The special exposition of the 40th Russian Antiquarian Salon is dedicated to the Chinese art.
The exhibition Silk Way in Time consists of two parts. The first one -  Masterpieces of the Chinese Art from Private Collections - presents works of the 17th century: a bell, a jade bull sculpture and a porcelain vase, as well as antiques of porcelain, nephrite, wood and filigree enamel of the 18th-19th centuries.
The second part displays the Chinese nephrite from Bronislav Vinogrodsky's collection.
