Serendipity: All Other Things Japanese

Serendipity is a happy and unexpected event that occurs due to chance, and often appears when we are searching for something else. Serendipity is a delight when it happens in our daily lives, as chance plays an important role in collecting, and has been responsible for some exciting discoveries in the antique and folk art worlds. An enduring cliche’ about Japan is that the old and traditional co-exist harmoniously with the modern lifestyle.

This catagory of our site will serve Japanese collectors and anyone interested in Japanese craft, the culture, and the history of the visual excitement of the objects which represent art, craft, and artisanship present in all antique and vintage Japanese arts and crafts produced by artists throughout Japan.
