The next ‘Straits Chinese Antique Auction’ is coming in May 2018

Message from MNP Auctioneers (Central) Sdn Bhd

We often hear of some paintings or banknotes being auctioned off for huge sums of money. These auctions usually happen in some advanced economies outside Malaysia. Actually, these asset auctions are already happening in Malaysia. The actions during these auctions are hot as well because the collectors are in the market because they would like to collect / own a piece of ‘history.’ During these auctions too we could see some new collectors and even the curious public. Many would have items in their possession which may be worth having it auctioned off to the highest bidder. The sellers could also choose to sell the item to individual collectors but in all these one to one transactions, the price would often be determined by the single seller instead of being offered to the highest bidder.

In the previous Straits Chinese Antique Auction conducted by MNP Auctioneers on 26th November 2017 in Penang, many items saw keen bidding interest and one such item, a ‘very rare lime green goldfish bowl’ started at RM15,000 but the bidding frenzy ended only at RM40,000. There are many more rare items which had new owners too. Based on the age of these items, it is very safe to conclude that every piece broken accidentally today or tomorrow meant that there is one less piece in this world, not just in Malaysia. To understand more, please feel free to take a look at all the items here. If you have some pieces that you would like to auction off, do not miss the next Straits Chinese Antique Auction 2018.
