ALTFIELD Gallery was established in 1980 by Amanda Clark, an English designer from an old China Coast family, and David Halperin, a Harvard educated American lawyer.
Sharing an interest in early Chinese furniture and Asian decorative arts, they established Altfield as one of the first antique galleries to specialise in 18th and early 19th century Chinese furniture. Recognising the importance of careful restoration, they brought out English furniture restorers to Macau (the site or their original workshop, now moved to China) to train their carpenters in the fine art of furniture restoration.
Over time, new areas of specialisation were added to the Gallery, and in addition to Chinese furniture, Altfield is now a major dealer in Southeast Asian sculpture, Asian maps and topographical prints, Burmese and Cambodian silver, Indian jewellery and Asian decorative arts.
ALTFIELD Interiors was established almost 40 years ago, when the company was asked by Jim Thompson to represent their home furnishing fabrics in Hong Kong. At that time, Altfield had a small showroom that presented Jim Thompson's export collections to both retail and interior design clients. With Altfield's success in representing Jim Thompson, the company was soon asked to represent other leading international home furnishing lines, and subsequently expanded both its showroom and its sales staff to deal with the increasing number of lines it now represents.
