Chinese Antiques Market Booming!!! £2000 for Blue and White Chinese Jar £1300 for Chinese Sceptre

The rapid growth of the Chinese economy over the last few years has now resulted in a massive demand for good quality Chinese antiques, with many of the better off Chinese attempting to buy back some of their” heritage”, in other words, some of the high quality items historically exported/ plundered over the last four hundred years. It is this rapidly increasing demand that has caused a continual upsurge in prices at antique auctions all over the UK, with some of the buyers being Chinese based in China and others all over the world. It is also the development of the internet, which has resulted in many auctioneers, becoming truly international, including Gerrards, where their Chinese sales have recently grown in value and volume, for example, the Chinese Blue and White Jar and Chinese Ruyi Sceptre, featured in the two photographs, would have fetched a few hundred pounds a year ago. So, if you have any pieces of Chinese porcelain or other interesting Chinese items (and most of us have something like this in a cupboard or in the attic), now is the time to let the experts at Gerrards have a look at it, to see if you can take advantage of the current trend, by placing it in auction, with a protective reserve price.

ST GEORGES ROAD LYTHAM ST ANNES FY8 2AE

Chinese, Large Porcelain Jar, painted in underglaze blue, with scrolling lotus foliage, within ruyi lappet borders, 36cms high, in excellent condition. Sold for £2000 to buyer in the UK Aug 2011

AUTO-TECH

www.auto-tech.co.uk

Your Local Service Centre

Family-run business Auto-Tech has been servicing and repairing all models of cars and light vans in the Over Wyre and Poulton areas since 1990. Auto-Tech has built a sterling reputation for consistently providing a quality service, and is a member of both the Motor Vehicle Repairers Association (MVRA) and the National Service Network. Modern vehicles are packed with the latest electronics and gadgets, all of which can go wrong at any time. But by investing in the latest diagnostic equipment, Auto-Tech can quickly and efficiently find any problems before fixing them – so if you have a fault there is no need to pay high dealer prices. Under new legislation, motorists are given more choice in their decision as to who can service and repair their car, meaning that, in most circumstances, Auto-Tech can look after you without affecting your warranty.

36

And with a full repair workshop, Auto-Tech can provide servicing, MOTs, tyres, exhausts, brakes, clutches, batteries, and much more - including air conditioning. Used not only in summer to keep you cool, but also in winter to demist your windows, your car’s air con system loses 10 to 15% of its gas annually. Most manufacturers recommend ‘recharging’ your system every two years and - with the latest technology Auto-Tech can easily do this for you. What’s more, Auto-Tech’s tyre prices are highly competitive, and are, in most instances, cheaper than the national “quick fit” companies. Auto-Tech prides itself on always providing a quality service at a reasonable price, and is happy to offer you a quote today for any work that you may require. It would also like to thank their existing customers for their continued loyalty over the past 21 years, and look forward to saying hello when your vehicle requires care.
