Established in 1973 as a specialist in Chinese export porcelain, Cohen and Cohen is now starting its 41st year as the leader in this field.
Many major museums are now showing important pieces supplied by our company and include The British Museum, The Groeninger Museum, The Peabody Essex Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, East India Company Museum l’Orient, Winterthur and Hong Kong Maritime Museum. We have also been instrumental in the formation of some of the World’s most important private collections.
Among others we show at The Winter Antiques Show in New York and at TEFAF Maastricht and a visitor to either of these locations or to our website can expect to find an extensive choice of items including pieces of exceptional quality and rarity.
Our inventory will always contain pieces that will appeal to the new collector on a limited budget or to the established collector seeking the greatest rarity. Our catalogues aim to document and record newly discovered pieces as well as revealing new scholarship on known types - and all set within the social history of the period (mainly the 18th Century).
All items on our website carry a guarantee of authenticity and that the condition will be as stated on enquiry.
