Curator One-on-One

Curator On-on-Ones are currently being offered virtually.

A Curator One-on-One is a fun and educational opportunity for Jade Circle, Jade Circle Gold, and Nexus members. Submit photographs of objects from your collection and meet virtually with a curator who will do his or her best to identify and give historical and stylistic information about the objects. If you have questions about the care of your objects, additional information can be provided by a conservator.

Members are allowed one Curator One-on-One per year. Consultations will last approximately 20 minutes.

  • Qualifying members may submit photos of up to three objects. Please include details such as seals and signatures.
  • Japanese objects are only seen in the afternoon.
  • No information about the objects will be provided in writing.
  • The monetary value of the objects will not be assessed.
  • At this time, we are only offering virtual Curator One-on-Ones.

Sign up for a Curator One-on-One here.
