We at Rose Antiquities love the skilled craftsmanship from Africa, Middle East, India, China, Japan and the Orient. Antiques and old artefacts give a wonderful connection with these very varied cultures.

Their beautiful design for decoration and everyday use is today part of the interior designer's palette. The interior design market is looking for the unusual, creative, quirky and different - we have that.

We offer amongst other things:

  • Bold Calligraphy scrolls in the Chinese/Arabic languages.
  • Relief cast Japanese bronze mirrors beautifully embossed with foliage and calligraphy.
  • Brass/Bronze Middle East ornaments with exquisite silver inlay and intricate engraving.

  • Delicate watercolour paintings from India/Middle East/China on silk/pith/rice paper.
  • Lost wax casting of African bronze figures. Their type was an inspiration to Giacommetti.
  • African sculptures and wooden masks. Their type influenced Matisse, Picasso and Klee in the abstraction of the human figure.
  • Vibrantly colourful textiles/clothing from India, Africa, Middle and Far East.

Our extensive range of antiques is ideal for offering a country designed room theme for the interiors market. For example a China theme might include antiques: scroll painting, table top cabinet, cloisonne jar, brush pots, tea pots, and calligraphy. Display is very important for interior design.
