gallery information

"Since it was founded in 1975 by Helga Fleishman, the Imari Gallery has built one of the nation's foremost collections of Japanese antiques. Nestled in the hills of Sausalito overlooking the bay, the gallery offers Japanese art and antiques as dramatic and beautiful as the surrounding landscape. Each carefully selected piece, from bronzes to baskets, and from lacquer boxes to screen paintings, is a truly unique work of art which will lend elegance and prestige to any home or office.

The owners of the Imari Gallery travel extensively in search of new acquisitions, and many of their most prized pieces have come from private sources. The gallery is particularly well known for its stunning collection of Japanese screens, which is recognized as one of the finest outside Japan. A varied selection and excellent value make the Imari Gallery a source not just for collectors and interior designers, but also for art and antiques dealers. Indeed, many recent sales have been to dealers from Japan and Europe.

Whether you're a dealer, a collector or a novice, aesthetic appeal should be a priority when buying Japanese antiques. Still, it is reassuring to know that the value of Japanese art has remained consistently high because it is supported by the passionate -- rather than speculative -- interest of collectors. Come to the Imari Gallery and discover what so many collectors already know -- the pleasure of owning fine Japanese antiques."
