Antiques and Collectables

Antiques and collectibles may seem an unlikely bed-fellow for bonsai trees. However bonsai collectors have an eye for beautiful things and many share a passion for the Oriental. Over the years we have gathered up an interesting collection of intricately crafted beautiful curios.

Here we offer some for sale. All of the items listed here have been obtained from bona-fide sources like auction houses, and are genuine items exactly as described. All of these products are 1 off and unique. Any items made of ivory are pre 1947 and unworked after that date and are therefore legal to sell and own in the U.K.
