Located near Hong Kong and Macau, in the heart of China’s largest antique furniture district, Antiques 5000 is surrounded by over 500 fine antique dealers and art galleries.

Today, having over a century of combined knowledge and experience, Antiques 5000 contains over 3,000 pieces of the highest quality Chinese antique furniture available on the market today.Absolutely no reproductions.We employ several in-house artisans and restoration masters to restore, repair and prepare the furniture for display and shipping
