Established in 1910, Ralph M. Chait Galleries is the oldest specialist gallery in the United States in the field of fine antique Chinese porcelain and works of art. The Gallery is run by Steven and Andrew Chait, (the third generation of the family).
Over the years, the Gallery has sold pieces to many important Collectors as well as major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Freer Gallery; the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; the Los Angeles Country Museum; the St. Louis Art Museum; the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Baltimore Museum of Art; the Norton Museum of Art; the Sackler Gallery; and the Peabody Essex Museum. The Gallery has also worked with many major architects, decorators, and designers.
The Gallery has for decades exhibited in many prestigious antique fairs in the United States, including today the Winter Antiques Show, the Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show, the Delaware Antiques Show, and the Nantucket Summer Antiques Show.
As a third-generation family business we are cognizant of and steeped in its past but always are looking ahead. The Gallery is open Monday - Friday and collectors or those interested in Chinese Art are most welcome to visit.
