Satisfying a timeless exuberance!

With great pleasure, we present you our 2020 catalogue Sancai – Three Colours! It is a celebration of Chinese ceramics that have a recognisable decoration in mainly three colours: green, brown and or amber with uncoloured areas in white. Though these are the main colours in this palette, it may encompass other colours as well. We have chosen this particular subject as it spans a long period of Chinese ceramic history. This well known romatich poet named Li Bai is a great example of sancai, three colours!

Discover the beauty of Oriental art in all our catalogues

Our newest catalogue is now online! Each catalogue is carefully made and dedicated to a specific type, period or collection of the finest Chinese artwork.

Eight Magazine 'Living with Chinese Art'

This is our first edition of our magazine Eight – Living With Chinese Art. With this magazine we aim to show the world how beautiful and accessible Chinese art can be and how well it works as part of an interior. Inspiration was also the key word, when we were deciding what content to include within the pages. There are a monumental amount of things we can get excited about in our world, so making a selection was not easy. Firstly we opted to show our objects in three completely different settings, classic as well as modern, which we think truly reflects the versatility of Chinese works of art. We hope that you will enjoy reading the magazine, as much as we did making it. Be inspired by the beautiful images, interesting people and through them enter our world!

It's the team effort that transforms an artwork in a Vanderven object.

The company is run by a small but expert team of four. Each one of us has it's own expertise with one passion we all share: Chinese art.
