South China Sea Decorative Arts

The 18th century was a time of immense change and growth in the South China Sea region. During this period, many antiques were created, including furniture, pottery, jewelry, and other decorative items. These antiques were often made from materials such as jade, porcelain, and lacquer, and were decorated with intricate designs and motifs. They were highly sought after by collectors and are still highly prized today. The South China Sea antiques of the 17th and 18th century were often created to reflect the culture and values of the people living in the region, and many of these pieces are now considered to be works of art.
