We were established in 1993 as the first auction house to primarily focus on Chinese antiques and artworks. This year marks the 20th anniversary of China Guardian and our third auction in Hong Kong. To commemorate this important occasion, we spent over six months examining collections around the world to find exceptional works for the Autumn Auction. Thanks to the support of different collectors, we are proud to present a significant number of masterpieces as well as our first evening auction and Chinese oil painting sale. Our goal is always to show renowned masterpieces, provide outstanding buying opportunities and at the same time, offer discerning collectors a multi-channel platform. said China Guardian (Hong Kong) President Ms. Hu Yanyan.
