A major trade fair of antiques will open in Beijing this week to better create a promising yet ordered market of antique collection.

The 2020 Beijing• China Art International Fair will lift its curtain on Nov 25, and will last until Nov 29 in Beijing Antique City, the large-scale antique market by East Third Ring Road.

The event is a key part of the 15th China International Cultural & Creative Industry Expo. More than 60 State-owned antique stores and art piece dealers from across the country will gather for the fair, highlighting various artifacts including porcelains, jades, precious stones, paintings, jewelries, Buddha images, among others.

Exhibitions of private collections on stone rubbings, ceramics, bonsai, and other types will be showcased for the fair as well.

An auction with relatively low price will be held during the fair serving regular collections among the public on Friday. Over 200 antiques from the State-owned stores will be presented for the auctions, and some of them will have no reserve price.

And more online auctions are to be organized on the background of COVID-19, involving about 30 auction companies from 13 countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, and Canada.

Three free antique appraisal fairs are included in the schedule to benefit the public, inviting seven expert antique appraisers. Two hundred people will be allowed in each fair (on-site reservation will open half an hour before the activity begins).

The entry is free and more information is available on the website of Beijing Antique City.
