Each year Sworders conducts two auctions dedicated to the sale of Asian Art. With an average sold rate of 85%, these sales are firmly established in the international auction calendar and are now fully previewed at Sworders London Gallery in the heart of the capital to coincide with Asian Art Week in London, when many leading dealers and collectors flock to the UK.
The department is headed by Yexue Li, whose experience growing up in China has helped shape her expert knowledge and understanding of the market. In 2019 she successfully identified a Chinese Imperial Famille Rose wall vase Qianlong (1736-1975) that had been purchased locally from a charity shop for just £1. Standing at a mere 19cm high, it sold it to a Chinese collector for £484,000.
Combining her specialist subject knowledge with an extensive network of contacts across mainland China and Hong Kong has contributed to the rapid growth and success of Sworders Asian Art sales.
Sworders offers a fully bespoke service from start to finish, including valuation services, comprehensive condition reporting, payment facilitation, and international shipping. An experienced marketing team works tirelessly to maximise exposure and all sales are promoted heavily across the leading social media platforms in China.

A collection of Chinese silver assembled by a family who lived in Shanghai in the early 20th century comes for sale at Sworders in November. The group of typical ‘export’ wares owned by the vendor’s grandparents who lived in ‘the Paris of the East’ had been stored in a trunk since the end of The Second World War.
