Chinese Antiques Walkabout

This Friday, 28 September, Stephan Welz & Co. – auctioneers of decorative arts – will host an educational walkabout with Chinese art dealer and specialist Johann Joubert. Titled 'Creating Awareness of Chinese Antiques', the walkabout will start with a tour of the sale room, set out with items from the Han, Ming and Qing Dynasty. Joubert will discuss Chinese antiques in general and elaborate in detail on selected pieces of furniture and artefacts from the sale room. He'll also give attendees some tips on spotting quality antiques and whether they're collectable. While the walkabout is open to all decor enthusiasts, serious Oriental collectors will find Joubert's wealth of knowledge particularly stimulating. The walkabout starts at 11am and will be approximately 60-90 minutes. There is no charge to attend. Stephan Welz & Co. is located at The Great Cellar, Alphen Drive, Constantia.
