Doerr Dallas offers Asian art valuation and appraisals, which covers all aspects of fine art from Turkey through Persia and India into the Far East. But the main areas are those items from China and Japan. These often focus on ancient and antique pieces but in recent years there has been a great flowering of contemporary art in Asia.

Central Asian art primarily consists of works by the Turkic peoples of the Eurasian Steppe, while East Asian art includes works from China, Japan, and Korea. South Asian art encompasses the arts of the Indian subcontinent, with Southeast Asian art including the art of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

West Asian art encompasses the arts of the Near East, including the ancient art of Mesopotamia, and more recently becoming dominated by Islamic art.

Particularly collectable are Chinese pieces made for the home market. These were ideally made for the Ming and Qing Royal Courts as well as ancient pieces from the Han, Tang, Song and Yuan dynasties where provenance, or place of origin, has become very important.

With pieces spanning history, from modern 20th Century objects to the Neolithic, Qing and Jomon periods, every item has a story just waiting to be discovered.

The current strength of the Far Eastern market, where works of art and antiques are being brought back to their homelands, has led to a rapid increase in the value of items.
