Honeychurch Antiques
The History of Honeychurch Antiques

Founded by John and Laurie Fairman, Honeychurch Antiques specializes in fine Asian antique art, all hand selected and one-of-a-kind. Honeychurch was first established in Hong Kong in 1963 on Hollywood Road long before Hollywood Road became a world famous center for Asian antique art. Glenn and Lucille Vessa, long time residents of Asia and highly respected dealers of Asian art and Chinese export silver, run the Hong Kong shop.

Honeychurch Antiques in Seattle carries an eclectic blend of Asian art from as early as the fifth millennium BC up to the early half of the 20th century. Furniture includes 18th -19th century Chinese and Japanese furniture, paintings, screens and prints, as well as porcelains and pottery including Han Dynasty (3rd century B.C.) burial figures from China, and 14th century Vietnamese porcelains discovered in an early shipwreck. Items range from exceedingly rare and wonderful objects worthy of any museum's collections, to the merely decorative antique perfect for home décor. Both galleries have earned an international reputation for integrity in business, in addition to well-chosen and thoroughly researched art. See recent review here.

In 1998, Honeychurch Antiques opened a second gallery warehouse, called Glenn Richards, which specializes in Asian furnishings and antiques for everyday use. Please link to the Glenn Richards website below.
