While a great many collectibles are suffering as a result of the current economy, quality Chinese antiques are experiencing a resurgence in collector interest over the past few years. This renewed interest has resulted in increased demand and record prices for better Chinese antiquities. Much of the resurgence in Chinese antiques such as jade, ivory and porcelains is attributed to the recent increase in personal wealth in China. For centuries, through trade, war, theft and sale many of better Chinese antiques and heirlooms left China. With the rise of the Chinese economy and a growing middle-upper class, wealthier Chinese collectors are seeking to purchase many of these items. This new, wealthier. collector base is driving value and also returning many of the best Chinese antiquities back to China.
