Since 1979 Mr SANTOS has earned a deserved reputation of being a leading dealer in Chinese porcelain of the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries in the international world of fine antiques first as gallery owner in London and now as a private dealer at international shows in the United States and Europe.
Combining his passion for travelling and Chinese porcelain, Mr SANTOS searches continuously the world for porcelain of the Ming dynasty and from the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong reigns of the Qing dynasty in order to find the best and rarest objects for his discerning private collectors, museums, interior designers and fellow art dealers in Europe, Americas and Asia.
Selling Chinese porcelain, whether an inexpensive item for a few hundred dollars or a unique one for much more, Mr. SANTOS strives always to offer high quality and rare pieces at a fair price.
Mr Santos is author of a book with the title “Yongzheng, A Private Collection”. Since 2005 Mr. Santos has been working with an international team in the definitive work of Chinese porcelain ordered by the Portuguese market since the early days of 1520’s until the end of the Qing dynasty in 1911. So far four of the five volumes have been published with the title “PORTUGAL IN PORCELAIN FROM CHINA: 500 years of trade” by A. Varela Santos.
