China Trade For Sale on 1stDibs

With a vast inventory of beautiful furniture at 1stDibs, we’ve got just the China trade you’re looking for. Frequently made of wood, paper and paint, every China trade was constructed with great care. Whether you’re looking for an older or newer China trade, there are earlier versions available from the 18th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 20th Century. A China trade made by Regency designers — as well as those associated with Folk Art — is very popular. You’ll likely find more than one China trade that is appealing in its simplicity, but Michel Beurdeley, Sunqua and Wang Hing & Co. produced versions that are worth a look.

How Much is a China Trade?

Prices for a China trade can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $75 and can go as high as $65,000, while the average can fetch as much as $4,250.
