Specialist dealer in Japanese Works of Art.
Laura Bordignon has been specialising in Japanese works of art since 1997 particularly metalwork and okimono carvings from the Meiji period, of which she has developed a significant knowledge.
As a result she is consulted by an international clientele, advising collectors on how to expand their existing collections as well as starting new ones.
Laura's detailed knowledge allowed her to write the book titled "The Golden Age of Japanese Okimono" a long time ambition of hers. As very little has been published on the subject the book introduces readers to the most comprehensive study of Japanese Okimono artists active during the Meiji Period (1868-1912). Beautifully illustrated with over 200 photographs of Japanese carvings, bronzes and shibayama objects from the Dr A.M Kanter Collection, guidance is given to help collectors identify the different materials used for these carvings as well as the various metalwork and shibayama techniques.
