Robyn Turner, one of the only art dealers in the world to focus primarily on jade carvings after the Han period, has been dealing in Asian Art since 1976. With an inventory including Chinese glass, lacquer and bronzes, her specialty is Chinese jade. Robyn feels beneath every astounding collection, beneath every erudite collector, lies an excitable child driven not by prestige or power, but by passion.

From the Dealer
Viewing Jade throughout the centuries of Chinese History becomes magical and changes your perspective and enhances the way you view the world, in the past and in the present. Jade as a stone represents beauty, culture and peace…three factors that have been important since the beginning of mankind. It is comforting to know that in our present day due to the sophisticated archaeological and scientific techniques our knowledge and expertise’s now more accurate than ever before.
