Bluett & Sons


Bluett & Sons exhibition of the George Eumorfopolous Collection; advert from Connoisseur, March 1935.

Dominic Jellinek, formerly of the major Chinese Works of Art dealership Bluett & Sons, contacted the project last week – thank you Dominic!

Bluett & Sons were one of the most significant dealerships in Chinese Works of Art; the firm was established c.1884 and continued trading until 1992.

Dominic has composed an extensive essay on Bluett & Sons, based on the archives of the dealership, with extracts from letters in the archive and overviews of the history of the firm.  The essay is part of another Arts and Humanities Research Board (now AHRC) funded project called CARP (Chinese Art – Research into Provenance).

One Comment to “Bluett & Sons”

  1. Hello

    Dominic is a treasure. He has assisted my research into an art dealer who offered consignments to the Bluetts… Without Dominic’s help, I surely would have reached a dead end…

    I’m still hunting out our “captain collins” – its certainly frustrating at best and I’ve lost him somewhere in the Marandellas, Zimbabwe…

    My best from Canada
