.  It is an auction of Asian Antiques and Fine Art.  There are some very interesting pieces in this auction including this Chinese Qing carved canopy bed. Dallas Auction is open to bidders both in house and on the internet. It will be interesting to see how the auction results compare to previous Asian art and collectible auctions.

 According to Wes Cowan of Cowan’s Auction in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Asian art market has exploded. China is reported as being the number one art market in the world. Between 2009 and 2010, the art market has doubled. Cowan’s May auction of 80 pieces of Chinese carved ivory, porcelain and jade brought in nearly $400,000.00. Their next Asian Art Auction is scheduled for August 26 and 27, 2011.

About askbeverly

Who am I? I am an individual who values the contents of people's homes for a variety of reasons. I'm called a "personal property appraiser" and certified by the International Society of Appraisers which requires educational courses, examinations, keeping up with current tax laws and every two years taking a course called the Uniform Standards of Personal Property Appraisals. Every five years, I am required to keep up my ISA certification by proving I have a minimum of 100 personal property development credits - that's course hours and actual research time spend on appraisal work. As a long time collector I have turned a hobby into a profession and for the last 22 years worked as an independent appraiser. My specialties include china, pottery, sterling silver, crystal and glassware, costume jewelry, Carnival Glass, Belleek Irish porcelain, collectibles and furniture. Why do you need an appraisal? The purpose of an appraisal may be for obtaining insurance, probate of an estate, equitable division of an estate or divorce, or a damage claim. I also give lectures on several different topics to antique clubs, provide consultations in person, by phone and through email. No my service is not free! But I will also advise you if I believe it is in your best interest to do research on your own if you just want an idea of what something is worth rather than pay for an appraisal.
