About Catherine Hunt Oriental Antiques

Catherine (Cathy) Hunt established her business in 1988 taking the decision to base the business around the quality antique fairs circuit. The business has always been centred on Oriental antiques, more specifically pre-1780 Chinese ceramics and pre-1900 Chinese textiles; these two disciplines Cathy has always been passionate about. Although dealing as a sole trader Cathy has grown her business into an international company, achieved by careful selection of pieces to sell and by helping some collectors to develop fine collections.

Cathy left Oxford University with a degree in Modern History, which encompasses everything from when the Romans left to the modern day. It is the love of research and Chinese ceramics which brought her into the antique trade and which still keeps her busy writing articles and doing presentations which uses her skills that were developed when she taught History to A level.

Today she still deals in Oriental antiques on the international fair circuit but now has a presence in Heritage at Woodstock. At present Cathy is Chair of the Oriental vetting committee at The Antiques for Everyone fairs and is a regular vetter at other fairs including Penman and A. D. F. L. Fairs.

Elected to BADA membership for Chinese ceramics, mainly from the early 18th-century and earlier; pre-1900 Chinese textiles including rank badges.
