The Coldingham Gallery

About us

Chinese Art in Scotland retails a wide variety of Chinese art sourced in Scotland and northern England and ranging from prints and watercolours to ceramics, sculptures, embroideries, scrolls, furniture and decorative items. Stock changes constantly but, generally, there is a wide range of many hundreds of artefacts dating from the 11th to the 20th century. We have the largest range of Chinese art commercially available to be found anywhere in Scotland.

The business is operated alongside The Coldingham Gallery in the Scottish borders, where a small sample of our stock is viewable. Personal callers are always welcome but are recommended to telephone in advance of a visit so that items of possible interest can be removed from our nearby stores and made available.

Goods are shipped throughout the world. We accept payment by all major credit and debit cards and also Paypal.

We also accept commissions to bid on your behalf at auctions in Scotland and northern England.
