|Gorgeous Arts & Crafts "Gorgeous" is
located near to Man Mo Temple on famous Antiques Street Hollywood Road
in Central, Hong Kong. The Gorgeous Gallery was founded by the couple
"Michael & Jan Wong" in 1994. Before the establishment of
the gallery, they were trading the Chinese folk antiques in Guangdong of
China for many years. During the past trading history and experience,

of antiques from different regions of China.

Gorgeous is eager to share knowledge of the background, custom,
symbolic and general use of antiques, what's more ……Gorgeous treat
each customer as friend and welcome their inquires and exchange
information. Gorgeous sincere wish the fine arts and antiques can give
you an amazing insight into the Chinese culture, heritage, history, soul
and living colours.
Customer's Comments: Michael and Jan make frequent trips to Jiangxi,
Hunan, Shanxi, Hebe, Henan, Yunnan, Guangxi to obtain their distinctive
artifacts. They then spend hours painstakingly cleaning and restoring
each piece. Some are mounted in layered frames that have been cut to
precisely echo the shape of the piece, but most are left so that the
purchaser can request their own preferences in style, shape, and colour.
Any visitor to this treasure trove will tell you that the most unique
features of Gorgeous Arts and Crafts are the owners themselves. They
seem to derive as much pleasure from explaining the history, utility,
and ornamentation of a piece of clothing, a craftsman's tool, or a piece
of jewelry than from selling the item itself. Their knowledge of
customs, folklore, and traditions of their homeland is extensive and
they have a good collection of books to provide further reference for
the most inquisitive minds.
