Sale Time at Kashgar!


Dear __NAME__


When Bernie began Kashgar as a humble Sydney street stall back in 1991, he had no idea that it would expand into the business it is today, with a series of stores that have come and gone over the years and now our pride and joy, an online catalog and magazine all rolled into one.  During that time we've maintained our philosophy of buying only handmade goods, with each of our pieces still handpicked and bought at source, from itinerant street sellers to merchant traders in some of the great bazaars of the world in a time old tradition of dealing that we have maintained for 20 years.

Believe it or not, we still have some of those pieces from when we started it all - from cabinets simply too large to actually display to smaller obscure artifacts that have just been waiting all these years for the right person to come along and claim them as their own. And so, to celebrate our 20 year anniversary of trade and to finally clear out our cupboards, we are holding the biggest sale we've ever had.  More of a clearance than a sale, we are heavily discounting many individual items, with the principal focus on our collection of antique Chinese furniture.  Some of our biggest and best pieces are now reduced by up to 40% off:

chinese side tables

This matching pair of exquisite 19th century black lacquer northern elm wood and rattan side tables are from Shanxi Provence and are reduced from $1,159 to $900 each.

opium bed

Crafted from northern elm wood with a rattan on a solid wood base and railing sides, this beautiful and classic piece of furniture dates from the 19th century and is reduced from $5,800 to $3,999.


Other Chinese furniture sale items include:

  • A two drawer hardwood desk, circa 19th century, crafted from rare chicken-wing wood with inset burl wood panel, incorporating a cracked ice lattice foot panel and foot massage rollers. Reduced from $8,600 to $5,500, a saving of 36%.
  • A classic four panel pierced-carving  screen, reduced from $4,200 to $2,940, a saving of 30%
  • A square two door, two drawer red lacquered cabinet, reduced from $1,645 to $1,150, a saving of 30%
  • Two matching 24 drawer medicine cabinets in original painted lacquer, reduced from $1,980 each to $1,485 each, a reduction of 25%
  • Our lute sofa table, reduced from $2,346 to $1,720, a reduction of over 26%
  • A two meter elm wood altar table, perfect for a large hall or entrance way, reduced from $7,200 to $4,600, a massive saving of almost 40%!

This is just a small selection from our catalog of Chinese furniture on sale.


Our collection of beautiful antique Chinese calligraphy sighs are also reduced to clear:

We are also heavily discounting many of our smaller speciality and collectable items, including:
