Art Shopping

Collectors and connoisseurs of fine art, antiques and jewellery will find that Singapore has an extensive range of art galleries and antique houses to suit discerning tastes.

Two of the world's most reputable auctions houses - Sotheby's and Glerum & Bonhams - feature a wide range of items, from jewellery, jade and porcelain to increasingly popular Southeast Asian paintings to books and maps.

International auctions and fairs are not all Singapore has to offer. Local carpet houses hold auctions at which quality hand-knotted carpets from the Middle East, China, Pakistan, Turkey, India and Afghanistan come under the hammer.
