How is my order shipped?
Each order is carefully checked and packaged before it leaves our warehouse.

Chinese Antique Furniture was made from wood that was not kiln dried and existed in a high humidity climate for many years. As wood is a natural living material, it will expand in a humid environment and contract in a drier environment to settle into its new situation. Lines may develop when antique furniture makes adjustment to its new home. The development of lines does not affect the structural integrity of a piece but adds character and allure to the piece. Our goal is to give you all information needed to assist you in making a decision with your purchase. If you are not familiar with furniture of this nature, please contact us with any questions you may have.
The age of each Chinese antique is provided by our suppliers. We choose our antique furniture suppliers based on the years they have been in the collecting and restoring antique furniture business and the expertise and knowledge they possess within their trade.

8) Wood Furniture Care
How do I clean and care of my wood furniture?
Proper handling, cleaning, and placement of fine wood furniture are essential to keep your products in the best condition for many years to come.
Temperature, humidity, and light can greatly affect the condition of wood furniture. Wood is a natural living material and will respond to changes in the atmosphere. Extreme fluctuations in temperature and strong light can cause furniture to dry out, fade, shrink, crack, or split. Extreme humidity can cause mold to expand.
It is very important to keep wood furniture in a stable temperature with regulated humidity.
- Do not expose fine wood furniture to extreme heat or humidity. Avoid placing furniture near a heat outlet such as radiators, hot air vents, air conditioners or open windows.
- Do not expose wood furniture to direct sunlight or artificial light as strong light may cause finishes to fade.
- Do not put plastic, rubber or hot objects such as hot coffee cups directly on a wood finish.
- Chemicals in those objects may soften or discolor the finish if left in contact with the furniture for a long period of time.
- Use a humidifier or dehumidifier to regulate the level of humidity desired. Placing a glass of water inside or underneath wood furniture can also help to maintain the correct level of humidity.
- Clear dust with a soft, clean cloth, dusting with the grain of the wood. The cloth may be dampened with a furniture dusting-aid or a furniture care polish product. Always follow the manufacturer’s directions on the product.
- Never use chemicals, abrasive kitchen cleansers, other commercial cleaners, or solvents on wood pieces.
- The furniture may be washed with a mild soap intended for that purpose or a furniture cleaning product available in most grocery stores. Follow the directions on the product, use a soft cloth and wipe with the grain.
- To best protect finish and keep shine of wood furniture, polish it with good quality, non-silicone furniture polish, following the grain of the wood every six months or so. Avoid using oily polishes or waxes.
- Avoid silicone-based or any type of products that may leave an oily film on the furniture since they may cloud of the finish and is very difficult to remove. Also avoid oil based polishes, as they tend to collect dust and even darken wood.
- Wipe spilled liquids from the surface immediately with a soft, slightly damp cloth, in the direction of the wood grain.
- Scratches from normal use may occur on furniture over time. These can be touched up with a scratch remover or special touch-up pens or sticks available at your furniture dealer or at many paint stores.
- To keep joints in optimal conditions, avoid harsh pushing or dragging of furniture across floor.
- When moving furniture, pieces should be padded and covered for transport to avoid scratches.
