Antique furniture in Shanghai

edited September 2009 in - China
I've been collecting antique furniture (and some nicer reproductions) primarily in Southern China near Guangzhou. But I have heard there are a number of warehouses of antiques in and around Shanghai. Does anyone have any information regarding antique furniture in this part of China? I've been shipping back both small pieces and large chests and cabinets. Our home is getting full but now I'm addicted to the hunt.

    I travel to Shanghai June this year, it is hot and humid. I like the shop of chinese antique furniture (sorry I don't know the name but i know the owner's cell phone 13621990301 or 13901685220 email:[email protected]) located in surburb of shanghai city named as qingpu district. (on the western direction of hongqiao airport) so not too far from American School Puxi Section.

    And they have full range of chinese antique furniture in their warehouse display, and ready for sell. you could point out which one you like to buy, and negotiate with the owner about prices you can accept.

    They use Elm wood and they have several wood finishes/ colors to choose from (all nice looking, not the cheap sh1t). The style is more traditional than other shops we have been to, but the quality is WAAAY better.

    They have their own factory ( not so far away) and they have a catalog of stuff they can do for you. they do speak english BUT I think you will be please with the quality of their stuff. Prices are reasonable (not cheap) but not crazy either.
