About Us

Hanlin Gallery was established by Carlos Prata in Hong Kong in 1986. It is the territory's leading specialist in fine Japanese woodblocks and works of art. Our Chinese collection comprises mostly the decorative arts of the China Trade such as textiles, export silver, lacquer, fans, ivory as well as literati items such as scholar's stone seals and carvings. We are well-known for our expertise and honesty with a client base consisting largely of collectors, dealers and museums both locally and internationally.

We are always interested in purchasing items within our chosen fields.

It is our intention to update our website on a regular basis with new inventory and we will be holding online exhibitions of special collections.

The items shown on our website represent only a fraction of our inventory. Please contact us if you are looking for something in particular or would like information about other pieces in our collection.
