Far East Asian Art is a specialty group for Trocadero members. Members have listed select items here since 2001. Ten years later, in 2011, we introduced
specialty Asian auctions - powered be Vervendi - scheduled to close for bidding on the second Wednesday of every month.
Please see our schedule for more detailed information.

Sellers are Trocadero members. To sell on Far East Asian Art, one can join Trocadero. To participate in Asian art auctions, the member must also have at least 25 items in antique
Asian art categories, must have elected to show in venue on Trocadero for antique Asian categories, and must meet with continuing scrutiny of listings for compliance with terms of membership (a waiver to these antique Asian art requirements may be requested if specializing in appropriate later Asian art). Sellers may be asked for references when beginning to list to antique Asian art
categories after registering. Trocadero management administers Far East Asian Art auctions and reserves authority to withdraw items from auction which it deems may possibly
be problematic for would be buyers or for venue credibility.
Bidders are registered Vervendi users. Bidder registration with Vervendi is free. Then the
bidder can request paddles from supported Auctioneers including Far East Asian Art. This can also be free or a nominal charge might be authorized for verification purposes (but then
typically voided or refunded according to the auctioneer's policy.) Far East Asian Art is presently not making any charge upon registration (which presently is free.)
~ about the illustration - right: Our ads that appeared in the May-June, in the July-August and in the September-October issues of Arts of Asia. Featured are lots that were in our auctions for the six months covered by these issues.
~ the illustrations to the left appeared, respectively, as our November-December 2011 ad and our January-February 2012 ad.
Sold items are transacted directly between buyer and seller. Far East Asian Art does not take a sellers commission or a buyers premium. As such, we also insist that
transactions as well as disputes remain solely between buyer and seller. Your present and continued use of our venue and bidding in our auctions acknowledges your acceptance
We have been developing auction services for some years now. They have been tested for the past year and a half with a few custom members. And they have been tested
fairly vigorously through the 2010 holiday seasons with multi-seller venues Cyberattic and Antiques-Art.com (a decorative arts auction venue for Trocadero members.) While we have
confidence in our auction processes and features, we must disclaim fitness of use particularly while they are still considered to be in Beta version. And we reserve the right to extend auction duration in the event
of any affecting issues near or upon scheduled closing times.
