About

From seventeenth century enamel to master silver work of the early twentieth century, my inventory spans the golden age of Chinese and Japanese craftsmanship. My first forays into the antiques world were as a young teenager, hunting for painted blanket chests in the Appalachian mountains of Pennsylvania. I received my B.A. in Art and Marketing from American University in Washington, DC, and have since received extensive training in Fine Art and antiques throughout New England and the Midwest. In New England, I was fortunate to handle some of best Chinese Export art in the world at Polly Latham Asian Art and gain valuable experience at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA and Northeast Auctions in Portsmouth, NH. I have also had the great privilege to be invited to assess, sell, and handle some of America’s great private collections.

Currently, I live in Saint Paul, Minnesota, with my wife and daughter, where I am the founder and owner of Blanchet Asian Art. I deal primarily in Chinese and Japanese art, as well as fine jewelry. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Shipping around the world is no problem. Whether you have a large porcelain vase or a delicate textile we work with shippers to carefully pack and transport your object.

I stand behind my assertions of age, quality, and condition. If you receive and item and feel it is not, I will be more then happy to take it back.

All of the items are carefully researched before sale. Upon request detailed reports of similar objects at auction and in museums can be produced.

Should an item need conservation or restoration I use a network of specialists around the country to make sure items are stabilized and ready for presentation.
