From handcrafted decorative objects to beautiful ceramics and unique antique accessories, we have a wonderful selection of fabulous gift suggestions to ensure your Christmas is extra special.

Unique and Unusual Christmas Presents from the Past

If you’re searching for a truly unique and unusual Christmas present, you’ll find that our range of original Chinese accessories offers a wide choice of beautiful pieces. From antique wooden jewellery boxes and wooden tea barrels to ornately painted rice measures and lacquered trays, original items such as these make gifts which are out of the ordinary and designed to be treasured for years to come. Perfect for those who are fascinated by the past and love homewares with an unconventional twist, our antique accessories can be used as eye-catching decorative pieces, or as storage for jewellery or cosmetics, for example.

We source our antiques directly from China where each item is carefully selected by us for its charm and original beauty. Antique pieces make wonderful gifts as not only is each one slightly different, but also demonstrate the care and thought put into your choice of gift.
